Enchanting NASA simulation reveals the beauty with which black holes distort space time
- It was made for NASA & # 39; s black hole week by NASA Goddard Center
- Is a side view of the black hole and shows the & # 39; front & # 39; on the left side of the video
- The center reveals the horizon where nothing can escape the appeal of the black hole
NASA has produced a fascinating visualization of what it would look like if we could see how a blackhole manipulates gravitational waves.
The visualization simulates the appearance of a black hole where matter has collected into a thin, hot structure around it called an accretion disk.
It shows gravity as bright orange stripes melt around the central core while the hugely dense object skews and pulls on everything around it.
Magnetic fields cause knots to form and disappear, with the enormous power of nature's most extreme environment, space-time causes time to weave in orbit.
Not only light, but entire galaxies can circle around black holes and the gas closest to the center of the black hole can rotate at the speed of light.
It was made for the black hole week of NASA and shows what we would expect in high resolution images of a super heavy black hole.
The black center represents the event horizon, where the power of the black hole is so severe that nothing can escape from it, with waves and particles that do not have the necessary escape speed to resist its draft.
Gravity light bending becomes so excessively close to the black hole that the underside of the disc is visible.
This is called a photon ring and consists of several separate rings that gradually become weaker.
The visualization of NASA is actually a side view, with the light and the top actually from behind the black hole.
This also explains why the left side that goes to the viewer is brighter than the right.

This comes down to the Doppler effect, the same phenomenon that distorts the sound of sirens while police cars & ambulances go by.
It causes an accumulating effect of the waves coming towards us when they reach a higher frequency, and those who leave us become a lower frequency when they leave.
This is also known as red-shifting and helps researchers to study the size and expansion of the universe.
& # 39; Simulations and movies like this really help us to visualize what Einstein meant when he said that gravity distorts the structure of space and time & # 39 ;, explains Jeremy Schnittman, who generated these beautiful images with custom software in the Goddard Space NASA Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.
& # 39; Until recently, these visualizations were limited to our imagination and computer programs & # 39; s.
& # 39; I never thought it would be possible to see a real black hole. & # 39;
On April 11, the world was astonished when the Event Horizon telescope ever released the first image of a black hole.
The image, somehow less detailed than the latest computer equivalent, captured radio observations from the heart of the M87 galaxy.
