In 2017, humanity, for the first time, peered into true darkness. Black holes are objects defined by their immense gravitational fields, so large that not even light can escape. In this talk, I will take you on the journey undertaken by a worldwide collaboration to image a black hole for the first time and tell you about the discoveries awaiting the coming generations.

This talk will be live in ROOMS 170 & 182 Weiser Hall. You can also watch the talk/Q&A, live, on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gpMfqdRwMkU
