‘Point of no return’ found | Peering to the edge of a black hole | This artist’s conception shows the region immediately surrounding a supermassive black hole (the black spot near the center). The black hole is orbited by a thick disk of hot gas. The center of the disk glows white-hot, while the edge of the disk is shown in dark silhouette. Magnetic fields channel some material into a jetlike outflow — the greenish wisps that extend to upper right and lower left. #science #space
