The indisputably biggest scientific event of last year was the image of a black hole that went viral in April and was seen by billions of people in record time. Black holes remain a great paradox of astrophysics, but also possess a magnetic attraction on our imagination. The process of taking the photograph was extremely complex and transformed eight observatories around the world into an artificial camera the size of the entire Earth. In parallel, Stephen Hawking and his team discuss the theory of black holes. Thought-provoking, as fascinating as an adventure film and as nerve-wracking as a thriller in a scene where everything depends on cloudless skies in all eight countries on the day itself!
