The Horizon Events Telescope Project (EHT) opens a serious black hole opening Wednesday morning (April 10), and you can watch the event live.
EHT, a global effort to capture the first ] A photo of the immediate black hole environment will announce the first results during a press conference on Wednesday at 9:00 am (GMT 13:00). You can view it live here, on the site Space.com lovedly provided by the National Science Foundation of the United States, or directly through NSF .
The members of the EHT team have not shown what the result is, but NSF Media Advisory has described it as "pioneering." Consequently, it is not surprising to speculate that the project can achieve its main goal, and that the impressive image of the black hole silhouette may be addressed to us.

It is impossible to photograph black hole interiors, of course: any light that is too close to one of these gravitational monsters is lost forever. [Ця точка не повертається, відома як горизонт подій, що пояснює назву проекту.]

EHT connects a multitude of radio telescopes around the world, forming a virtual area of the size of the Earth. The project studied two supermassive black holes – one that is in the center of our Milky Way galaxy and one that is in the center of the M87 galaxy.
New results are based on the first EHT tracking run that took place during the week of April 2017.
