: Do you any info concerning proof that blackholes exist?

: any info would be greatly appreciated.

well, we cant really see them directly, but we can observe the effect they have on nearby stars; ie. gravitational lensing, twin star orbit when no observable matter is there for another star to orbit around.

or the effect of having an entire galaxy spin on an axis that would, mathmatically, require an enormous mass at its center to keep everything in 'orbit' around its center.
