The reality, however, is that we don’t actually have any confirmation. As EHT member Katie Bouman puts it in a TEDx talk, there could be an elephant at the center of our galaxy for all we know.” Even the one in Interstellar was deliberately changed from the predictions of physics to make it look “better”.
