Gravity and physics of black holes

The physics of black holes is still far from understood, and we seek answers to questions about what is inside black holes, and what they consist of.

General Relativity predicts the existence of black holes, objects with so strong gravitational field that even light cannot escape. They can be created from collapsing stars. The physics of black holes is still far from understood, and we search for answers to questions about what is inside black holes, and what do they consist of. These questions are closely tied to a deeper understanding of space, time and gravity.
