The first imaging of a black hole shadow with the Event Horizon Telescope
本間 希樹 （Mareki HONMA）
In April 2019, the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) collaboration has released the first-ever image of a shadow of a super-massive black hole, which is located at the center of M87. The image clearly detected a ring-like structure corresponding to photon sphere surrounding a black hole with central depression of emission, which is the shadow of a black hole.
In this talk, I will briefly introduce the EHT project and then describe the details of observations and results, and will also discuss the future of super-massive black hole study with event-horizon-scale imaging.
