Feryal Özel, the only Turkish scientist among the 200 scientists working in the Event Horizon Telescope Project, will give her lecture about the first black hole photograph of the history, “Powehi”, at Albert Long Hall, in Boğaziçi University, on November 7th, at 5 pm.
The content of the lecture:
The Event Horizon Telescope recently obtained the first ever image of a black hole. This supermassive source resides in the heart of the M87 galaxy. What did it take to make this image? Was it difficult to interpret the data? How can we see a black hole? I will describe the telescopes, the experiment, and the methods used to obtain the black hole image. I will also discuss what we learned from this first result about black holes and about Einstein's theory of General Relativity.
