Theoretical Black Hole

Armed with Einstein’s theories, the German astronomer Karl Schwarzschild (1873-1916) developed the idea of the black hole as we know it today. He did not call it a black hole. This term was first used in the late 1960s by the American physicist John Wheeler. Before Wheeler, they were called “Frozen stars”.Reference for Technorati
