NASA discovers Saturn’s moons are caked in ring dust” data-reactid=”19″ type=”text”>NASA discovers Saturn’s moons are caked in ring dustHubble discovers a mysterious dark spot on Neptune, and it’s getting biggerJust guess how much the Milky Way weighsNow, researchers using a novel planet-wide imaging technique designed specifically to spot closer black holes are planning to make a major announcement, and there’s really only one thing it could be.The announcement, which we believe will be the release of the first-ever images of an actual black hole, is an incredibly big deal. It’s so big, in fact, that astronomers will be holding six individual press conferences to present the research in multiple countries around the world, from Belgium to Tokyo to Washington D.C., and “extensive supporting audiovisual material” will be released at the same time.The work was made possible by a network of telescopes around the world that collectively make up what is called the Event Horizon Telescope. The idea is that by combining the power of telescope positioned at different places on the planet, the team creates what is basically a virtual “Earth-sized” telescope capable of peering far deeper into the solar system than ever before.The research has been ongoing for over a decade, but as the telescope gains power it is capable of more advanced imaging, and it seems it’s reached a point where capturing images of a black hole is possible.If the large astronomy team behind the work is indeed prepared to show us a real black hole for the first time it’ll be an incredible day, and we can’t wait to see it.Sign up for BGR’s Newsletter.
