First black hole image also opens the door to allowing strana mors and physicists to test Stein's theories and many other game changing scientific opportunities the bright patch in the south UC tells us that material moving around the black hole is moving at light speeds, which is also consistent with our simulations and predictions, and this image forges a clear link now between supermassive black holes.
