Icon102 Photographing a black hole: Historic campaign is underway

The campaign to capture the first-ever image of a black hole has begun.

From Wednesday Apr. 5 through Friday Apr. 14, astronomers will use a system of radio telescopes around the world to peer at the gigantic black hole at the center of the Milky Way, a behemoth called Sagittarius A* (Sgr A*) that’s 4 million times more massive than the sun.
