Inside the black hole image that made history | Sheperd Doeleman
Length - 11:29
Key takeaways -
Black holes are incredibly difficult to image.
Shepherd uses telescopes from all over the world to detect light waves emitted from black holes.
The telescopes are synchronised using atomic clocks and once the light data is received, it is then stitched together to create an image.
Take a look at the image captured below, it was the first time in history an image of a black hole has been captured.
