First, congrats to the event horizon team for the first photograph of a black hole.
Not to downplay the significance of the photo, but it is a bit blurry. Still, it got me thinking.
One might expect that the area in the accretion disk close to the event horizon would be rife with gravitational waves and other distortions. Given the inverse square rule , Would those undulations and distortions iin the accretion disk be so pronounced as to be visible in a future video of greater resolution and clarity?
