The sixty-symbols website has quite the collection of intriguing astronomical theories and interviews, but I specifically chose that of the black hole that contains interviews by Omar Almaini, Ed Copeland, Tony Padilla, Meghan Gray and Mike Merrifield from the University of Nottingham. The video began by a man revealing to his audience that he is often questioned about his personal opinion on black holes, which he informs us that “of course” he sees them as frightening and intimidating but goes on to refer to them as “cuddly”. Upon further explanation he points out two small (but different sized), round, black balls of fabric (that seemed to be knitted) that were gifts for his sister-in-law and they are meant to be representation of black holes with their solid black exterior. This seems like a useless example, but after thinking about it more critically I realize that I wasn’t
Singularities are amazing things to read about. First of all they spawn when a star dies and then form a black hole. Another thing is that they have no physical laws. They are at the center of a black hole and are what causes the black holed immense gravitational pull. They cause this amount of force because they are infinitely dense and infinitely small. They have an infinite number of atoms. Even though they have more atoms then all of this solar systems, atoms combined, they are still invisible to the naked eye and anything here on earth. They should not be
“Infinite storage may be on your way! This is World Wide News bringing you news around the world. The cause of the backlog of Netscape has been found. The black hole has been holding and storing information. Probes determined that due to its distortion of space, C1117S may hold infinite
5. Stephen Hawking a well-known theoretical physicists, has contemplated the conundrum of whether or not information is destroyed at the horizon of black hole.
Black holes should probably not be called black holes. In fact, black holes are anything but empty space. Black holes are a great amount of matter packed and squeezed into a very small area. The result of this amount of matter squeezed into a small area results in a gravitational field so strong that nothing, not even light, can escape.
So enough about me, let's talk about my latest experience in the Black Hole. The cafeteria was serving meatloaf, and everyone here knows that it's made out of horse manure and elephant dung, so I refused to eat it. One of the nurses wouldn't stop hovering over me like a hawk, telling me I had to eat it. She was getting pissed that I wasn't following the other
It is giant, rip in space in which everything is sucked in. A black hole sucks everything within a certain vicinity inside of it depends on how large it is. If a coin sized black hole were placed at the center of the earth, the earth would be destroyed. But not all of the earth would be sucked in only a partial amount. However all life on that side would be obliterated. Asteroids are a big factor in the role of destruction. Imagine yourself inside a drifting spaceship in the middle of nowhere and a giant rock is hurtling towards you. Pretty scary right? Well that’s pretty much what it feels like when an asteroid is hurtling towards you. If an asteroid hits your ship you’re pretty much screwed. The asteroid could puncture the ship and suck out all the air inside, then you will have to fix the exterior manually. Which exposes you to more problems. So asteroids are not a good thing. Air is also a big factor in space. What happens if your in the middle of exploring and your air runs out? I think you know. Red light flashing on the side of your helmet a rock has punctured your suit depleting you of your oxygen. Next thing you know your crew leaves you behind and you’re stranded on Mars. That's actually from a movie, but you get the point right? Good well, I haven’t covered all of space but if I were to we’d be here the rest of our lives! So that’s all i’m
Black Holes This paper will introduce you to the incredible topic which is black holes. A black hole is a region of space time exhibiting such strong gravitational effects that nothing can escape from inside it. (NASA) No human has ever entered a black hole and there is still a large mystery about them; we have very little idea of where the matter that enters them goes. A black hole cannot be looked into either, as it sucks all the light into the middle of it. Space programs use special satellites with certain features that allow them to see these black holes. A black hole can be big or small, sometimes forming when a star is dying. Some scientists speculate that there can be black holes just 1 centimeter large. There are multiple types of
Back on the space ship, Mary and Celeste are in for the ride of their lives. The spaceship approaches the black hole and the ship begins to shake with much force but withstands the various tiers of gravity changes. The next thing they know they go inside. Not much is seen or told about what happens during the time when they enter the black hole and if they escape. They do end up escaping however, Mary and Celeste have aged a bit. Well actually Mary grew up and Celeste got younger. The surrounding universe was laid out with the black hole they came out of and a string of planets in a row and at the end of it another black hole. Possibly and escape route. Mary at the time has no communication with her father whatsoever. She barely has any fuel to continue her voyage so she stops at the very first planet she could get to. From there she tries to gather as much info about the universe as possible and also as much resources and fuel as she can. She discovers puzzles which help her on her journey. With the help of Celeste she could reach things that were once unattainable to her. Her adventure has a constant steady pace until she
There are three main types of black holes, stellar, supermassive, and miniature, or primordial ones. Stellar black holes are enormous stars that have run out of nuclear fuel, which then creates an unsteady situation. The outer layers then proceed to explode in a supernova leaving the middle to implode essentially creating a black hole if the star was large enough. Said to be the collapse of a compact cluster of stars, supermassive black holes are revealed to astronomers by rapid moving gas jets that point towards the massive holes typically in the center of galaxies. The Space Telescope Science Institution (STSCI) even says that there might be one in the center of our own galaxy, the Milky Way. They also say that the constellation Sagittarius, in the summer, is the direction of the center of our galaxy if one was to look at it. When substances cross the event horizon of the black hole it increases the mass of it, which expands the horizon, this means it is larger and can grab things farther away. Lastly, is the mini black holes that the STSCI and along with various theories believe might have been formed in the early universe, the Big Bang, which is the moment the universe was believed to be created. The event horizons of these black holes are quite small, the width of an atomic particle. They can only hold up to the amount of matter of Mt. Everest. The formation of these little black holes are from the compression of matter caused by the
Throughout the modern era of astronomy, a single type of celestial object has puzzled astronomers more than any other. Black holes, whose existence was only verified in the early 1990’s, have fascinated scientists ever since Einstein first proposed the theoretical concept in the 1930’s. A black hole is an object so tiny, but also so dense, that it has the power to pull planets, stars, and even light into its core, and ultimately destroy everything in its path. Over the past decade much has been discovered about these enigmas of space and time; however, many of these recent discoveries lead to more unanswered questions. Nevertheless, the basic life cycle of a black hole is now understood in ways thought to be impossible only twenty years
Black Hole Facts The definition of a black hole according to Sea and Sky is “The collapsed core of a massive star. Stars that are very massive will collapse under their own gravity when their fuel is exhausted. The collapse continues until all matter is crushed out of existence into what is known as a singularity. The gravitational pull is so strong that not even light can escape.” Seasky.org, cited 2016: “Black hole”. Glossary of Astronomy. [Available online at http://www.seasky.org/astronomy/astronomy-glossary.html#B]. Black holes are not visible to the human eye. Since they are so dense, light is not able to escape them resulting in them being invisible. Special tools are required for them to be discovered and located with telescopes. This is done by seeing how stars close to them act different from others.
9. According to http://www.nasa.gov/audience/forstudents/k-4/stories/nasa-knows/what-is-a-black-hole-k4.html, could a blackhole destroy Earth? The Moon? The Sun? According to NASA: What is a black hole – A black hole could not really destroy the earth because
Problems with the Kerr Hypothesis Roy Kerr’s theory on the rotating black hole, along with the rotating singularity seemed to convince many, even before black holes were not believed to exist. However, modern work published in late August 1998 by Piran and Shahar Hod has seemingly ended this idea. They used complex computer simulations to study how an electrically charged black hole might form and how the singularity would behave. They showed that a process known as "mass inflation" violated the Kerr hypothesis. When a particle moves towards the black hole, the apparent mass of the hole increases to infinity as observed by the object. Thus, causing the singularity to go
People have often thought of going back in time because of regrets or mistakes they want to fix in the past. The only way to go to the past is time travel there. Time travel has been know as science fiction but now scientist have been believing time travel is
