Amazing news of the first direct image of a Black Hole in galaxy M87. Strangely I was part way through re-reading the novel BLACK HOLES by the S.F. writer Jerry Pournelle for the first time since 1978, it's been in my bookcase since then.
In it he states " Black Holes remain a theory. No-one has ever seen one - indeed, by definition no one will EVER see one"
Motto:- Never guess the future, apart from the astronomical future becoming utterly amazing.
The book is probably only available in an OXFAM shop now but a good, if now dated, read.
