Scientists that displayed world's first black hole image, win Oscar of Science award

For their breakthrough in what could be defined as near impossible, 347 scientists that collaborated to produce the world's first image of a black hole, were honoured with the breakthrough prize in Fundamental Physics, which is known as the 'Oscar of Science' and won $3 million dollars. On April 10, the world was presented with a glimpse of the first image of the supermassive black hole, circled by a halo of white-hot plasma.
