Black Holes

This comes courtesy of Shai M:

This is a cool video about black holes.  Black holes are large stars that collapse under their own gravity into a very small volume of space, called a Schwartzschild radius.  This video has some nice graphics that show what a black hole would look like from outside, including the gravitational lensing effects a black hole would have on light coming from behind it.
