Scientists have obtained the first image of a black hole, using Event

Horizon Telescope observations of the center of the galaxy M87. The image

shows a bright ring formed as light bends in the intense gravity around a

black hole that is 6.5 billion times more massive than the Sun. This

long-sought image provides the strongest evidence to date for the existence

of supermassive black holes and opens a new window onto the study of black

holes, their event horizons, and gravity. Credit: Event Horizon Telescope
