The Event Horizon Telescope is an international collaboration aiming to capture the first image of a black hole by creating a virtual Earth-sized telescope.

Join us to talk story about the groundbreaking results from the Event Horizon Telescope and the pioneering role Hawaii telescopes, the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope and the Submillimeter Array, played in this nearly-impossible experiment, and to explore the way in which Hawaiian language and culture are enriching astronomy with a bridge to a new, yet old, understanding of the cosmos.
