Black holes are formed by a giant old star that blown up and then gets sucked back together because of gravity.

I don`t know where they are found in space but it is speculated that there is one black hole in the center of every galaxy which is used to hold every thing in place and is used as a revolving point for the universe.

The black hole is of imense gravity that it even sucks in light itself so anything that passes the event horizon needs to excellerate past the speed of light (which is impossible to do with Einstien`s theory of Relativity) to escape. Also we cannot even see the black hole or anything past the event horizon because the black hole has already sucked in the light.
