A black hole is a place in space where gravity pulls so much that even light can not get out. The gravity is so strong because matter has been squeezed into a tiny space. This can happen when a star is dying.

Because no light can get out, people can't see black holes. They are invisible. Space telescopes with special tools can help find black holes. The special tools can see how stars that are very close to black holes act differently than other stars. Mouad Ghaffouli · 2 years, 9 months ago

Black holes are formed after a star explodes in a supernova and then if it gets attracted towards its own gravity and form a void or a hole in space........its not yet found out tha what is actually inside a black hole ...... it could be a void of empty space or a gate to another dimensio or a time portal or someting like that.........
