First Photo of Black Hole in Outer Space

Or is it an out of focus photo of a giant glazed donut?

“We have taken the first picture of a black hole…………This is an extraordinary scientific feat accomplished by a team of more than 200 researchers…… We have achieved something presumed to be impossible just a generation ago………..Breakthroughs in technology, connections between the world’s best radio observatories, and innovative algorithms all came together to open an entirely new window on black holes and the event horizon.”

It takes 200+ researchers to snap a pic of ONE lousy black hole? Gotta be some serious grant money involved!
