On Wednesday, April 10, the Event Horizon Telescope Project released the first-ever photo of a black hole.

The image, which you can view here, captures the black hole’s horizon, which is basically the barrier between the black hole’s interior and exterior space. The release of this photo comes more than 100 years after Albert Einstein first theorized the existence of black holes.
