The physics of black holes
The Singularity Theorem (Nobel Prize in Physics 2020)
In 2020, Roger Penrose was awarded half of the Nobel prize in physics for proving that black hole formation is a robust prediction of Einstein’s general theory of relativity.
How many different kinds of black holes are there?
Once they have settled down, there are actually only very few different kinds of black hole – find out which, and how black holes shed other distinguishing marks.
Changing places – space and time inside a black hole
How, in one sense, space and time switch their roles inside a black hole – and why this leads to a black hole’s most characteristic property, namely that nothing can get out
Particle accelerators as black hole factories?
The intriguing possibility that the next generation of particle accelerators might produce – and allow the detection of – miniature black holes
