Exploring a Black Hole Environment

This artist’s impression delves into the surroundings of a black hole, showing an accretion disc of superheated plasma and a relativistic jet. It also depicts the paths of photons in the vicinity of a black hole. The gravitational bending and capture of light by the event horizon is the cause of the shadow captured by the Event Horizon Telescope.
