Astronomy Colloquium

Detecting the Shadow of the Black Hole in M87
Feryal Ozel, Professor of Astronomy, University of Arizona,

The Event Horizon Telescope recently imaged the super massive black hole in the center of the M87 galaxy. I will describe the experiment and the methods used to obtain this image. I will also discuss the implications of this measurement for the properties of the black hole and the theory of General Relativity.
