Black Holes

Black holes were theoretically established in 1915, shortly after Albert Einstein published his theory of General Relativity. Since then, observations have confirmed black holes as actual astrophysical objects. In this Insight we publish ten long- and short-format pieces (in the “Reviews & Perspectives” and “Views & Comments” tabs, respectively) discussing key aspects of black holes, from their masses, to their spins, to the ways in which they impact their surroundings and are studied. This collection also showcases some of the black hole-related content that Nature Astronomy has published since our launch (in the “Primary research” and “Further reading” tabs). Also, please view our previous collection of landmark black hole discoveries published in Nature and other Springer Nature journals.
