Black holes are among the most intriguing objects in modern physics. They power quasars and other active galactic nuclei and also provide key insights into quantum gravity. We review the observational evidence for black holes and briefly discuss some of their properties. We also describe some recent developments involving cosmic censorship and the statistical origin of black-hole entropy.
