Data gathered with the help of the NuSTAR and Chandra infers that the supermassive black hole releases constant streams of high-energy which travel at speed close to that of lights, traversing a distance of nearly 1,000 light-years.

The black hole that was captured in a first-ever picture has a moniker was named "Powehi", which means "establishing dark source of unending creation".

The proven fact that black holes don't permit lightweight to flee makes viewing them tough.

"For this reason, and the impact Chris Cornell had in the lives of so many and music itself, I ask NASA, the Event Horizon Telescope Collaboration and all the astronomers and scientists involved in this discovery, to name this black hole after Chris Cornell".

But, the fuzzy image that looks like a ring of fire, "is the most direct visualization - it's a really dramatic step forward in our ability to say here is a black hole and it cast a shadow".

Previously, indirect evidence and a great deal of speculation had been published concerning the mysterious existence of black holes.

Einstein's baby, general relativity (E=MC squared was his mistress), predicts that any object collapsing beyond a certain point would form a black hole, inside which a singularity would appear.

The fact that black holes do not allow light to escape makes viewing them hard.

This new research might change that. Yet, nobody knows how they formed or got so heavy.

"Imaging a black hole is just the beginning of our effort to develop new tools that will enable us to interpret the massively complex data that nature gives us", Psaltis added.

The rest of us were treated to a picture of an event horizon, one most thought we'd never live to see - Wikileaks founder, Julian Assange, being dragged out of the Ecuadorian Embassy in London looking like an off-season and oft-fired Santa's helper that stayed on the Keto diet far too long. But some black holes, especially supermassive ones dwelling in the galaxies center, stand out by voraciously accreting bright disks of gas and other material.
