On Wednesday, April 10, the image of the supermassive black hole in the center of the Messier 87 galaxy made by the scientific team of the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) was made public.

M87 is a massive galaxy in the nearby Virgo galaxy cluster, this black hole resides 55 million light-years from Earth and has a mass 6.5 billion times that of the Sun. The EHT is a virtual telescope combining observations made by eight radio telescopes distributed around the world using the interferometry technique to obtain images that could only be obtained with a Earth-sized radio telescope. The antennas coordinated are located in the United States, Mexico, Chile, Spain and Antarctica.
