This was a gift for a boy 13 who has taken an interest in space since they went on vacation and saw a movie at the Science Center in Chicago. He was very interested and so he and his brother stayed glued to the DVD movie that I gave him. They really liked it.

Fantastically informative
Review by Fred E. on 09/27/20 review stating Fantastically informative
I recently viewed this NOVA presentation on PBS. It certainly didnt disappoint and provided outstanding revelations concerning the nature of;(a) Black Holes, (b) what causes them, (c) the frequency of these anomalies in galaxies and (d) the unimaginable vastness of the physical Universe that Black Holes exist within. Example: I didnt realize that Black holes are currently believed by many in the scientific community to devour not only matter and energy but also to devour SPACE and time. I also didnt realize that the reason that light cant escape the event horizon of a Black Hole is because space has been accelerated by the Black Hole to velocities BEYOND the speed of light. I had always been taught that NOTHING could exceed the speed of light. WOW, looks like WARP SPEED is a confirmed reality! Great Video.

Ever Popular Black Holes
Review by Flint S. on 07/17/20 review stating Ever Popular Black Holes
This is an engaging and up to the moment presentation. My students love astronomy, especially Black Holes. This shows men and women astronomers at work with their high tech instruments and having fun as they describe these mind expanding objects.

Review by El J. on 07/17/20 review stating A TINY GLIMPSE INTO BLACK HOLES
A tiny glimpse into the fantastically, inexplicable, powerful and mysterious behavior on these shire size monsters of the Universe! I just wish the video was a longer one with more detailsEUR_especially if at current time, Scientists have more new data.
