Black holes are strange and exotic objects from our point of view. Their gravitational attraction is so intense that, once it's passed a certain boundary, nothing can escape. However, black holes are also relatively common: nearly every large galaxy has one at its center, and many smaller black holes are scattered around the cosmos. In this class, we'll discuss what black holes really are, how we know they exist, and why they're important.

Instructor: Matthew Francis
