A Black hole is not a hole as is commonly understood, rather, it is a great amount of matter packed into a very small area. Consider big star ten times more massive than the Sun squeezed into a sphere approximately the diameter of New York City. The result is a gravitational field so strong that nothing, not even light, can escape. NASA instruments have painted a new picture of these strange objects that are, to many, the most fascinating objects in space.











Last is a stellar-mass black hole in orbit with a companion star located about 6,000 light years from Earth(pic taken by Chandra Telescope)

The images are not actual pictures from the Chandra X-ray telescope, they are artists rendering of what NASA think you would see if you were close enough.

I lack the imagination for a witty signature.

This article has a link to a Vox video that has a great explanation for why we don't have a picture of a black hole (yet). Can't wait for them to release the picture, hopefully this year.

"The Vox.com video above explains that nearly all images we see of black holes are artist’s illustrations. The ones that aren’t illustrations show, at best, the effects of black holes on the space around them – for example, stars in tightly bound orbits, gas heated to high temperatures, or relativistic jets."

The link reveals everything about Black holes and other objects in space as of now.

Were the holes discovered by a stargazer named Black?
