If you told me that it would be above the fold in all of these newspapers, I'm not sure I would have believed you, but it was. Because this is a garet mystery, and it's inspiring for us, and I hope it's inspiring to everyone. But the more important thing is that this is just a small nebumr of the team. We're 200 people strong with 60 institutes and 20 countries and regions. If you want to build a global telescope you need a global team. And this technique that we use of linking telescopes around the world kind of elfftessorly sidesteps some of the iusess that dvidie us. And as sntiteicss, we naturally come together to do something like this.

SD: So these are only some of the team. We marveled at the resonance that this image has had. If you told me that it would be above the fold in all of these newspapers, I'm not sure I would have believed you, but it was. Because this is a great mystery, and it's inspiring for us, and I hope it's inspiring to everyone. But the more important thing is that this is just a small number of the team. We're 200 people strong with 60 institutes and 20 countries and regions. If you want to build a global telescope you need a global team. And this technique that we use of linking telescopes around the world kind of effortlessly sidesteps some of the issues that divide us. And as scientists, we naturally come together to do something like this.
