It is therefore possible that the largest luminous bodies in the universe may be invisible -- Newton, forgive me -- One would then find oneself . . . in a geometrical fairlyand -- There should be a law of nature to prevent a star from behaving in this absurd way! -- I'll show those bastards -- Only its gravitational field persists -- I could not have picked a more exciting time in which to become a physicist -- It was the weirdest spectrum I'd ever seen -- Why don't you call it a black hole? -- Medieval torture rack -- Whereas Stephen Hawking has such a large investment in general relativity and black holes and desires an insurance policy -- Black holes ain't so black
