Exciting scientific news: First ever picture of a Black Hole Horizon to be shown on April 10

The image on top shows you the Black Hole as seen in the movie Interstellar. But nobody yet has ever photographed a real Black Hole. While it would be impossible to see the black hole itself due to the fact that light simply cannot escape their gravitational pull and reach observers on Earth, scientists focused their efforts on procuring an image of its event horizon. And the Event Horizon Telescope is humanity first attempt to take a  close up picture of this phenomena.

They will publish this image on April 10. You can watch the livestream here: https://www.youtube.com/c/VideosatNSF/live
