In his recent Forbes article, astronomer and author Ethan Siegel covered many basics of the Event Horizon Telescope mission and expectations for what we may soon be "seeing" based on the observations...
The delivery of disks full of VLBI data for Event Horizon Telescope observations in April 2017 from the South Pole Telescope to the MIT Haystack Observatory made it to the list of the most interesting events in science at the end of 2017: Nature
On NPR's 13.7 blog, Adam Frank, an astrophysics professor and an author, and Charles Gammie, a member of the EHT collaboration, discuss how close we are to obtaining images of black holes: Are We About To See A Black Hole?
In a recent blog post within the series entitled "Taking the First Picture of a Black Hole", the ESO outreach team explains some technological challenges that the Event Horizon Telescope collaboration faces in pursuit of high-resolution images of black holes using the technique of very long baseline interferometry: Challenges in Obtaining an Image of a Supermassive Black Hole
"After completing five nights of observations, today astronomers may finally have captured the first-ever image of the famous gravitational sinkhole known as a black hole. [...]
As the final observing run ended at 11:22 a.m. ET, team member Vincent Fish sat contentedly in his office at the MIT Haystack Observatory in Westford, Massachusetts. For the past week, Fish had been on call 24/7, sleeping fitfully with his cell phone next to him, the ringer set loud."
