    Black holes are one of the many things in the universe that scientists still have a muddy understanding about. However, with the incredible advances of technology, we are able to understand more than what we have in the past. Today, the only way to observe these incredible objects are by looking for radiation from the gas surrounding it. What are they? Black holes are no more than a ^3 dead star. ^2 A star that is considered ^3 alive^2 would be our sun. The sun still produces energy by convertin...

    title: Black Hole Essay type: Research Paper body: Black Holes are considered a recent discovery in the almost age-old study of our universe. Since the beginning of our time here on earth, Man has always expressed fascination and interest in the sky above us and everything beyond. We look out to the unknown in times of awe, happiness, sadness and confusion. It is only recently that our study and understanding of the universe has begun to increase almost exponentially both in pace and possibiliti...

    What exactly IS a black hole With all the excitement surrounding the new Star Wars movie, it is a big day for lovers of science fiction. But how much does the average person really understand about beaming up; phases and photons; wormholes and warp drive How powerful are these fantasies compared to the real thing If theories of their existence are true, black holes are the most powerful force in the known physical universe; however, do they even exist Most scientists believe so, but by their ver...

    Black holes are objects so dense that not even light can escape their gravity, and since nothing can travel faster than light, nothing can escape from inside a black hole. Loosely speaking, a black hole is a region of space that has so much mass concentrated in it that there is no way for a nearby object to escape its gravitational pull. Since our best theory of gravity at the moment is Einstein's general theory of relativity, we have to delve into some results of this theory to understand black...

    Stars, comets, planets, they are all visible when you look up past our atmosphere. What if I told you that there were objects up there that you could not see, but had more gravity than an object 500 time larger than our sun. Objects, that are capable of swallowing whole planets within a split second of time. An object that would steal light right out of thin-air. These objects are more powerful than anything man made. Black holes are the most popular unknown object in science. A black hole is a...

    One of the few remaining mysteries of science is the black hole. When a star runs out of fuel to keep it burning, it explodes into a supernova (Intro. to Black Holes 1) After a supernova, some of the matter that was blown off leaves in pockets to different places in space. These pockets contract to from a pulsar, or new born star. The rest of the matter left from the massive explosion of the supernova comes back together forming a neutron star. If the dead star was too massive, the neutron star ...

    In our galaxy, there are millions of stars. In our universe, there are millions of galaxies. Humans have known about stars since the beginning of our existence. What we think of these mysterious things have changed over time. Even in periods as short as a lifetime our ideas have changed. I remember when I was young I thought of stars similar to the way astronomers thought many years ago, that the Earth was the center of the universe. As I got older I began to think more like the astronomers of ...

    "In Black Holes BLACK HOLES "In the beginning, there was light.' That is true in the case of black holes too. Black holes are the result of burned out stars that have collapsed on themselves. When a star begins to run out of fuel, the internal pressure of the fusion reactions, which was before, counteracted by gravity, begins to win over gravity. The star soon can no longer support its own weight and its outer layers escape its gravitational pull. This powerful explosion is called a super nova. ...

    Mike Black Holes BLACK HOLES Mike Carey Scientists have been trying to determine if black holes (earlier known as 'frozen stars) truly do exist for several decades now. Thanks to the great Albert Einstein and his theory of relativity, researchers have been able to predict the cosmic phenomenon of black holes. A black hole is basically an area of space that has an unbelievably high area of concentrated mass for the space it occupies, making it impossible for an object to escape its gravitational ...
