35: THAT Black Hole Image

We took an image of a Black Hole!

OK, we know, we know — we're a little late to the party. But we go in deep on this acclaimed image from the Event Horizon Telescope collaboration, to find out what this weird donut thing is all about, why it's NOT an image of the supermassive black hole at the centre of our own galaxy as was widely expected, why the donut seems a bit lopsided, and conclude that this is indeed a first-class addition to the long list of truly iconic astronomical imagery.
