Dr. Ciriaco Goddi, BlackHoleCam Project Scientist from Radboud University, is at the ALMA observatory  for the 2018 observing campaign of the Event Horizon Telescope.
In this video, he explains what VLBI is, the interferometric technique to make very high-angular resolution images of radio cosmic sources, and which are the challenges of these observations, which will eventually lead to the first image of a super-massive black hole.
