The Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) project is a very-long-baseline interferometry experiment to observe supermassive black holes at the highest resolution ever achieved, combining a network of radio telescopes around the world. Recently, the EHT announced its first results: imaging the nuclear black hole in the galaxy M87.
