IAU astroEDU: Black Hole

Black holes are amongst the most exotic objects in the Universe and are often misunderstood as bottomless wells or holes. A black hole is a region of space where gravity is so strong that it captures anything that comes too close, even light. That’s where black holes get their name, because they do not emit light.
