Black holes are probably the
most talked-about phenomenon in modern astrophysics. The idea of a point
in space so dense that not even light can escape its gravitational pull
is both frightening and fascinating.
Perhaps you’ve heard that
a black hole is a gateway to a parallel universe if only we could travel
safely through one. Perhaps you’ve heard the term "event horizon", the
imaginary boundary beyond which space and time reverse roles and no object
can ever return.
Well, this portion of the
tour will take you there... and back.
