Three hours before we were scheduled to record today’s episode of the Daily Space, the Event Horizon Telescope collaboration held a press conference with their latest results related to the super massive black hole in the center of our galaxy. Seven minutes later a slate of ten journal articles was published on these findings in the Astrophysical Journal Letters.

I am now going to try to summarize what I have so far been able to unpack from this trove of data, modeling, and interpretations.
