They have already become legendary, and form the basis of many myths and fantasies. Are they really the monsters of science fiction which devour light and stars? Are they purely hypothetical objects from the theory of relativity or are they an observable reality?In answering these question, the author takes us on a fabulous voyage through space and time. He explains how stars are born, light up and die. He takes into the strange world of supernovae. X-ray stars and quasars. We travel on a journey to the very edge of the Universe and to the limits of contemporary physics.
