Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory partners with National Society of Black Physicists to launch annual research internship and recruitment opportunity. Now the collaboration has extracted new information from the EHT data on the distant quasar 3C they observed the finest detail ever seen in a jet produced by a supermassive black hole. The Event Horizon Telescope Collaboration had been awarded a number of prestigious awards and titles for its ground-breaking results in making the first-ever image of a black hole in the galaxy M The discovery was announced one year ago , and has been considered as one of the most interesting science stories of We are deeply The global array of telescopes connected into the Event Horizon Telescope EHT was due to start observations at the end of March in order to expand and enhance the first set of results published approximately one year ago, including the first-ever image of a black hole in the galaxy M Regrettably, several participating The ngEHT will sharpen our focus on black holes, and let researchers move from still-imagery to real-time videos of space-time at the event horizon.
The new award is aimed at solving the formidable technical and algorithmic challenges required to The Event Horizon Telescope is a global network of synchronized radio observatories that work in unison to observe radio sources associated with black holes with angular resolution comparable to their event horizons. The required extreme resolving power makes scientists and engineers go to some of the most extreme environments on the Earth to collect data.

EHT News Blog An international team anchored by the Event Horizon Telescope EHT Collaboration, which is known for capturing the first image of a black hole in the galaxy Messier 87, has now imaged the heart of the nearby radio galaxy Centaurus A in unprecedented detail.
Scientists have obtained the first image of a black hole, using Event Horizon Telescope EHT on Twitter ehtelescope. Follow the EHT on Twitter! EHT In the Media. Supermassive black holes are among the most powerful sources of radio waves in the universe. The diameter of the telescope, in turn, limits its resolution.
The astronomers, however, found a way to integrate antennas in nine European countries, which enabled them to increase the diameter to 1, miles 2, km and achieve 20 times better resolution. Observations made by the individual antennas were digitized and combined into the final high-resolution images. But that was no easy feat. The scientists had to process 1. Morabito added that it would take 3, observations to image the entire northern sky.
The images and the scientific papers they spawned were published in a special edition of the journal Astronomy and Astrophysics on Tuesday Aug Follow us on Twitter Spacedotcom and on Facebook.
