CARL AZUZ: Landscape

a black hole, and a shipwreck
are three of our topics

today on "CNN 10."
I'm Carl Azuz.
It's great to have you watching.
We're starting with
election results

in the nation of Israel.
This is America's closest
ally in the Middle East.

It's a parliamentary
democracy led by Prime

Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
And he was hoping to win a fifth
term as Israeli leader, which

would make him the longest
serving prime minister

in the nation's history.
It was a close race.
With more than 97%
of the vote counted,

Prime Minister
Netanyahu's party looked

like it was neck and neck with
the party of his former chief

of staff, Benny Gantz.
Each of their parties was
projected to win 35 seats.

To be prime minister,
you need to have

the support of at least
61 seats in Israel's

Knesset, its parliament.
So what election
analysts have to do

is look beyond the actual
number of seats a party won

and tally up the
number of other seats

that are likely to support it.
When they did that, it appeared
the incumbent prime minister

had the advantage because
Netanyahu was likely to have

a coalition of 65
seats in his favor,

while Gantz was likely
to have 55 seats.

Though both frontrunners
initially claimed victory

Tuesday night, Gantz's party
conceded on Wednesday meaning

the win goes to Netanyahu.
The election was
complicated by the fact

that Prime Minister
Netanyahu may

be facing corruption charges.
He denies doing anything wrong,
but the nation's Supreme Court

is considering whether he can
continue in office if he is

formally accused of corruption.
10 Second Trivia.
The theoretical boundary
that surrounds a black hole

is known as what?
Solaris, Ephemeris, event
horizon, or binary star?

The point of no
return from which

no radiation or light can escape
is called the event horizon.

Researchers with the
National Science Foundation,

a US government agency, say
a supermassive black hole

is more than a Muse song.
They say they captured
a picture of one

and that this is the first
direct visual evidence

that black holes exist.
Some physicists have
argued that they don't.

In theory, a black
hole is a body

whose gravity is
so intense that not

even light can escape from it.
To capture what they
say is an image of one,

scientists synced up a global
network of telescopes in 2017,

and they all zoomed in
on a spot in the universe

that's estimated
to be 55 million

light years away from Earth.
It took two years for
them to combine the data

and produce this picture.
What they call the
M87 black hole is

the shadow in the middle, and
they say the orange glow around

it is the material that's
creating the event horizon.

The director of the
National Science Foundation

says pictures like
this help scientists

understand the
mysteries of black holes

and reveal the complexities
of the universe.

Their investigation
of M87 continues.

Just as Albert Dros's own
investigation of the sky does.

He's a Dutch photographer
who shoots the stars

and the landscapes around him.
His images regularly
appear in publications

like National Geographic.
And several cameras,
including some of CNN's own,

accompanied Dros on a
recent trip to Kyrgyzstan.

This is a country
in Central Asia.

It's described by the
CIA World Factbook

as a land of incredible
natural beauty

and proud nomadic traditions.
Dros's trip proves that
one frame at a time.

Landscape photography

is really my passion.
So this trip is
very unique for me

because I'm exploring places
that I have never been to,

but in some places, no
one has ever been to.

I'm Albert Dros.
I'm a professional
landscape photographer

from the Netherlands.
I organize a lot of photography
workshops and photo tours.

I sell prints.
I write for some magazines.
I write for photography blogs.
So through the whole
year, I'm working a lot.

But I also think it's very
important to keep innovating.

Visit a new country.
Try to plan a crazy shot.
I just want to keep
challenging myself.

My girlfriend is
from Kyrgyzstan,

and I met her in Amsterdam.
And before I met her,
actually, I had almost

never heard of this country.
When I was doing
some research online.

I was really drawn.
I wanted to explore it.
In Kyrgyzstan, you
drive through areas

with very interesting canyons.
You come to really empty plains
where only some shepherds live.

You know, I wanted to see places
that almost no one has been to.

And here I also marked
some spots, like right

next to the road, you see?
So I can lift a drone here--
- So it's actually very
close to each other.

know, when I checked

this, I didn't know that this
part, if it's a road or a ridge

- It's a river, actually.
ALBERT DROS: A river, yeah.
And you can drive there.
I picked this
timing for this trip

specifically to shoot some
stars and Milky Way shots.

So during the day, we
usually scout around,

do some shots with the drone.
I use Google Earth but also
planning apps for my phone

and for the computer.
Milky Way, 3 o'clock,
this direction.

During the night, I will then
go there to photograph them.

The fun thing, and also
the challenging thing

about these shots, is
that we plan them together

and we execute them
during the night.

It's pitch black, and it's
around minus 10 degrees.

It's a bit difficult
in the beginning

when you have to
wake up at 3 or 4 AM.

But once you're out there,
it's just beautiful.

Then if you would stand
here, then it's also nice.

Yes, like this.
Yeah, good.
In these canyons, there's a
lot of interesting structures.

And you can really
play with light.

We're using [INAUDIBLE] headlamp
to light up this rock, which

we actually called the iceberg.
And it gives a really
magical effect.

It looks really like a
science fiction poster.

We also brought an old oil lamp
that we would use to light up

a scene, and it
gets a very nice,

soft light result in the frame.
These sceneries, they
offer so much possibilities

for night shootings.
But the end result is not
only the picture you see.

It's the whole experience that
we had taking this picture.

So in this country, you can
really find beauty anywhere.

When we're driving around,
I look out the window

and often I just see scenes.
I saw this really beautiful
tree against this huge mountain

backdrop, and there were
some horses walking around.

We also visit a water
reservoir, a big lake,

which was partly frozen.
I could fly the drone
and see top down.

A very interesting contrast
between the landscapes.

Amazing textures from the sky.
And it's very easy,
here in Kyrgyzstan,

on most of the
roads you can just

stop, get out, take the shot.
Scenes like this, they
are totally unplanned.

Sometimes you will get
great shots just from that.

Through my images, especially
from a place like this that not

that many people
have seen, I want

to show how beautiful
these places are

and that it's definitely
worth the visit.

The hospitality
everywhere is very good.

And the locals here in general,
it's like you go back in time.

They live in the mountains.
It's beautiful
nature around them.

It's very interesting to
see how these people live.

What impressed me
the most was really

that you have all these
different kind of landscapes

just in one place.
Canyons, like in Utah.
The mountains that
we have in Europe.

Peaks that you see
in the Himalaya.

It's very inviting
for me as a landscape

photographer to go
out there and explore

the beauty of the country.
land and sky to sea,

the Mediterranean Sea, where
a Turkish underwater research

team found a shipwreck
believed to be 3,600 years old.

They think it was a merchant
ship loaded with blocks

of copper and that
it sank in a storm

while traveling to
the island of Crete

or possibly somewhere
in the Aegean Sea.

Turkish media say this
could be the oldest

shipwreck ever discovered.
Some called the
finding a breakthrough

in underwater archeology.
Which sounds archeological,
the rutterly amazing

find means a boom and
a splash, generating

a lot of hullabaloo and
making researchers keel

over with excitement.
It's jibs the thing to rope
into our show before we

port ways for the day.
But we'll have oar to
tiller you about tomorrow,

so we hope you'll head
sail back our way.

For "CNN 10," I'm Carl Azuz.
