The black hole belongs to a quadruple stellar system, a binary binary. The system is fictional, but plausible.
After you are done dying at the central singularity of the black hole, feel free to explore more about the Schwarzschild geometry, about wormholes, about the collapse of a black hole, and about Hawking radiation.
