|Date||9 October 2019|
|Time||11:00 - 12:00|
The Event Horizon Telescope recently imaged the supermassive black hole in the center of the M87 galaxy. I will describe the experiment and the methods used to obtain the image. I will also discuss the implications of this measurement for the properties of the black hole and the theory of General Relativity.
