The Black Hole "Depiction" was created from data derived from various Radio Telescope Data.

So, a serious scientist called out these Science PR people trolling for grant money and, they had to come clean or be busted big time in public.

It's an Artist's creation (Photoshop) from Radio Telescope Data.


More Science BS. I wonder if these same media people write Global Warming grant proposals ?

@Mmmmkay_Ultra
Ohhh, Data.
Of course.

Facepalm

Yep, we have reams and reams of data. Let's "extrapolate" and "interpret" it for public consumption and NSF money. If the public is interested, they will cut us a big check.

I saw this game go on in high energy physics. No photoshop back then and, the press people couldn't understand the press releases. Too stupid. And, if they could grasp a little, they couldn't write it for public consumption.

During the press conference they said they used radio telescopes. They did however play it off that it was an actual image

They should just wait for Don Le'Mond to interrupt it for "his public".

More like the gravitational margin. Light cannot escape that region.
It is puzzling, because the light emitting material must be in a gravitational disc, or it would be an orb.

Yum, gravity donuts! Brain food.

It is called the Accretion Disk.

Reporting is soooooooo fluckin lame these days.

Yeah, they just made up a bunch of BS.

There is a worldwide network of radio telescopes.

But then they have to lie and make a fake image.
