Re: First Black Hole Photo

When the movie Interstellar debuted I read an interesting article about how the producers contracted what an astrophysicist to try and simulate a black hole in order to develop an image that was scientifically sound.

The following link is to a Wired article explaining the process of developing the movie effects.
