This size comparison shows the picture of the M87 black hole by the Event Horizon Telescope (the first ever image of a black hole) with a scale image of the Solar System overlaid on it. The latter shows the Sun, Pluto (the farthest planet from the Sun), and Voyager 1, the deep-space probe that is currently farthest from Earth. (click to enlarge)

  1. Wow, looks good, especially the end. I was searching for that subject for a couple of
    days throughout the nest, but there was not anything precious.

    So pleased to achieve your post at the end. I’m excited about
    this theme, and I want to be always aware of
    the latest news. That’s a joy to read your article and finally clarify
    the issue myself.
