Event Horizon Telescope: Observations, Implications, and Prospects

The Event Horizon Telescope project has enabled horizon-scale imaging of the black hole in M87.  I will describe some of the key features of the resulting image, list some of the main conclusions that can be drawn about the physical nature of the putative black hole and its surroundings, and describe prospects for the next generation of EHT observations.
