This week, leading up to the release of the pictures of the super massive black hole Sagittarius A* at the center of the milkyway, I have done a bit of background research on the topic and learn that they are also looking at trying to get an picture of the super massive black hole at the center of Messier 87. That black hole is suppose of be a lot larger then Sagittarius A* but it is like 53 million light years away compared to Sagittarius A* which is only 26000 light years away. Black holes are fairly dark and small so if it was so hard getting an image of one that is only 26000 light years away, it seems impossible to get a picture of one 53 million light years away. Does any one know how they plan on getting an image? It is actually a lot more active then Sagittarius A* so I can see that playing a factor but I just cant get over the distance and how the difficulty should seemingly increase by many orders of magnitude.
