In April 2019 it was expected that members of the partnership Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) reveal the first images of the appearance of ain this case that of the one in the heart of the Sagittarius A*, and that of the one in the heart of the M87. Only the image of the black hole M87* was finally presented because of that of the of our Galaxy had proved harder to come by. But the one from M87* already looked surprisingly similar to the one that was the first to calculate realistically with a late 1970s. About ten years later, his colleague got a more accurate version Jean-Alain Marck, unfortunately passed away too early.
A presentation of the success of theEvent Horizon Telescope when the collaboration it uses revealed the first image of a black hole on April 10, 2019, that of the supermassive hole at the heart of the elliptical galaxy M87, about 53 million light-years away from the Milky Way.

Jean-Pierre Luminet had explained in detail, in French and in English on thethat Futura has made available to it, the origin and characteristics of the images of black holes surrounded by a with a hot plasma you would expect to see. He also traced the history of the relativistic about it.
The event will be worldwide.
