It is an exciting time for the study of black holes. The Event Horizon Telescope is due to release the first image of an event horizon, namely that of the black hole Sgr A* at the center of our galaxy (Balick & Brown 1974; Brown 1982). This comes hot on the heels of the first direct detection of a binary black hole merger, using gravitational waves (Abbott et al. 2011).
