At PhysicsWorld: Image of black hole and its shadow is the breakthrough of the year

The image is thought to establish that black holes really do exist; they are not just astrophysicists’ imaginings.

The black holes has a mass “6.5 billion times that of the Sun:”

This now-iconic image shows the doughnut-shaped ring of radio emissions surrounding a supermassive black hole that lies at the centre of a galaxy 55 million light-years from Earth. Event Horizon Telescope astronomers are the first to obtained images of the region near the event horizon of a black hole – the point beyond which matter and energy cannot escape the object’s intense gravity. This was done by combining the outputs of eight radio dishes in six different locations across the globe, which itself is an engineering triumph.

More on the black hole.

Yet the image attests to the YeC SPIRAL cosmological redshift hypothesis and model's 'Black Hole illusion resolution' where we find no ongoing hyper-density at galactic center black holes, just as well or better than the current consensus explanation of ongoing hyper-density. The appearance belies most/all of the matter in each galaxy originated by it's center when the universe was still hyper-dense. That proto-galactic formation PRECEDED cosmic inflation expansion. The universe reached mature size and density after 4/365(5780) of it's 'thousands, not billions', year age. reference SPIRAL's 'Black-hole illusion resolution' in volume III of the YeC Moshe Emes series for Torah and science alignment.
