Black holes the edge of all we know: “We want to take the first photo of a black hole, something that is struggling to remain hidden with all of its might,” says the team.
The latest trailer for the forthcoming documentary “Black Holes: The Edge of Everything We Know” — given exclusively to Space.com — begins with these words, spoken by Shep Doeleman, the founder of the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT).
The international EHT team succeeded in capturing a picture of the supermassive black hole at the centre of the galaxy M87, as we all know.When Doeleman and his colleagues published the epic picture in April 2019, it captivated the world, and it continues to do so today.
