Calling Imaginary Physicists...

I am hoping that, among the masses of imaginary readers who flock to this blog each day, there is at least one physicist who can explain this image of two black holes.

Notice that I did not call it a "photo", because that would imply an image rendered from photons, or light particles, and all imaginary readers know that the gravitational pull of a black hole is so strong that not even light can escape.

Apparently however, particles from the infra-red end of the spectrum did escape, because NASA created this image from such particles.  My question is "how can this be"?
