  Scientists plan movie of A*Sep 05, 2019 9:25 PM PDT | url
 
Added 1 new A* page:The scientific team that got the first ever image of a black hole earlier this year—it was the supermassive black hole at the radio source designated Sagittarius A* at the center of our galaxy—has announced, according to today's BBC article, their plan to capture not just a blurry photo, but a "razor sharp" movie of the black hole "consuming the material around it."
 
The video capture is to be made possible by upgrades to the global network of radio telescopes they're using to peer through the light years of gas and dust between Earth and A*: telescopes in Greenland, France, and "parts of Africa" will be added to the network, as well as three small orbiting satellites.
