  • Black Hole Close-Up M87 is a giant elliptical galaxy about 55 million light-years away. Accretion of matter onto its central massive black hole is thought to power its relativistic jet. To probe structures on scales similar to that of the black hole's event horizon, Doeleman et al. (p. 355, published online 27 September) observed the relativistic jet in M87 at a wavelength of 1.3 mm using the Event Horizon Telescope, a special purpose, very-long-baseline interferometry array consisting of four… CONTINUE READING
