If a black hole is not a hole, then what is it? Plunge into this book to find out what black holes are, what causes them, and how scientists first discovered them. Learn how astronomers find black holes, get to know our nearest black-hole neighbour, and take a journey that will literally s-t-r-e-t-c-h the mind. Packed with diagrams, illustrations and charts, plus incredible telescopic photos (including NASA images), this brilliantly written book condenses a mind-boggling subject into a witty yet awe-inspiring narrative.
“Oh, my stars! As the cover proclaims, a black hole may not be an actual hole, but readers will be glad they fell into this book.” Kirkus Reviews
“Writing with rare verve… DeCristofano condenses recent astronomical discoveries into a high energy account of what we know or guess about one of the universe’s deepest and most unobservable secrets.” Booklist
