European Infrastructures in the Event Horizon Telescope

The Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) — a planet-scale array of eight ground-based radio telescopes forged through international collaboration — was designed to capture images of a black hole. In coordinated press conferences across the globe, EHT researchers revealed that they succeeded, unveiling the first direct visual evidence of a supermassive black hole and its shadow.

This video highlights the European contributions to this project, ranging from infrastructures such as ALMA, APEX, and the IRAM 30-meter Telescope to funding from ESO.
