The first pictures of a black hole will be revealed on Wednesday, April 10.

On Wednesday, April 10, “scientists will unveil humanity’s first-ever photo of a black hole” at several briefings that will be held in; the U.S, Brussels, Santiago, Shanghai, Taipei and Tokyo, according to USA Today. ‘A black hole is a place in space where gravity pulls so much that even light can not get out’ and can’t be seen directly, as explained by NASA.

“They have always aspired to image a black hole ‘shadow,’ and the best bet is that they have accomplished this feat,” Roger Blandford, a Stanford University astrophysicist who is not part of the EHT collaboration, told NBC News MACH in an email. “You can think of a black hole as being like a hand lens on which you have painted a black disk. What you see depends upon what is shining behind and around it.”
