SUPERMASSIVE BLACK HOLE: ‘We’re so close!’ Scientists on brink of EXTRAORDINARY discovery
The mystery surrounding the black hole may finally be revealed as space boffins will attempt to zoom in on the edges of the celestial phenomenon for the first time.
The Event Horizon Telescope will be used to try and gain some insight into the black hole in the middle of our solar system, the Milky Way.
Named Sagittarius A* (Sgr A*), it is four million times bigger than our Sun.
Scientists are attempting to examine the boundary at which gravity’s pull become so strong nothing, including light, can escape its clutches.
