This piece is about two astronauts moving towards a black hole—one representing space and the other representing time. As an object moves closer to a black hole, the space gravitates towards the densest object in the universe, represented by the space astronaut. Another phenomenon is how time will start moving faster around you, represented by the time astronaut. At the center, no one knows what happens in a black hole. It's one of the big questions behind general relativity and its relationship with quantum mechanics.
