The Titanium Physicists Podcast

Adal Rifai from "Hello From the Magic Tavern" joins us to talk about the first PHOTOGRAPH of a black hole by the Event Horizon Telescope. 

Our guide through this amazing story are Dr. Leo Stein and Dr. Katie Bouman. 

We learn the basics of Black holes, and the interferometry performed by the Event Horizon Telescope, and then about the complicated image processing which needed to be done to interpret all of that amazing, messy data!
