How do you photograph a hole in the universe? Black Holes: The Edge of All We Know tells the story of a paradox at the heart of black holes: When something falls inside, is it truly lost forever? A tight-knit group of physicists, secluded in the English countryside, search for the answer. Meanwhile, a global network of scientists builds a telescope, literally the size of Earth, to achieve something more straightforward but equally profound: taking a photo of a black hole for the first time.
