Product Idea

Black Hole

This is my latest idea for the first picture of a BLACK HOLE.

My project is to represent the 8 telescopes that were involved on the picture of the black hole and a mosaic photo(10x10 bricks) from the black hole.

When I saw the photo of the black hole, I came up with the idea of immortalizing it in a small building of lego, as a reminder of this great moment.

It is the portrait of the super-heavy giant in the center of the galaxy Messier 87. And so this first look at a black hole shows again: Einstein's more than a century-old theories are still good for discoveries. 

 

It was captured in spring 2017 by the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT), a network of eight linked telescopes at 6 different locations:

 

  • Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA)
    • Location: Atacama Desert, northern Chile
  • Atacama Pathfinder Experiment (Apex),
    • Location: Atacama Desert, northern Chile
  • Submillimeter Telescope (SMT)
    • Location: Mount Graham, Arizona, US
  • IRAM 30m Millimeter Radio Telescope (IRAM 30m Telescope)
    • Location: Sierra Nevada, Spain
  • James Clerk Maxwell Telescope (JCMT)
    • Location: Hawaii County, US
  • Submillimeter Array (SMA)
    • Location: Hawaii County, US
  • Large Millimeter Telescope (LMT)
    • Location: Sierra Negra, Mexico
  • South Pole Telescope (SPT)
    • Location: South Pole

 

I hope you like my project and I would be happy if you support it.
