Could we harness the power of a black hole?
Imagine a distant future when humans reach beyond Earth, forge cities on planets thousands of light-years away, and maintain a galactic web of trade and transport. What would it take to make that leap? And where would we get enough energy to power that civilization? Fabio Pacucci explores the possibility of harnessing energy from a black hole to power a galactic civilization. [Directed by TOTEM Studio, narrated by Addison Anderson, music by Stephen LaRosa].
