People have speculated as to what black holes looks like since the 1700s and this week we may finally get an accurate depiction. As the New York Times explained, astronomers who have created a global network of radio telescopes called the Event Horizon Telescope are expected to release images of this elusive and inscrutable astronomical object on Wednesday morning. Such images would represent not only a major scientific accomplishment but also an opportunity to rethink the cosmos and our place in it. We’ll be sure to include a link to the images later in the week but be sure to check Event Horizon’s site on Wednesday.
