Black Hole Research

Black Hole M87

The World's First Image of a Black Hole

What does a black hole look like? Nobody knows because they are... invisible - not even light can escape. But how do we know they exist when we can’t see the black hole or it's interior? To answer these questions astronomers have built a virtual telescope the size of the earth to image and took for first time in history image of the ‘shadow’ of a black hole.
