Black hole BREAKTHROUGH: Event Horizon Telescope to reveal ‘FIRST RESULT’

ESO Planning Huge Announcement Around Event Horizon Telescope's 'Groundbreaking' Results: Black Hole Picture? 'Groundbreaking Result' Coming from Black-Hole Hunting Event Horizon Telescope Next Week

It is believed that black holes have a mass of an estimated 4 million suns and can bend the fabric of space time.

(Black holes are actually collapsed stars, with gravity so strong that even light can not escape their grasp.) So the photo may show a dark blob surrounded by a ring of bright light, according to Yahoo.

Since it has been launched, the Event Horizon Telescope has been struggling to pinpoint Sagittarius A which is the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way Galaxy. The speakers at these various events include some heavy hitters, such as Carlos Moedas, the European commissioner for research, science and innovation; James Liao, president of the Academia Sinica; European Southern Observatory Director General Xavier Barcons; and Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array Director Sean Dougherty.

The European Southern Observatory (ESO) has recently announced that the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) project has just made a groundbreaking black hole discovery. That result is widely anticipated to be the first-ever photo of a black hole, though curiosity has been piqued as to what exactly that picture will entail.

Even that will be challenging, however, as the black hole at the centre of our galaxy is "shrouded in a thick cloud of dust and gas", according to Science Alert.

So while we can understand black holes by proxy, because of the way they affect the space that surrounds them, they cannot be directly seen.

Now astronomers are teasing the "groundbreaking" and incredibly important new breakthrough in that project, suggesting the project might finally be complete.

The main press conference will take place on 10 April, in Brussels, at 3pm local central European time.

The press conference will be streamed online by the ESO and the European Research Council, and will be available on YouTube as well, the newspaper added.

The ESO said that, "due to the importance of this result", it was encouraging satellite events around the world where people can get together to watch along.
