99luftballon (838486) writes "Astronomers are planning the Event Horizon Telescope project in Arizona on Wednesday — and say in three or four years they should be able to image the ring of matter around the supermassive black hole at the centre of the Milky Way. The black hole is 26,000 miles away but should be large enough to check if Einstein got his equations right."

I do hope it's a bit more than 26,000 miles away, considering that is only a little more than 1/10 of the distance to the moon.
