After snapping a photo of the Milky Way’s monster black hole, scientists dream of videos

Fresh off revealing its first image of the black hole at the center of our galaxy, the Event Horizon Telescope is ready to take its next steps by capturing movies of gas flowing turbulently onto a black hole.

The two black hole images the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) has produced so far — that of Sagittarius A* in the Milky Way and that of the black hole at the center of the galaxy M87 — are snapshots in time. Black holes are constantly churning as gas orbits around it surface, or event horizon, but still images don’t really show this churn.
