First black hole ever photographed loses energy from ‘lightsaber’ jets

A few years ago, astronomers first saw a patch of cosmic darkness long thought invisible: a black hole, a powerful, elusive beast so dense that not even light can escape its gravity .

Black holes are known to gobble up anything that comes near them – gas, stars, planets and even other black holes. But this fuzzy, donut-like black hole (more later refined by AI into a thin ring) in the M87 galaxy is slowly breaking the stereotypes of black holes. On the one hand, this seems to give back the universe losing energy.
