In a historic feat by the Event Horizon Telescope and National Science Foundation (@NSFgov), an image of a black hole and its shadow has been captured for the first time. Several of our missions were part of a large effort to observe the same black hole using different wavelengths of light and collect data to understand the black hole's environment. Here's a look at @NASAChandraXRay Observatory's close-up of the core of the M87 galaxy and the black hole at the center of it. Credits: NASA/CXC/Villanova University/J.

The black hole is located at the centre of Messier 87, the light is being pulled into the black hole at the centre of M87 the largest galaxy which is about 54 million light-years away.
To capture the image of the black hole several telescopes were placed all around the world which was later combined to boost their power in order to create the most anticipated picture for the first time to understand the path of the universe. It is said the data which went into creating the picture is equivalent to 40,000 selfies people might take throughout their life.
Katie Bouman is the women behind the Black Hole image. The mad coding skills of the PhD student made the impossible into possible.
Nasa released the picture with the caption ‘game-changing breakthrough’.
