A new paper in the Astrophysical Journal Letters tells the new and ongoing research done by the team working with the Event Horizon Telescope looking at the first ever photograph taken of a black hole. This photograph won the team an award two years ago. JILA Fellow and assistant professor in the Department of Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences, Jason Dexter, is a coordinating author on this paper, and is excited by the current research. According to an article written by science writer Dan Strain, Dexter said: "I think these new papers are going to be a major step forward in major step forward in using Event Horizon Telescope data to look at how black holes grow."
