You may have seen the image above floating around recently. On first glance, you might have thought it was a smudge on your screen, or an image that wouldn’t fully load. While the photo may look unassuming, it is one of the most remarkable scientific feats of our generation. What you see is an image that many believed to be impossible to produce – a supermassive black hole. It represents the culmination of decades of scientific aspirations and years of collaboration among more than 200 international scientists working on the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT). Since Einstein turned physics on its...

All this dreaming sometimes makes me overlook...
