What does a black hole look like? Nothing, maybe? I don't think there's a clear answer, but that hasn't stopped people from making pictures of them. Some of them attempt realism, but most seem to include warped grids or other physics-inspired elements.
I'm going to try posting a black hole picture here every day, until I can't find any more.
I'll start with the original poster from the 1979 movie "The Black Hole" by Gary Nelson, "A journey that begins where everything ends." I loved that movie for the cool robots (good and evil, old and young) and the huge ship that (spoilers!) goes in at the end.
