Black holes are cosmic objects so compact that not even light can escape their gravity. Until recently, no one had ever seen what a black hole really looked like. Using a network of radio telescopes, a research team has imaged a black hole. The Ångström lecture will describe how this was achieved and tell about plans that enable real-time films of black holes.

You will be put in waiting room and admitted to the meeting at 15:15
