Perimeter Institute is building a team of researchers and students to conduct leading-edge analysis of astrophysical data collected by the Event Horizon Telescope. 

 
 
 
 
 

Perimeter researchers are trying to find out how far one can tweak general relativity and still end up with the universe we observe. Their method? Adding “hair” to black holes.
