for thousands of years the human race have looked into space and wondered what is really out there, thanks to advances in electromagnetic radiation detection it is now possible for humans to study the universe in depth to develop theories such as a heliocentric model of the universe instead of the earlier believed geocentric model. Humans have also been able to observe never before seen phenomena such as the effects of black holes. The national aeronautics and space administration (NASA) are responsible for many of the advances in electromagnetic detection technology advances and intern responsible for many of the discoveries.
The first ever telescope was made in 1610 by the famous astronomer Galileo Galilei within his first year of observation he had discovered four of Jupiter’s largest moons as well

The question ‘’ how can we see black holes if the suck in light?’’ has been asked by a lot of people for many years, this question can be answered with a very simple answer, we use specialist equipment to detect the effects of a black hole these range from swirling gas called ‘matter swirling’ to hole star being rotated around a fixed point of gravity also known as black hole. This movement generated heat which intern emits EM waves which re detected by special instruments called ‘’black hole hunters’’. An instrument aboard the NASA Hubble Space Telescope, called the Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph (STIS), which was installed in February 1997 is Hubble’s main "black hole hunter’’. It is responsible for many black hole discoveries such as the black hole in the galaxy
