Great achievements, innovations, and inventions have been recorded both in recent times and in the past by men and women of color, and this series celebrates their work and lives. By reading about how black people from around the world have contributed to our shared humanity, students of today can be inspired to pursue their own dreams. In a perfect world, we, like science, would not see colour. Until then, we celebrate and inspire with stories of BLACK ACHIEVEMENT IN SCIENCE.
In February 2016, scientists captured for the first time ever the burplike sound of gravitational waves, the ripples in space-time that result from the collision of black holes. Black holes have captured popular imagination since Albert Einstein first predicted their existence in 1916. In the late 1960s, American theoretical physicist John Archibald Wheeler coined the term to describe a region in space with a gravitational force so strong that not even light can escape its grip. High-tech satell
