See You On The Dark Side Of The Black Hole - Einstein Was Right Again.

Light that goes into that black hole doesn’t come out, so we shouldn’t be able to see anything behind one, but if a black hole is warping space, bending light and twisting magnetic fields around itself, then according to Einstein's theory of general relativity direct observation of light from behind a black hole should be possible.Now it has happened Material falling into a supermassive black hole powers the brightest continuous sources of light in the universe, and as it does so, forms a corona around the black hole. This light – which is X-ray light – can be analyzed to map and characterize a black hole.The leading theory for what a corona is starts with gas sliding into the black hole where it superheats to millions of degrees. As he took a closer look to investigate the origin of the flares, he saw a series of smaller flashes. These, the researchers determined, are the same X-ray flares but reflected from the back of the disk – a first glimpse at the far side of a black hole. I’d already seen them in the theory I’ve been developing, so once I saw them in the telescope observations, I could figure out the connection.”
