Black holes are a theory explaining a very puzzling natural phenomenon. Scientists noticed that light gets bent sometimes in space. They noticed a pattern of that bending and predicted that something, otherwise invisible to us, was there. Then they found that when stars die, they can either explode and scatter or implode and become this phenomenon, and that there seems to be a rather large one of these phenomena in the center of our galaxy (and perhaps all galaxies).
The black holes in movies, as portals to other places, are a creative interpretation that doesn't represent our current understanding. I like to think of a black hole as a teeny-tiny galactic vacuum cleaner with a built in trash compactor. It sucks in anything that comes too near and removes the extra space from around the atoms, making it impossibly small and impossibly dense.
So, no one's been through one, and they don't lead anywhere according to current theory. The cool thing about science, though, is we keep proving ourselves wrong. You never know what we'll find out about the universe next!
A black hole is a gravitational phenomenon that is formed from the massive amounts of gravity in a collapsing star. This gravity is so strong that anything near the black hole is pulled to the the center and utterly annihilated. Not even light can escape a black hole. The more matter a black hole destroys, the larger it gets. Scientists believe that there is a super massive black hole in the center of our galaxy, and possibly at the center of every galaxy.
There is nearly a dozen proofs of black holes but only observed by seeing the gases around them or other indirect observation. But these only show 95% proof of existence of black holes. (though supported by theories). But left 5% can do miracle!!!!!!!!!!!
