Definitely good introductory course for someone interested in black holes! The instructors are funny and really taught me things with certain detail. Like it!

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...

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.
