New Black Hole Images Show Swirling Magnetic Fields

Scientists have captured detailed images of black holes in the Milky Way and M87 galaxies using the Event Horizon Telescope, which combines telescopes globally. The process involves imaging the shadow created by light bending due to the black hole’s gravitational pull. Despite the significant difference in their masses, the magnetic fields of the black holes in both galaxies behave similarly and are well-organized.
