Press Release, Media and Outreach (International)

You can find many articles and outreach materials related to my project, the Event Horizon Telescope. The good starting place is the EHT website. I provided comments or scientific figures to media, SNS, . Here are some of international articles, blog posts and movies that I was involved. You can find many Japanese domestic ones in the Japanese version of this page.

2018 Dec Media "Why Don’t We Have a Photo of a Black Hole Yet?", Seeker
2017 April Outreach "Taking the First Picture of a Black Hole", ESO outreach
