    From that other thread:


    Gizmodo: These Are Not Photos of Black Holes

    Avery Broderick from the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Canada with the Event Horizon Telescope did make another simulation of what Sagittarius A* might look like at the end of all the number crunching.
