The Edge of All We Know
On April 10th 2019 the world was presented with the first photograph of a black hole. This picture was the result of the work of a global network of scientists and telescopes under the name Event Horizon Telescope. This documentary provides a behind-the-scene look of the years of work and dedication that made this incredible achievement possible, including the final attribution from Stephen Hawking to science. A tribute to those scientists that extend the border of our vision and therefore our knowledge.
After the movie a reaction and discussion follows with prof. Klaas Sijtsma, on organizing an ultimate scientific achievement. Klaas Sijtsma is rector magnificus a.i and professor of methods of psychological research.
