The inside of black holes is shielded from observations by an event horizon, a virtual one-way membrane through which matter, light and information can enter but never leave.
The event horizon
Does such an event horizon really exist? Can one see it? In 2019 the Event Horizon Telescope made the first ever image of a black hole. The speaker was one of the pioneers of this experiment and the talk will review the results of the Event Horizon Telescope, its scientific implications, and future developments.
Speaker: Prof. Heino Falcke (Radboud University, NL)
