Super fun and interesting! This course made me a lot more interested in the universe outside our own atmosphere, and now I want to buy a telescope...

I really liked this course, it was extremely interesting and very well done! I liked the interactivity as well! Thank you for the very good work!

From the lesson
Hunting for Black Holes
If black holes absorb all light, how do we see them? In this module, you will explore how astronomers observe real black holes, from studies of accretion discs and jets to the study of material orbiting a black hole.
