    On 10 April 2019 at 15:00 CEST (Brussels time) the European Commission presented a ground-breaking discovery by Event Horizon Telescope - an international scientific collaboration aiming to capture the first image of a black hole by creating a virtual Earth-sized telescope. EU-funded researchers play a key role in the project.
    Black holes are extremely compressed cosmic objects, containing incredible amounts of mass within a tiny region. Their presence affects their surroundings in extreme ways, by warping spacetime and super-heating any material falling into it. The captured image reveals the black hole at the centre of Messier 87, a massive galaxy in the constellation of Virgo. This black hole is located 55 million light-years from Earth and has a mass 6.5-billion times larger than our sun.
    Six press conferences around the world took place simultaneously. In Europe, Commissioner Moedas and lead scientists funded by the European Research Council held a press conference in Brussels to unveil the discovery.
    Panelists:
    - Carlos Moedas, European Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation
    - Prof. Anton Zensus, Director at Max-Planck-Institut für Radioastronomie, Bonn, Germany (Chair of the EHT Collaboration Board)
    - Prof. Heino Falcke, Radboud University, Nijmegen, The Netherlands (Chair of the EHT Science Council)
    - Dr Monika Mościbrodzka, Radboud University, Nijmegen, The Netherlands (EHT Working Group Coordinator)
    - Prof. Luciano Rezzolla, Goethe Universität, Frankfurt, Germany (EHT Board Member)
    - Prof. Eduardo Ros, Max-Planck-Institut für Radioastronomie, Bonn, Germany, (EHT Board Secretary)
