The Black Hole Symphony

"Black holes ain't as black as they are painted. They are not the eternal prisons they were once thought.  Things can get out of a black hole, both to the outside, and possibly to another universe. So if you feel you are in a black hole, don't give up. There's a way out."
Stephen Hawking
An English theoretical physicistcosmologist, and author

Black holes are a class of astronomical objects that have undergone gravitational collapse, leaving behind spheroidal regions of space from which nothing can escape, not even light. Observational evidence indicates that almost every large galaxy has a supermassive black hole at its center.

Supermassive black holes are engines of gravity, light  and creation.

Like a symphony orchestra emits sound across an array of frequencies, the gravitational waves emitted by black holes occur at different frequencies and times.
