BU Astronomers Stare into Darkness

black hole

Last week, a team of astronomers announced that they had captured the first-ever image of a black hole in space. While this discovery is amazing for a myriad of reasons, we can personally take pride in knowing that some Core DNA went into this amazing discovery. As Core alum Peter La Fountain pointed out, Core Curriculum professor and BU Astronomer Alan Marscher was one of the 200 scientists on the black hole team. La Fountain continued to say that “Research doesn’t come out of a… black hole… it comes from prioritizing resources to advance public knowledge.” We couldn’t agree more!
