The International Bestseller

On April 10, 2019, award-winning astrophysicist Heino Falcke presented the first image ever captured of a black hole at an international press conference—a turning point in astronomy that Science magazine called the scientific breakthrough of the year. That photo was captured with the unthinkable commitment of an intercontinental team of astronomers who transformed the world into a global telescope. While this image achieved Falcke’s goal in making a black hole “visible” for the first time, he recognizes that the photo itself asks more questions for humanity than it answers.

Light in the Darkness takes us on Falcke’s extraordinary journey to the darkest corners of the universe. From the first humans looking up at the night sky to modern astrophysics, from the study of black holes to the still-unsolved mysteries of the universe, Falcke asks, in even the greatest triumphs of science, is there room for doubts, faith, and a God? A plea for curiosity and humility, Light in the Darkness sees one of the great minds shaping the world today as he ponders the big, pressing questions that present themselves when we look up at the stars.

"Heino Falcke has produced a personal memoir of his key role in a scientific discovery that required boldness, persistence, technical expertise and complicated logistics involving hundreds of experts spread around the world. You don't need to be a scientist to enjoy this clearly written book--and it's a welcome bonus that 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
