    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...

    Black Holes There are many strange and wonderful phenomenons being discovered throughout our Universe. One of the most intriguing is the concept of a black hole in space. Astronomers have discovered a black hole just 1, 600 light years away from Earth. The National Radio Astronomy Observatory cataloged this black hole in the constellation Sagitta ri on a star called V 4641. A black hole is one form of a dead star. A star has three choices when it dies, it can: shrink until it is a white dwarf, ...

    Stephen William Hawking was born on 8 January 1942 in Oxford, England. When he was eight, his family moved to St Albans, a town about 20 miles north of London. At eleven Stephen went to St Albans School, and then on to University College, Oxford which was his father's old college. Stephen wanted to do Mathematics, although his father would have preferred medicine. Mathematics was not available at University College, so he did Physics instead. After three years and not very much work he was award...

    Black Holes black hole is the velocity necessary to take one away from one's own gravitational force. For example, the escape velocity of earth is equal to 11 km / s . anything that wants to escape earth's gravitational force or pull must go at least 11 km / s , no matter what the thing is. The escape velocity of an object depends on how compact it is; that is, the ratio of its mass to radius. A black hole is an object so compact that, close to it, even the speed of light is not fast enough to e...

    black hole, in astronomy, celestial object of such extremely intense gravity that it attracts everything near it and in some instances prevents everything, including light, from escaping. The term was first used in reference to a star in the last phases of gravitational collapse (the final stage in the life history of certain stars; see stellar evolution), by the American physicist John A. Wheeler. Gravitational collapse begins when a star has depleted its steady sources of nuclear energy and ca...

    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...

    Everyday we look out upon the night sky, wondering and dreaming of what lies beyond our planet. The universe that we live in is so diverse and unique, and it interests us to learn about all the variance that lies beyond our grasp. Within this marvel of wonders our universe holds a mystery that is very difficult to understand because of the complications that arise when trying to examine and explore the principles of space. That mystery happens to be that of the ever clandestine, black hole. This...

Albert Einstein fell into the rare revolutionary group of ima...

Our search for explanation rests only when there is a lack of questions. Our skies hold infinite quandaries, so the quest for answers will, as a result, also be infinite.

    String theory is one of the most exciting and profound developments in modern theoretical physics. Unfortunately it is a highly technical subject that can only be well understood using the tools of Quantum Field Theory. It also doesn't hurt to know some mathematics like Group Theory, Differential Geometry, and Algebraic Geometry. Needless to say this is prohibitive for most people who are far too busy doing other things. String theory is to be a theory of quantum gravity, then the average size o...

    Stars can turn into varieties of things as they collapse, including white dwarfs, neutron stars, and black holes. A black hole is suggested to be the end product of a large star that is collapsing into itself, due to the fact that gravitational acceleration is calculated by the formula; A = Gmb/ r^6 Where mb is the mass of the black hole, as the radius, r, of the star decreases, the gravitational field on its surface increases. This causes a chain reaction in which a greater force is put on the ...

    Black Holes. Fact or Fiction? Over the years black holes have been portrayed as portholes to other dimensions or times, gates across the galaxy, objects of death and destruction, or all of the above. Black holes are real, that is one of the few things that we do know about them for sure; we also believe that we have a firm grasp on how they are created and what they do, but their purpose still remains a mystery. What is a Black Hole? To answer that question right off: a black hole is an area in ...

    Black holes are postulated to be one of the most destructive forces known in the universe, with nothing being able to escape from its gaping maw, not even light. Even, supposedly, all known laws of physics fall apart inside the depths of the black hole. So how does the universe allow these objects to exist? Or rather do they exist or are they just a product of humanity's misunderstanding? Fundamentally black holes are a product of gravity, the weakest of the four known forces in the universe. It...

    "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. ...
