One of the strangest things that exist in space is the black hole. Every scientist has thought of how it works. They describe it as something that exists in space, but no one has truly seen or experienced what a black hole is like.

In fact, whenever one reads about the black hole, it is described as something that is super dense nothing could escape its gravitational pull. And while astronomers know that these black holes exist, no one has really taken a picture of it and showed it to the world. Isn't it weird that something in space can exist -- you can experience it but not really see it?

When it comes to taking a picture of the black hole, it is not really the lack of capacity to make it happen. Rather, it is more of the distance in space that makes it seemingly impossible. The nearest black hole to Earth is said to be located in the middle of the Milky Way Galaxy. That would mean a really long stretch of a modern telescope to make it happen. There are a number of smaller black holes near the earth, but even they are hard to spot.

However, this does not stop scientists from further exploring what can be done to take home a picture of a black hole that exists in space. Using a planet-wide imagine technology they have specifically designed to spot all the smaller black holes near the Earth's atmosphere, they are planning to reveal something truly special.

What is believed to be the images of a black hole takes a huge deal? In fact, it is considered so big that six media conferences were set up in six different countries around the world were planned to help show the results of their extensive research and to reveal the most sought after images of a real black hole. Belgium, Tokyo and Washington DC are just three of the cities where the press conferences will be held. They have prepared an "extensive audiovisual presentation" that they plan to release simultaneously in various countries all over the world.

The Event Horizon Telescope is a group of telescopes around the world is the one responsible for making this happen. The idea was to combine various images collected from telescopes that have been set-up in various parts of the planet to create what scientists refer to as the Earth-like size of a telescope. These telescopes are so advanced that they are capable of peering far deeper into the solar system.

The research has been ongoing for the last decade, but the telescope only seems to gain more power over the years. And the more that it becomes capable of capturing images of the space, the more likely that it will be able to take an image of a black hole.

Who isn't excited to see the first image of a real black hole? Practically everyone who has heard of how powerful this existing phenomenon is in space would be curious how it actually looks. When the large team of astronomers is ready to show us their images of it, we'll just have to wait and see.
