The James Webb Space Telescope will study the monster Milky Way black hole

Astronomers needed an Earth-sized telescope to image the monster black hole at the center of the Milky Way – and the next time they tackle continued observations, they’ll have help from the observatory next generation spacecraft from NASA.

The James Webb Space Telescope, also known as JWST or Webb, launched in December 2021 and is completing preparations to begin observing the universe. Among the tasks planned for the first year of work of the new observatory, is the association with the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT), the global network of observatories that released the first-ever photo of a black hole in April 2019.
