EHT Black Hole Dress

This Black Hole Dress is the perfect addition to your Astro-Chic Wardrobe!

In 2017, EHT began observation of the black hole in the center of Messier 87. 

Eight radio observatories on six mountains and four continents observed the galaxy in Virgo on and off for 10 days in April 2017 to provide the data yielding the image two years later in April 2019.

Much data processing later, the image revealed a bright ring formed as light bends in the intense gravity around a black hole- a supermassive black hole that is 6.5 billion times more massive than the sun! 

The result of the EHT project was a phenomenal contribution, and by sporting this high fashion dress you'll be a supermassive fashion success!

My go-to professional dresses!

Holly helped develop this dress (and actually a gala version I've been wearing as well for formal events) to celebrate our groundbreaking work with the Event Horizon Telescope to make the first ever real picture of a black hole! I love her dresses, I wore the spacetime dress at the press conference for the image too, they fit great, the fabric is really comfortable, high quality, robust and (really important!) easy to wash! As a professional scientist it's very important to have clothes that are formal enough to wear for official PR events and talks, and I have often struggled with that because I'm not a very formal person. These dresses are great because they are sleek and look great also with a jacket or sweater, and convey the message that I'm proud to be both a woman *and* a scientist! My only comment would be that as an extra short, extra small it sits a tiny bit long in the torso, but still fits me much better than most stuff I order!

Sleek and festive

Looks good and fits well. The geomertic print is very reminiscent of Indian block printed clothes - which I love. The orange glow of the center of the M87 blackhole on the black background makes it look like it is glowing. It is a bit snugger than I usually like (the fabric is stretchy) but it looks good.
