The Search for Black Holes
Audience: High School
Description: One of the most remarkable predictions of Einstein's general theory of relativity is the Black Hole, a region of warped spacetime left over from the catastrophic collapse of a star from which nothing, not even light, can escape. What is a Black Hole and what are its properties? Do Black Holes really exist? Will a world-wide network of gravitational-wave observatories that recently began operation give us the ``smoking gun'' for the existence of black holes?

Keywords: black holes
gravity waves
