Einstein's Monsters: The Life and Times of Black Holes

Black holes are the most extreme objects in the universe, and yet they are ubiquitous. Every massive star leaves behind a black hole when it dies, and every galaxy harbors a supermassive black hole at its center. Frighteningly enigmatic, these dark giants continue to astound even the scientists who spend their careers studying them. Which came first, the galaxy or its cent Black holes are the most extreme objects in the universe, and yet they are ubiquitous. Every massive star leaves behind a...

    This is Black Hole 101. Most books about astronomy are very difficult to understand because they expect you to have a degree in physics. Not this one. I understand almost everything Impey is trying to say. So Einstein?s general relativity predicts black holes. We now have proof t...
