A team of 200 pioneering scientists from across the globe is preparing to push the limits of scientific achievement and attempt to answer two key questions: is it possible to photograph a black hole and, if so, was Einstein right?

来自世界各地的200名先驱科学家组成的团队正准备突破科学成就的极限,并试图回答两个关键问题:是否有可能拍摄到黑洞,如果有可能,爱因斯坦是否是对的?

The Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) is comprised of dozens of observatories that scan the area around the supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy, named Sagittarius A*, to piece together a silhouette of the black behemoth and provide humanity with its first-ever glimpse of a real black hole (as opposed to an artist’s rendering).

事件地平线望远镜(EHT)由数十个天文台组成,它们扫描了银河系中心的被称为人马座A*逮到超大质量黑洞周围的区域来拼凑出一个黑色庞然大物的轮廓,并能让人类首次看到一个真正的黑洞(而不是通过艺术家的渲染)。

The “groundbreaking result from the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) project,” will be delivered in an announcement by the US National Science Foundation on Wednesday, April 10, at 9am EDT (13:00 GMT). Concurrent announcements will be made in Tokyo, Brussels, Taipei, Santiago, and Shanghai.

“事件视界望远镜(EHT)项目”的开创性成果将在美国国家科学基金会星期三(4月10日)上午9点(格林威治时间13:00)发布。同时将在东京、布鲁塞尔、台北、圣地亚哥和上海发布公告。



The astronomers are attempting to capture the silhouette of the black hole against this bright background provided by the swirl of gas, plasma, and other materials are that are falling inexorably into the abyss. The coordinated observations were also made in X- and Gamma-rays.

天文学家们正试图捕捉黑洞的轮廓,并在X射线和伽马射线中也进行了协调观测。在这个由气体、等离子体和其他物质的漩涡所提供的明亮的背景下,这些物质正无情地掉入深渊。
