Black Holes – press kit

24 June 2010

A press kit about black holes is now available for download in PDF format. The guide gives a concise and accessible explanation of what black holes are, why they are interesting, the latest on black hole research from ESO — and why scientists say they have “no hair”.

It explains:

  • How black holes were discovered;
  • Why they exist;
  • What scientists know about them today; and
  • How a supermassive black hole lies at the heart of our own galaxy.

The press kit is available in English, and features a full list of black hole related ESO press releases.
