Thursday, April 25, 2019 - 6:00 pm

More than 200 researchers and countless hours of data collection from telescopes across Earth have led to the first ever image of a black hole. What is the significance? How was this accomplished? Angelle Tanner, associate professor in Mississippi State's Department of Physics and Astronomy, will answer these and other questions in a brief overview of the study leading up to the image seen today. In addition to the College of Arts and Sciences' physics and astronomy department, this presentation is sponsored by the MSU Astronomy Club.
