Scientists have unveiled the landmark first image of a black hole from the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) programme in a bid to test Albert Einstein’s theory of general relativity.

The project, which relied on data from a global network of telescopes, targeted two supermassive black holes at the centre of different galaxies.

Before unveiling the picture, the European commissioner for research, Carlos Moedas, said we are about to experience a first for humanity.

He said: “The history of man and of science will be divided into the time before the image and the time after the image.”
