The Earth goes around the Sun, and the Sun goes around the centre of the Milky Way: a supermassive black hole—the strangest and most misunderstood phenomenon in the galaxy.
In A Brief History of Black Holes, Dr. Becky Smethurst, an astrophysicist at the University of Oxford, traces the scientific progress that has revealed the bizarre and fascinating world of black holes, from the demise of enormous stars to the iconic first images of a black hole in 2019. You’ll find out why black holes aren’t actually “black,” why you should never ever want to get “spaghettified,” why black holes are more like sofa cushions than hoovers, and why the future is a direction in space rather than time beyond the event horizon. This fascinating book explains why black holes hold the answers to the most important mysteries of the cosmos. It is full of wit and knowledge.
