ABSTRACT
Black holes are the most exotic objects in the Universe and understanding them is the single biggest challenge in fundamental physics. Join physicist Jeff Forshaw on a journey, exploring the importance of these phenomena and discovering how their often quite astonishing, counter-intuitive behavior turns our knowledge of physics on its head.
