We will start by recalling the weak cosmic censorship conjecture. Then we will review Christodoulou’s construction of naked singularities for the spherically symmetric Einstein-scalar field system. Finally, we will discuss joint work with Igor Rodnianski which constructs spacetimes corresponding to the exterior region of a naked singularity for the Einstein vacuum equations
