: ...I was wondering if there really are Black Holes. I heard there were and that some scientists believe that there are...

For some time science theory has been advanced enough to make accurate predictions about experimental and observational findings prior to the performing of the experiment or observation. For instance anti-matter was discovered first experimentally and second experimentally. Black holes are one such example. Our observational discovery of black holes was predicted by general relativity first. A few pictures of black holes (more accurately of stuff falling into the holes) discovered by the Hubble are found here.
