Stunning images show magnetic fields around a black hole in the Milky Way Galaxy – Space

Stunning images show magnetic fields around a black hole in the Milky Way Galaxy – Space

A team of 70 physicists are convinced that there is a supermassive black hole at the center of our Milky Way Galaxy, similar to those found in most spiral and elliptical galaxies. This was called the star arc. Two years ago, the Event Horizon Telescope was able to capture the first image of this black hole. The collaboration recently released a stunning new image of Sergei Terreus' star, revealing the swirling magnetic fields at its center.

The new recordings constitute a great success for researchers

The image is not only aesthetically pleasing, but is remarkably similar to another polarized image of an even larger supermassive black hole, M87*. This represents a major achievement for the researchers because both images show strong magnetic fields. “This suggests that this could be a universal and perhaps fundamental feature of this type of system,” explains Maria Felicia De Lorenz of the University of Naples Federico II in Italy.

It took scientists several years and the use of multiple supercomputers to make the new image visible. The Event Horizon Telescope is not an independent telescope, but rather an association of various research institutions around the world that have linked their telescopes to form a giant giant telescope.
