Scientists are expected to unveil the first picture of a black hole this week.
If they do, then it will mark a major breakthrough in astrophysics and can provide new insight into huge astronomical monsters.
Here we are aware of the announcement

When will it be?

The US National Science Foundation says it will announce the event through the Horizon Telescope (EHT) project during a press conference "groundbreaking result".

This announcement is due on April 10 at 9:00 am (Washington Time), which will be held in Australia on Wednesday night.

News conference is also organized in Brussels, Santiago, Shanghai, Taipei and Tokyo.

What will unveil?

Scientists of the EHT project are keeping their findings tight, but it is widely expected that they will show at least one picture of black hole.

This project was created seven years ago with the purpose of looking at the immediate environment of a black hole.

"It is a visionary project to take the first picture of a black hole. In a program in March we were told by astrophysist Shepard Delayman," We are cooperating more than 200 people internationally.

To do this, scientists added a series of radio telescopes around the world to create "a virtual earth-sized telescope".

Researchers then targeted two super-black black holes.

The first - called Sagittarius A * - is located at a distance of 26,000 light years from Earth in the center of our Milky Way galaxy, and our Sun's mass is 4 million times.

A light year is the distance travel distance in a year: 9.5 trillion kilometers.

The second - called M87 - is 54 million light years away from the Earth, in the heart of the neighboring Virgo A galaxy, which has 3.5 billion times the Sun.

The first data was received in April 2017.

 What Might the Photos Show Us ?

Black holes form when very massive stars collapse at their life cycle.

They are extraordinarily dense entities and have gravitational fields so intense no matter can escape being sucked in, including stars, planets, gas, dust and light.

The fact that black holes do not allow light to escape makes them difficult.

So the scientists are looking for the ring of the black hole - the radiation and matter circling at the tremendous speed around the edge of the event horizon

How sharp will the images be ?

The scientists behind the EHT project said they would like to capture a razor-sharp image, but warned that it would not be easy.

The website of the project says, "The quality of images depends on the arrangement of the telescope array, the weather conditions on the telescope sites as well as the blurring of the pictures, because the light leads to the Earth from the black hole."

What can it mean for space science?

One of the pillars of research will be tested - According to the theory of general relativity of physicist Albert Einstein - Project Scientific for AHT Astronomer of the University of Arizona Dimitrios Sultalis.

That theory was put forward in 1915, whose purpose was to clarify their relationship with the rules of gravitation and other natural powers.

"[The shadow of the black hole] will be approximately one full circle in Einstein's theory," Dr. Psaltis said.

"If we find it different than the theory of prophecy, then we go back to one class and we say, 'obviously, something is not right'.
