A groundbreaking image of Sagittarius A, the black hole that sits at the center of the Milky Way galaxy, was released on May 12 by astronomers with the EHT Collaboration, including UTSA's Dr. Richard Anantua. UTSA’s Richard Anantua specializes in reverse engineering near-horizon supermassive black hole observations. He modeled and simulated the plasma physics of Sagittarius A that helped make an image of the black hole possible. This is only the second time in history that an image of a black hole has been captured. The first image was released in 2019, depicting the black hole at the center of the M87 galaxy.
