Science Highlights - ALMA & APEX's crucial contribution to the EHT

May 22, 2019 04:48 PM



The Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) produced the first image of a black hole, in the centre of the galaxy M87. The image here shows the contribution of ALMA and APEX to the EHT. The left hand image shows a reconstruction of the black hole image using the full array of the Event Horizon Telescope (including ALMA and APEX); the right-hand image shows what the reconstruction would look like without data from ALMA and APEX. The difference clearly shows the crucial role that ALMA and APEX played in the observations.
