At the project’s core, its 200 scientists want to answer two. questions, according to Psaltis, an astronomer and physicist at the University of Arizona. EHT Black Hole 2019. The first is simply if photographing a black hole is possible. But the second important thing they ask is if Einstein was 100 percent right about how black holes behave.

Einstein told us 100 years ago exactly what the size and the shape of that [black hole’s] shadow should be. If we could lay a ruler across that shadow, we’d be able to test Einstein’s theory of the black hole boundary, Doeleman said. The team also wanted to build models that would describe black holes in various circumstances, which will then be compared to EHT observations. EHT Black Hole 2019. This infographic shows a simulation of the outflow bright red from a black hole and the accretion disk around it, with simulated images of the three potential shapes of the event horizon’s shadow. On Wednesday 10 April 2019, the Event Horizon Telescope collaboration will release their first-ever image of such an event horizon. Here’s what we know right now, on the eve of this monumental discovery. The black hole at the center of the Milky Way, along with the actual, physical size of the Event Horizon pictured in white.
