What is a Black Hole?

A black hole is a place in space where gravity pulls so much that even light can not get out. The gravity is so strong because matter has been squeezed into a tiny space. This can happen when a star is dying.

Because no light can get out, people can’t see black holes. They are invisible. Space telescopes with special tools can help find black holes. The special tools can see how stars that are very close to black holes act differently than other stars.

Around the black hole is formed mathematically determinable surface, called the event horizons, that marks the point at which the return is impossible.

  • I find this particular topic unbelievably interesting. I completely agree with your statement about astronomy being a gateway to another reality/dimension. It’s so fantastic that science is getting super close to proving that there truly are other dimensions out there…which makes one wonder about time travel…. I’ve often wondered about Albert Einstein traveling from another dimension (that probably sounds super crazy) but it’s nuts to think how progressively ahead he was of just about any other human during his time and even with many of us today. Definitely one of those things that makes you go, “Hmmm…”

    • Yeaah!

      Totally agree with you Lisa, 

       I thing that  we still don’t know a lot about what’s going on in the universe.  There still a lot for discovering, and we are living in exactly right time for it.

      Thanks for the comment!
