How many scientists did it take to capture the first image of a black hole? More than 200. ECE student Arash Roshanineshat, who spends many of his nights stargazing⭐️ at , was one of them. 📸⚫️ >>

Parts of the EHT team shares their journey of taking the first image ever of a black hole. Truly amazing!

makes me curious about what is going on inside the shadowy place at the center. If spacetime is getting crushed inside the shadow then maybe this information causes space to expand somewhere else. SMB's could be causing the acceleration of expansion in spacetime.

I’m here at the Science Center for a CfA colloquium by Director Shep Doeleman. Apparently they announced some results recently.

Morning! I'll be tweeting intermittently from the meeting this week. Lots of excitement here but other fun gravitational topics too.

Doeleman is pointing out the great weather they got for their 2017 observing run. Astronomy relies on luck sometimes for speedy results.

Katie Bouman (from that viral picture) lays it out for Congress: "No one algorithm or person made this image...like black holes, many early career scientists with remarkable contributions often go unseen."

Katie Bouman is testifying to about how the created a full image from incomplete data. Before the April 10th announcement, the team came up with this analogy. If you lived through the '80s, it's even better.

Geoff Bower shows a flowchart of all the steps that went into making and analyzing the image. There's a lot of them. "This is to my knowledge the most thoroughly vetted interferometric image ever made...This sequence is really important for validating what we found"
