Soundgarden Fans Petition To Name Newly-Photographed Black Hole After Chris Cornell

The recent collaboration of over 200 scientists from around the world achieved the historic milestone of taking the first-ever picture of a black hole using Event Horizon Telescope (EHT), a world-spanning network of telescopes.

Others saw a black hole of infinite depth where all enter but none return. Now, a group of longtime fans have started a petition to name the black hole after Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell, who tragically died by suicide in 2017.

But the Event Horizon Telescope (a worldwide network of radio telescopes) could soon produce something even more dazzling - a video of a black hole in motion. "This would be a "surreal" and incredible way to honor his life and his contribution to music".

"This may be a huge day in astronomy", aforementioned America National Science Foundation Director France Córdova.

UB physicists said they were astounded by the detail of the image, and that the ability to visualize a black hole heralds a new era of science in the field.

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

Walsh says that the image's significance goes beyond viral internet content: this image, and how close astronomers were able to get to the black hole, help confirm theories about relativity, specifically, Albert Einstein's.

Astrophysicist Dimitrios Psaltis of the University of Arizona, the EHT project scientist, said, "The size and shape of the shadow matches the precise predictions of Einstein's general theory of relativity, increasing our confidence in this century-old theory".

Black holes are also almost impossible to see.

The project's researchers obtained the primary knowledge in April 2017 victimization telescopes within the America states of Arizona and Hawaii moreover as in North American nation, Chile, European nation and continent. Captured by a global network of ground-based telescopes, the image showed a dark abyss at the center of a glowing ring of super-heated gas. The global network of telescopes has essentially created a planet-sized observational dish.
