We are about to view the shadow of the black hole at the centre of the Milky Way for the first time in history. The Event Horizon collab submitted the paper for peer-review, and now are ready to present the results to the public. A conference scheduled for Wednesday will finally reveal whether the strong field regime matches the predictions of general relativity. Exciting times ahead. The Black hole that we have in our home page is one of several models of wut a black hole should look like.
