This film is part of a series, narrated by actor Richard Chamberlain, that explores the advancements being made by today's astronomers in understanding the nature of the universe. This episode looks at the efforts of an international team of scientists, led by California Institute of Technology's John Conway and Tony Readhead, to track the activity of a gigantic black hole at the center of another galaxy. The energy force of a black hole is such that nearby celestial bodies are pulled into its gravitational field. This black hole has already absorbed hundreds of stars into its energy field. The film follows the efforts of the team of astronomers, as they use a massive telescope to attempt to see deep inside the black hole and learn more about its nature and the universe.
