NOVA’s program on black holes last night was absolutely fantastic! The world’s foremost experts on the subject of black holes employed an array of flashy visual models, theoretical prognosticating and simplified analogies to describe a very complex phenomenon for the viewers. I was struck by how much information scientists have compiled on this mysterious yet incredibly powerful occurrence as well as the kinds of advanced technological devices experts use in amassing their data. NOVA has yet again proven that science can be presented in an entertaining and informational manner without losing any of its power to astonish and build knowledge for the everyday viewer.
