Astronomy: Do You Know "The Point Of No Return..?"

Black Holes

(This image, created using computer models, shows how the extreme gravity of the black hole in M87 distorts the appearance of the jet near the event horizon. Part of the radiation from the jet is bent by gravity into a ring that is known as the ‘shadow’ of the black hole. Image: Avery E.
