Black holes are among the simplest objects in the universe. The structure of a black hole can be completely determined by only three parameters: mass, charge and spin. However, origin of a black hole is very complex. It's impossible to imagine the degree to which space is curved and time flow is warped when a black holes are formed.  Black holes are not discovered yet experimentally. Problem is that black holes do not emit light. So, its impossible to observe a black hole directly. But scientists believe that they must exist.
