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

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

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