Imaging the Event Horizon of Black Holes (BLACKHOLECAM)

Start date: Oct 1, 2014, End date: Sep 30, 2020,

Gravity is successfully described by Einstein’s theory of general relativity (GR), governing the structure of our entire universe. Yet it remains the least understood of all forces in nature, resisting unification with quantum physics. One of the most fundamental predictions of GR are black holes (BHs). Their defining feature is the event horizon, the surface that light cannot escape and where tim ...
