How they captured the first black hole photo

Yesterday astronomers unveiled an image of something that for years was considered unseeable. They revealed the first-ever direct image of a black hole. A region in spacetime with such strong gravitational pull that nothing, not even light, can escape from it. In this episode we will look at how scientists managed to capture the image, how it aligns with the theory of general relativity and why it is a big deal. Amitabh Sinha, our resident editor in Pune who writes on issues related to science, environment and space, joins us for this episode.
