Earlier this year, scientists revealed the first-ever image of a black hole’s event horizon. Now, look behind the scenes at the amazing work that went into its creation. In collaboration with Freethink Media, the John Templeton Foundation has produced a video around the question “What’s inside a black hole?” featuring Harvard’s Astronomy Chair, Dr. Avi Loeb, of the Black Hole Initiative, which received a $7.2 million grant from the Foundation in 2016.

Following this initial project, the John Templeton Foundation has awarded the Black Hole Initiative with an additional $3.6 million grant to continue its groundbreaking efforts over the next three years. This collaborative enterprise brings together scholars of diverse disciplines including astronomers, computer scientists, and plasma physicists as well as philosophers and filmmakers. Curious how this dynamic team embraces the challenges and benefits of interdisciplinary dialogue? Watch the full video here:
