Summary
So...if a black hole isn't a hole, then what IS it? If you have the slightest interest in science generally, space in particular, or in anything so strong that "no army of tow trucks, no convoy of supersized earth haulers, no fleet of giant rocket engines" could out-pull it, you owe it to yourself to read this book and find out. -- Description by Rebecca Honeycutt
