How do you take a picture of complete darkness?

Thursday, April 6th, 2017

Most of us know what a black hole is, at least from a cosmological perspective but none of us have seen what one really looks like. All we've had so far have been artist renditions.

This is about to change as scientists have started to point an array of radio telescopes towards the black hole at the center of our galaxy. It won't be recording in the visible spectrum but should gather enough data to extrapolate what it looks like in the visible spectrum once all the data has been crunched. The article doesn't specify numbers but the idea that the gathered data is going to be so big that they will have to do a physical transport of it to where it will be processed (as opposed to transfer it over the internet) is mind boggling.
