Touchè 😉

I’m more impressed with how they got the image than the image itself. The word “collaboration” gets thrown around a lot, but in this case, in order accomplish anything, “collaboration” was inherent.

The press conference is on YouTube and they explain everything rather well. I’m curious how well this was covered on broadcast news in other places around the world.

that picture is not actually "taken" its "made" through programs algorithms based on some waves or something.

I think the image is accurate (though not a photograph) but what the image represents is for the astrophysicists. That must be a lonely job...
