TRANSCRIPT: What does a black hole really look like?
Robert Wilson: The pictures they've probably seen are simulations of what we ought to see.
Nobel Laureate Robert Wilson explains how scientists are seeking ways to reveal a black hole's true form.
Wilson: There are something like seven different telescopes in different parts of the world. In Hawaii, Arizona, Chile, Mexico, South Pole, Spain...And they can all sort of work together to make a sort of Earth-sized telescope. And we hope that in the end, when we get all this working correctly, that we'll be able to see transient events. And really get a picture of what a black hole looks like and its surroundings.
