Tomorrow We May See What A Black Hole’s Event Horizon Looks Like

Tomorrow, April 10, the Event Horizon Telescope project plans to release the results of obsverations by the world’s biggest telescope, potentially showing us, for the first time ever, what the region surrounding a Black Hole looks like.

The event will be streamed live from the Washington Press Club at 9 am EDT.

The EHT project harnessed radio telescopes from around the world to create (digitally) the world’s largest aperature telescope.  This arrangement was used to take observations of Sagittarius A*, the black hole at the center of the Milky Way Galaxy, as well as the “monster” black hole at the center of M87, a giant elliptical galaxy some 53.5 million light years from Earth.

No matter is revealed, it’s something we’ll all be seeing for the first time.
