Many people think black holes continually suck in everything like great big cosmic bathtub drains. And what the heck are neutron stars? Understanding the nature of black holes and neutron stars--how they form, what they're like, and how we know they are there--can lead to a better understanding of how our Universe works.

The information in this web site is intended for a non-technical audience. If you are interested in more scientifically complex discussions of black holes and neutron stars (you know, where they use all those great big words), you gotta look somewhere else. The Q & A section offers slightly more advanced discussions.

Make sure you check out the Online Books section, where you can order books about black holes and neutron stars from amazon.com!
