The first resolved image of a black hole was made possible by a series of technological and computational breakthroughs. I will give an overview of the data flow, from petabytes recorded at radio telescopes all over the Earth to compressed kilobyte images. I will then describe what we see in the image, which relies on supercomputer simulations of how gas falls onto black holes, followed by ray tracing visualizations of how the light radiated by that gas should appear to observers on Earth.
