Black hole holography. Illustration showing how a three-dimensional black hole can be mapped onto a two-dimensional projection. This is known as the holographic principle, and is similar to concepts used in cosmological string theory and in quantum gravity. A black hole is formed when the core of a star collapses under its own weight, increasing its gravitational field to the point where, beyond a boundary known as the event horizon, nothing, not even light, can escape.
