Will we see the first-historically speaking direct image of a black hole?
|EHT Press Conference|
The Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) project is unveiling a major black hole discovery Wednesday morning (April 10), and you can watch the event on sciencenews18 home page.
The EHT, a global effort to capture the first-historically photograph of a black hole’s immediate environment, will announce its first results during a press conference Wednesday at 9 a.m. EDT (1300 GMT [Greenwich Mean Time Zone]). You can watch it live here at sciencenews18 home page, courtesy of the U.S. National Science Foundation or the called NSF.
EHT team members haven’t revealed what the result is, but an NSF (national science foundation).media advisory described it as “groundbreaking.” So it’s not outlandish to speculate that the project may have succeeded in its chief goal and that we may be treated to a spectacular image of a black hole’s silhouette.

Photographing the interior of a black hole is impossible, of course: Any light that strays excessively close to one of these gravitational monsters is lost forever. (This final turning point is known as the event horizon, which explains the project’s name.)
- The accompanying EHT colleagues will likewise talk:
- Project director Sheperd Doeleman, of Harvard University at Cambridge, USA and the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics;
- Daniel Marrone – University of Arizona;
- Avery E. Broderick – the University of Waterloo and the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics;
- Sera Markoff – University of Amsterdam
The EHT links multiple radio telescopes around the world, forming a virtual scope the size of Earth. The project has been peering at two supermassive black holes — the one at the heart of our own Milky Way galaxy, and the one at the core of the galaxy M87.
The new results are based on EHT’s first observing run, which occurred through the span of multi-week in April 2017.
