04:42 Yahoo ScienceWhy didn’t scientists photograph the black hole at the center of the Milky Way?

After years of work and a whole lot of hype, researchers working with the Event Horizon Telescope project finally unveiled the very first image ever captured of an actual black hole this week. The relatively low-res image was nonetheless fantastic, and the fact that scientists were able to capture an image of the black hole from a distance of approximately 55 million light-years away is absolutely mind-boggling.But wait, we live in the Milky Way galaxy, and at the center of it is what scientist believe is a supermassive black hole called Sagittarius A*. Our galaxy is only around 150,000 to 200,000 light years across, so wouldn't it have been a whole lot easier to just photograph our own black hole instead?That's a question I've seen a few times on social media since the first black hole photo began circulating, and

In quantum mechanics, the Heisenberg uncertainty principle prevents an external observer from measuring both the position and speed (referred to as momentum) of a particle at the same time. They can only know with a high degree of certainty either one or the other—unlike what happens at large scales where both are known. To identify a given particle's characteristics, physicists introduced the notion of quasi-distribution of position and momentum. This approach was an attempt to reconcile quantum-scale interpretation of what is happening in particles with the standard approach used to understand motion at normal scale, a field dubbed classical mechanics.

Currently, rapid data transfer via optical fiber is accomplished by transmitting light signals that code data by modulating the light intensity. Due to physical limitations, data transfer that is based on a modulation of light intensity, without utilizing complex modulation formats, can only reach frequencies of around 40 to 50 gigahertz. Further, in order to achieve this speed, high electrical currents are necessary. In a novel approach to data transfer, researchers from Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) used a semiconductor spin laser to enable room-temperature modulation frequencies above 200 GHz. According to the researchers, this frequency level is nearly an order of magnitude faster than the best conventional semiconductor lasers. The modulation of light polarization, rather than light intensity, is the basis of the new system. The spin lasers, which are just a few
