Great excitement in the scientific community as the first ever Black Hole image is released

Michael McLaren

An incredible achievement occurred in the last 24 hours that’s been described as ‘seeing the un-seeable’, because until now every image of a black hole that we have ever seen has simply been an artist’s impression.

Now, because of the work of a very dedicated team of scientists, and the Event Horizon Telescope, we now know exactly what a black hole looks like which has generated great excitement for the scientific community as it opens up all sorts of new avenues of research & information.

To learn more, Michael turns to Renee Spiewak, a PhD candidate at Swinburne University, who studies neutron stars and uses them to detect binary super-massive black holes.
