Space telescopes spot light for the first time ‘echo’ from behind black hole

For the first time, scientists have seen the light from behind a black hole.

Black holes are regions in space-time where gravity is so powerful that not even light can escape its grip. Although light cannot escape a black hole, the extreme gravitational force revolves around space, allowing light to “echo”, bending around the back of the object. Due to this strange phenomenon, astronomers have for the first time observed the light from behind a black hole.
