Re: Explanation request
In the press conference, they mentioned a clockwise spin, and that the bright portion of the disk is moving towards the observer, while the darker portion is moving away from the observer.
For whatever reason, I was expecting a more uniform accretion disk than observed. But that's my lack of expertise showing.
I'm curious what results were considered "expected" and what was "unexpected". It's not something they delved into at the presser.
