AoT London: Polarised image of the M87 supermassive black hole
June 23, 2021 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM BST
The Event Horizon Telescope Collaboration recently updated the famous black hole image from 2019, in which a new fascinating pattern on top of the ring shows the polarisation of light. Join us to discover what polarisation is, dive into the physical effects that go into our simulations and learn more about what polarisation can tell us about the black hole and its environment!
