(Big Think)   Originally proposed in 1783, we now see black holes' electromagnetic emissions, gravitational wave emissions, and even their event horizons directly. It truly is their golden age   (bigthink.com) divider line

And with JWST coming online next month, they are going to have to rewrite the cosmology books. Get ready to have your universe turned upside down.

I am so excited to see what the JWST finds out there.

No, its babys first picture

The golden age will be if we can actually get within 10 light years of a black hole to observe it

We do not see their EM emissions. The recent pic is from light very near it. Other than Hawking radiation which simply can't be seen unless the black hole is microscopic, they simply don't emit EM radiation. Remember the whole point of a BH is that light can't escape it.

It's a golden age for observing black holes.  I doubt it's a golden age for the black hole itself, simply because something fleshy, that has less than a trillionth of a trillionth of a trillionth of a trillionth of the black hole's mass, can kind of see it now.
