The first image of a black hole just became even more fascinating.
At the center of the Messier 87 (M87) galaxy is a supermassive black hole about 38 billion kilometers wide, a behemoth so dense that not even light can escape its gravitational pull.
By observing polarized light around M87, scientists working with Event Horizon Telescope, an international collaboration of researchers, were able to produce the image. It shows the spiral-like pattern of the black hole’s magnetic fields, the first image of its kind.
The light comes from the superheated gas caught in the black hole’s event horizon, the point of no return from which not even light can escape. It traveled 55 million light years to reach Earth. Read more…

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is proving to be every bit the six-part movie — and we just found out who the villain is.
In episode 1, Torres loops Sam into his investigation of the Flag Smashers, an international terrorist group who believe life was better during the Blip and that we should live in a unified, borderless world.
But as episode 2 reveals, there’s a lot more going on.
Sam and Bucky go head-to-head and hand-to-vibranium-arm with the Smashers in a stunning fight sequence set atop two moving trucks — and learn that the Smashers are super soldiers, just like Bucky and Steve.
