April 3:: Astronomers will be holding six individual press conferences to present the research in multiple countries around the world, from Belgium to Tokyo to Washington D.C., and “extensive supporting audiovisual material” will be released at the same time.
“Belgium (Brussels, English), Chile (Santiago, Spanish), Shanghai (Mandarin), Japan (Tokyo, Japanese), Taipei (Mandarin), and USA (Washington, D.C., English),”All conferences will begin at the same time
The European Southern observatory revealed that there is a big Announcement on next week
Well the world eagerly waiting for this time to see the The First Ever Image of a Black hole’s Event horizon.
Black hole first picture 2019
The Event Horizon Telescope is an international collaboration aiming to capture the first image of a black hole by creating a virtual Earth-sized telescope.
For many years, the Event Horizon Telescope has been looking into the heart of the Milky Way
They are trying to obtain a photo of the location of Sagittarius A*, our galaxy’s central supermassive black hole.
Black hole’s are very special in our universe literally they are invisible they absorb all electromagnetic radiation
It means none of our telescopes – radio, X-ray, optical, gamma-ray – can detect them.
That’s why we’ve never actually seen one.

Here is the Live🔴 :: The First Ever Image of a Black hole
How scientists captured Black hole data?
Astronomers began speculating about these omnivorous “dark stars” in the 1700s, and since then indirect evidence has slowly accumulated.
“More than 50 years ago, scientists saw that there was something very bright at the centre of our galaxy,” Paul McNamara, an astrophysicist at the European Space Agency and an expert on black holes, told AFP.
“It has a gravitational pull strong enough to make stars orbit around it very quickly—as fast as 20 years.”
To put that in perspective, our Solar System takes about 230 million years to circle the centre of the Milky Way.
The Event Horizon Telescope, a network of eight radio observatories settled around the globe, has set its sights on a pair of behemoths: Sagittarius A*
The supermassive black hole at the Milky Way’s centre.
In April 2017, the observatories teamed up to observe the black holes’ event horizons, the boundary beyond which gravity is so extreme that even light can’t escape
After almost two years of rendering the data, scientists are gearing up to release the first images in April 10th.
The EHT’s image of the Milky Way’s Sagittarius A, also called SgrA,
They expected to capture the black hole’s shadow on its accompanying disk of bright material.
Computer simulations and the laws of gravitational physics give astronomers a pretty good idea of what to expect.
Because of the intense gravity near a black hole, the disk’s light will be warped around the event horizon in a ring, so even the material behind the black hole will be visible.
And the image will probably look asymmetrical:
Gravity will bend light from the inner part of the disk toward Earth more strongly than the outer part, making one side appear brighter in a lopsided ring
we’ll almost certainly be seeing something no human has ever seen before😍
