You can escape a Black Hole: Surprising Informative Essay Have you ever taken the time to reflect and glaze upon the night sky, conjecturing and dreaming of what lies beyond our planet? Our universe also known as the Milky Way Galaxy is very miscellaneous and unique. With many marvelous wonders, the Milky Way Galaxy holds about mysterious belongings that are very challenging for human minds to understand due to the many complications that arise when we try to examine and explore the principles of space. One of the universe biggest mysteries is that of the ever indescribable, black hole. By definition, a black hole is a “celestial body so dense that light cannot escape its gravitational pull. It is formed when a star gravity causes it to…show more content…
One can relate by using examples of comets. There are comets that approach earth but then drifts away from earth’s atmosphere. “However, on must realize that geodesics are paths of freely falling objects only”(Biswas 1) Thus the only object that has a chance to escape a black hole is one that has engine powered turbines, such as a space ship. An unpowered space ship that enters a black hole will surely fall into the center of the black hole passing through the event horizon, also known as “the point of no return” (University of Illinois). At this point the space ship is constantly going down in free fall, thus as soon as the rockets are ignited, non gravitational forces are applied and the space ship will no longer be following the geodesics. Therefore once the momentum of the space ship is reversed the rocket engines are turned off the spaceship will be following a new geodesics or a reverse geodesics of the one which it entered. In similar words if the space ship could fall from point A to point B, it can retrace itself from point B to point A, by reversing its momentum at point B. Point A would be outside the black hole and point B inside the black hole. So if the spacecraft can go from outside (space) to inside the black hole, then it can do the opposite by reversing the momentum. Professor Tarun implies that, “The reversing of momentum requires a finite change in momentum and as it can be done in nonzero time, it can be done by a finite amount of force.” (Biswas
