Seeing the Unseeable: Capturing an Image of a Black Hole

April 18, 2020
From: 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM

Black holes are cosmic objects so small and dense that nothing, not even light, can escape their gravitational pull. In 2019, the Event Horizon Telescope captured a photograph of a black hole - a new milestone in scientific history. How was this accomplished? Come to the public lecture to learn the answers from Dr. Sheperd Doeleman, the director of the EHT project!
