Why is the image of a black hole idiotic? This is great.

because the picture is not really of the black hole. the picture is of the red and orange glow.

That is exactly an image of a black hole. We can model it, what else were you expecting. And now we can model it better.

Being pedantic about the term "black hole image" is somewhat idiotic

No, that image is not the model. Scientists had models predicting what it would look like. Now we have an actual image, data, to compare with the models.

It is a truly fantastic achievement. Dismissing it is what is somewhat idiotic. It is a triumph of the group of scientists that did it, and of science as a whole.

Glad someone pointed this out.

Clearly this image is catered towards pop science fans as whilst one can learn from the image itself it just does not make sense from a cosmological point of view.

Please, why doesnt it make sense from a cosmological point of view?

"Black holes are so small, dark and distant that observing them directly requires a telescope with a resolution equivalent to being able to see a bagel on the moon. This was once thought to be an insurmountable challenge."

this is truly revolutionary

Okay, so what now?

What do we do with this "image" that we found of this black hole?

It won't put food on your table but nevertheless it's a big step in terms of space exploration.

Did you ask "what do we do with this" after the moon landing? I don't know what's your deal. I'm not saying this is as big as the moon landing BTW, before you jump on that and start word-picking.
