    The first picture of black holes taken

    https://www.sciencenews.org/article/...izon-telescope

    This is pretty ecstatic. I will probably be doing a research paper to learn more about it and do a concept speech over it the next few speech. Pretty freaking legendary.

    Pretty insane accomplishment and even crazier that Einstein figured out they existed fifty years ago.

    This is an amazing discovery, I've been reading up on it all day.

    If you recognize that prior to this picture, all we had were theories about how the black hole would look and function, and this image CONFIRMS many of the popular theories that have directed astronomy and science for the last century.

    The one thing I'm having trouble wrapping my head around is when general relativity comes into play, maybe someone knows more about it here? All I know is I read something that this image/black hole needs to be monitored to confirm/debunk another theory about the event horizon and how it apparently contradicts (?) our theory of general relativity?

    I'm not sure what you mean about "when general relativity comes into play", but for the second part if your question:

    Einstein's relativity, or general relativity, makes several claims about spacetime and how the curvature of spacetime is directly related to the mass, energy, radiation,etc... of an object or particle. Having said that, black holes are objects that that at their core, theoretically, have infinite mass. This, based on what I already explained, would mean that since it has infinite mass, it should have an infinite or at least a very strong impact on the curvature of spacetime(this is a huge dumbing down of the theory by the way). This picture represents what a blackhole according to general relativity would appear as:


    That massive well you see labelled event horizon, that's the point of infinite mass. That's why as you can tell there's massive curvature at that singular point. Also this isn't the only prediction general relativity makes, it also predicts the expanding universe and several other cool ideas.

    Now as for the debunking you mentioned, I'm not entirely sure what you're referring to. We know that since there's infinite mass in the singularity, general relativity would not be 'well behaved' at that point and we don't really know what happens there. Think of it as dividing by zero or multiplying by infinity. So us monitoring the singularity, assuming we even can, wouldn't necessarily contradict general relativity, but it would fill in the blanks.
