Black holes are the most mysterious creatures in the colourful zoo which we call the night sky. Everybody heard about them, but no one has ever seen one. They let the stars dazzle us so they can remain unnoticed, while they influence the universe invisibly from the background. There are people who doubt even their existence, and others who are certain that they are not just exist, but they are also responsible for the most spectacular events in the cosmos. It is time to talk about what we know, what we suspect and what is still a mystery about black holes. From the first idea of a black hole in Einstein's general relativity theory to their present-day research by means of telescopes, gravitational wave detectors and simulations. From micro black holes created in high energy collisions at CERN to supermassive black holes located in the centre of galaxies, like the one inside the Milky Way itself, it is time to unveil their secrets.
Ágnes Kis-Tóth was first enchanted by mathematics but during her studies she discovered another true passion: teaching. While she was already teaching maths at a university she finally succumbed to the temptation of physics and went back to studying. She is now a PhD student working enthusiastically in the field of astrophysics. In 2018 she won Hungary’s first FameLab competition.
