Tuesday, April 30 | 2-3 p.m. | JFK Library Auditorium, Cheney campus

• Presented by Dr. David Syphers, Assistant Professor of Physics at EWU

This month the first picture ever taken of a black hole was released by the Event Horizon Telescope team. Come learn what a black hole is, and why astronomers were so excited about seeing a fuzzy ring of light around a dark shadow. Hear about the technological achievement of capturing the sharpest picture ever taken, why it still looks so blurry, and what these results can tell us about the nature of our universe.

Persons needing accommodation should contact EWU Physics at 509.359.2447 or mcox@ewu.edu at least five (5) days prior to the event.
