Teaser for the fulldome show Black Hole First Picture

Black Hole First Picture is a fulldome planetarium film produced by Evans & Sutherland in partnership with Radboud University and ESO features the human attempt to create the very first picture of a black hole with the Event Horizon Telescope. The Event Horizon Telescope consists of a network of 8 Radio telescopes at 6 remote locations in the world ranging from Europe, North and South America, Hawaii to Antarctica. For years, the Event Horizon Telescope has been staring into the hearts of the Milky Way and the galaxy Messier 87, trying to obtain a picture of the shadow of Sagittarius A*, our galaxy’s central supermassive black hole and the black hole M87*. A human story of two young astronomers is central in this film. They travel to remote locations to take part in this historic scientific mission to produce the first photo of a black hole.
