They are the most powerful objects in the universe. Nothing, not even light, can escape the gravitational pull of a black hole.
Astronomers now believe there are billions of them out in the cosmos, swallowing up planets, even entire stars in violent feeding frenzies.

Hosted by Morgan Freeman, Through the Wormhole explores the deepest mysteries of existence — the questions that have puzzled mankind for eternity. What are we made of? What was there before the beginning? Are we really alone? These questions have been pondered by the most brilliant minds in history.
Now, modern science may be able to provide us with answers.
