Prof Deane is an associate professor and astrophysicist in the Department of Physics in the Faculty of Natural
and Agricultural Sciences, where he leads the newly-formed radio astronomy group.
He is a part of the Event Horizon Telescope Collaboration, an international team of over 200 scientists who captured the first image of a black hole. This was released to the world on 10 April 2019, making global headlines and has been estimated to have been seen by approximately 4.5 billion people.
In this public lecture, he will describe the Earth-sized telescope used to make this now iconic image and what it means for science and society.
