Light in the Darkness is The International Bestseller from the Award-Winning Astrophysicist who Inspired a Team of Astronomers to Take the First Ever Image of a Black Hole

Featuring a special foreword to this edition from DAME JOCELYN BELL BURNELL, world-renowned astrophysicist who first discovered pulsars, one of the most significant scientific achievements of the 20th century.
'A very personal account of the incredible journey Falcke and colleagues took to achieve the seemingly impossible task of taking an image of a black hole.'
BRIAN P. SCHMIDT, Nobel Prize-Winning Astronomer and Vice-Chancellor of the Australian National University

'You don't need to be a scientist to enjoy this clearly written book-the author offers a broader prospective on the motives that drive us to seek understanding of the cosmos and our place in it.'
SIR MARTIN REES, Astronomer Royal

'Heino Falcke does groundbreaking research into the universe's most mysterious phenomenon and at the very edge of space and time.'
From the statement of the jury for the Spinoza Prize

'Falcke isn't only a fantastic scientist, [he's] also a gifted storyteller.'
New Scientist (Dutch edition)
