Your chance to look into a ‘black hole’: Scientists create material so dark you can’t see it

The blackest material known to man has been applied to a Lynx can that's on display in London this month.

Scientists have coated a can of Lynx spray with a MATERIAL CALLED VANTABLACK - the blackest material known to man.

Vantablack has such unusual light-absorbing properties that it confuses the human eye, making it very difficult to focus or see any contours. Read full article

Vantablack – the closest thing on earth to a black hole

Scientists in England say they've created a new way of synthesising light absorbing material that is so black it only reflects 0.035 percent of light, which could revolutionise satellites and telescopes, and our ability to understand the universe. Joel Flynn looks in. Read full article
