The 2020 Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics has been given to members of the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) collaboration for obtaining 'the first image of a supermassive black hole, taken by means of an Earth-sized alliance of telescopes'. The $3m prize will be shared equally by all 347 authors of six papers that announced the image on 10 April 2019.
Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of science, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
The image is a close-up of the region surrounding a supermassive black hole that lies at the center of the Messier 87 galaxy, which is about 55 million light-years away.
