What is a black hole?

Most people think of a black hole as a place where the gravitational pull is so strong that nothing can escape, not even light. However, a black hole is not a singular, discrete entity. Rather, it is a region of space-time where the pressure and gravitational forces are so great that even the very light that travels through it is distorted and pulled towards the singularity at the center. This makes it an incredibly difficult object to study, as even the tiniest change in the surrounding conditions could lead to completely different results.
