Black Holes Explained from Birth to Death

We’ve featured the videos from Kurzgesagt many times before here on Universe Today and they’re always wonderful. Sometimes a terrific animation with adorable birds is worth a million words. In their latest video, they cover black holes, from birth to death, giving you an overview of these bizarre objects.

But this episode is very special for me because: I wrote it. Well, I contributed an initial script and Matt, a PhD astrophysicist from Quarks and Coffee, added his own flare and tightened up the science.
