KUWAITCITY/LONDON(IAMINKUWAIT) : An international scientific team announced on Wednesday an achievement in astrophysics by capturing the first ever black hole image using a global network of telescope devices, providing a better understanding of these celestial beasts that have a tremendous gravity that no body or light escapes.

The research was carried out by the Independent Horizon Telescope, an international joint venture launched in 2012 to try to monitor the black hole environment using a global network of ground-based telescopes.

Al Khobar was simultaneously broadcast at press conferences in Washington, Brussels, Santiago, Shanghai, Taipei and Tokyo.
