Black holes are the universe at its most extreme: matter and energy crunched so small they literally exit the known universe. Scientists are beginning to suspect that these monsters have a powerful impact on galaxies, solar systems and space-time itself. And now, researchers are finally getting a grip on these black holes with a new generation of high-tech laser systems and advanced telescopes in space. 'Black Hole' will trace the life cycle of a black hole - and the quest to understand it - from its violent birth in the early universe, to the final moments of Time itself.
