Abstract: Black holes are described mathematically as solutions of Einstein’s equations of general relativity. Among the many strange properties of black holes, I will explore the phenomenon of a “black hole bomb”, an instability which can arise when a black hole is perturbed by a scalar field. The ultimate fate of the black hole bomb is an open question, and I will discuss why this might be important, not only theoretically, but also for black holes in the universe.
