Black holes are points in space that are so dense they create deep gravity sinks. There are four types of black holes: stellar, intermediate, supermassive and miniature. Professor Stephen Hawking dedicated much of his career to unravelling the mysteries of black holes. Now it has been reported that on 7 May scientists discovered a new black hole that may be the nearest to Earth. This black hole is 1,000 light-years away (9.5 thousand, million, million km). While that sounds rather far, in the world of space, this makes the black hole our neighbour. Food for thought?

BRITAIN'S UNSUNG HEROES
on Channel4 on Wednesday at 10pm
The nation has come together weekly to applaud and acknowledge our brave NHS workers, fighting the virus on the front lines. This programme highlights and celebrates stories of the other vital key workers keeping Britain going through the crisis. Coronavirus is having a major impact across the land, but the country is still functioning, thanks to the unsung efforts of refuse collectors, teachers, bus drivers, carers, cleaners, supermarket staff and many other key workers. These are the everyday, often-undervalued heroes putting themselves at risk, whose contributions we may sometimes take for granted, but without whom we would be in dire straits. This emotional film follows a few such people doing their jobs and living their lives, offering a powerful picture of Britain today.
