Space Travel
More about Black Holes and Gravity Assist.

This is just guesswork on my part but maybe there’s an expert who can fill in the missing information.

If astronomers discovered two Black holes about twenty million miles from each other. A rocket travelling at its top speed uses black hole "A" to give it a boost toward black hole "B". Then it uses black hole "B" to give the craft more of a boost. Could such a craft keep swinging by each black hole to achieve a greater speed each time, possibly reaching near light speed?
