Watch the reveal of the Event Horizon Telescope’s Milky Way discovery online

The Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) has spotted something incredible in the Milky Way galaxy, which its team calls “groundbreaking”. But what exactly this discovery is, we won’t know until Thursday (May 12).

The Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) team teased the discovery online, but the full announcement will take place during a series of press conferences at 9 a.m. EDT (1300 GMT) hosted by institutions around the world. The Milky Way Discovery events will also be streamed online for public viewing. After the press conferences, the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the European Southern Observatory (ESO) will host independent Q&A panels that will also be streamed online.
