"Take a seat on the ultimate thrill ride to explore nature’s strangest and most powerful objects.

But what happens if you stray too close to one? And what lies beyond the black hole’s abyss? If nothing can ever escape it, is that the end of the story? Or could they be a portal to another dimension—or another universe, full of black holes?"
