Using the Event Horizon Telescope, researchers are hoping to take a picture of Sagittarius A*, a huge black hole at the centre of our galaxy. Albeit the black hole has never been directly observed, researchers know it is there by the way it is impacting the orbit of near-by stars.
So what can we expect to see if the project is successful?
The researchers predict the black hole will look like bright ring of light around a dark blob.
The light is being emitted by gas and dust particles that are accelerated to high speeds just before they're ripped apart and consumed by the black hole. The dark blob would be the shadow cast over that chaos.
