The EHT Collaboration unveils the first image of the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way.
An international team of astronomers has unveiled the first image of the supermassive black hole at the center of our own galaxy, the Milky Way. This result provides overwhelming evidence that the object is indeed a black hole and yields valuable clues about the workings of such giants, which are thought to reside at the center of most galaxies. The image was produced by a global research team called the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) Collaboration, using observations from a worldwide network of radio telescopes, including the Large Millimeter Telescope Alfonso Serrano.
