On the Horizon


On the Horizon

Imagine a time when light
comes out of darkness.

What to do with an event
of unimagined scope? How

to determine depth, when it cannot
be touched, only imagined?

Imagination is not a substitute
for facts. Each new event

offers further questions. Picture
a time when the truth is revealed.

There are answers on the horizon.

On 10 April 2019, the first ever image of a black hole was released by the Event Horizon Telescope project, a network of eight linked telescopes.

An excellent short video from the BBC is available here.
