How to Understand the Image of a Black Hole

Veritasium

"We have just seen the first image of a black hole, the supermassive black hole in the galaxy M87 with a mass 6.5 billion times that of our sun. But what is that image really showing us?

This is an awesome paper on the topic by J.P. Luminet:
Image of a spherical black hole with thin accretion disk
Astronomy and Astrophysics, vol. 75, no. 1-2, May 1979, p. 228-235
https://ve42.co/luminet

Using my every day intuition I wondered: will we see the "shadow" of the black hole even if we're looking edge on at the accretion disk? The answer is yes because the black hole warps space-time, so even if we wouldn't normally be able to see the back of the accretion disk, we can in this case because its light is bent up and over the black hole. Similarly we can see light from the bottom of the back of the accretion disk because it's bent under the bottom of the black hole. Plus there are additional images from light that does a half turn around the black hole leading to the inner rings."

If you stare at the image long enough, you see two faces approaching from each side, as if to kiss. Spooky.

Video created by Insys Therapeutics - to market a Fentanyl delivery system. The video features a dancing "Subsys" fentanyl dispenser.
Senior execs from the company have been found guilty of racketeering.  They were bribing doctors to over-prescribe.  Only in America.
