*Black holes in the Universe*
Black holes contain so much mass in such a confined space that nothing can escape them, not even light. Their existence was predicted by Einstein’s general theory of relativity a century ago. Nowadays they present a standard way to explain the fate of cores of massive stars, but they can be found also in centers of active galaxies, even a collision of two black holes has been spotted a few times. The talk will start with an overview of black holes with masses similar to stars, next we will comment on the first image of a black hole published recently, and finally, we will mention gravitational waves which are produced when black holes collide. Related research results of Slovenian astrophysicists will be mentioned.
