Title: Black Holes in Binary Systems
Url: http://www.astrophys-assist.com/educate/bh/bh.htm
Creator: Gino, M. Colleen
Publisher: Astrophys-Assist
Description: Black holes are one of the most intriguing and mysterious of all astrophysical phenomena. While astrophysical theory has long supported the existence of black holes, it has been hard to fathom an object that is so incredibly dense that nothing, not even light itself, can escape its grasp. How does one go about locating an object that can’t be directly observed? Scientists must use methods other than direct observation to locate and study black holes. This can be accomplished by observing the effects that a black hole has on its surroundings, particularly when a black hole is part of a binary star sysem.
