There are monsters out in the cosmos

That can swallow entire stars

Inside these equations, there’s a monster

Anything that strays too close will be pulled in

Gravity is infinite at the centre of black hole

Time stops – space makes no sense

Every galaxy has got one big black hole in the middle

And millions of smaller black holes

An anomaly of gravity so strange

Nothing is more seductive

There are monsters out in the cosmos

That can swallow entire stars

That can destroy space itself

Completely invisible

Anything that strays too close will be pulled in

In the last century, black holes have gone from being mathematical curiosities

To real objects in the cosmos

Seemingly crucial to the formation of galaxies

Nothing can escape it, even light

There must be millions and millions of black holes

Zipping around our galaxy, nothing there to light them up

At the heart of a large black hole is a singularity

It’s a point of infinite density

The accepted laws of physics break down

Black holes form when giant stars run out of fuel

And collapse under their own weight

Dark remnants of burned out stars

Truth is stranger than sci-fi


Nothing is bigger and scarier than a black hole

A boundary between the known universe

And a place beyond the reach of science
