Unveiling the Mystery: Why We Don’t See Expected Light Peaks from Black Holes?

Black holes, the mysterious and powerful giants of the universe, are known for their ability to swallow everything, even light. But there’s much more to black holes than just their darkness. When hot gas spirals into a black hole, it emits light, and by studying this light, scientists can learn about the black hole’s mass, spin, and tilt. However, something puzzling has been happening: the expected patterns in this light aren’t showing up as predicted. Let’s explore why this is and what new findings are helping us solve this cosmic mystery.
