Black holes have captured imagination since they were first proposed as “Dark Stars” – massive objects with so much gravitational pull that nothing can escape – not even light.
Did you see the Disney movie back in the day? We saw it as children, and that might have had something to do with why we HAD to make this video. That and our physics professors in college describing the process of “noodling out” – stretching and stretching as you are sucked in to a black hole.
One of our much-admired professors from Caltech, Kip Thorne, served as the science advisor for the film Interstellar. This movie gave the best visual description to date of a black hole, and it inspired our work here.
We’ve been working on this one for quite a while. It’s our most ambitious video yet. Please share it with all the stargazers you know.
