Stephen Hawking and the mysterious case of the black hole

In April 2019, millions of people witnessed a scientific breakthrough for the ages as the world's first image taken of a black hole was made public. But how exactly were scientists able to capture a picture of a mass that devours everything – including light? THE EDGE OF ALL WE KNOW documents the work of the international Event Horizon Telescope project and of Stephen Hawking and his team, as they seek to solve the black hole paradox. This fascinating peek into the world of astrophysics, philosophy and engineering is a testament to human curiosity and ingenuity.
