Lack holes have long piqued our interest; the thought of a nearly invisible,
enormous vacuum cleaner travelling across space, prepared to gobble down
the Earth, is enough to keep anyone up at night. But despite their enigmatic origins,
we now know more than ever before about black holes and how they operate.
Black holes are extremely enormous objects with unimaginably intense
gravitational fields that prevent even light from escaping from them. They are
believed to be extremely prevalent, dispersed throughout the galaxy, and
possibly even closer than we realise.
