    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...

    A black hole is an object with a concentration of mass great enough that the force of gravity prevents anything from escaping from it except through quantum tunneling behavior. The gravitational field is so strong that the escape velocity near it exceeds the speed of light. This implies that nothing, not even light, can escape its gravity, hence the word 'black.' The term 'black hole' is widespread, even though it does not refer to a hole in the usual sense, but rather a region of space from whi...

    The theory that black holes have existed is not new at all. The thought of them first started in 1783 when Rev. John Michell applied Newton's theory of gravity to predict the possibility of so-called "dark stars." Albert Einstein's theory of relativity predicted in 1915 "Schwarzschild singularities." In 1967, these were renamed "black holes." A black hole is collapsed object (usually a star) that has become invisible and has such a powerful gravitational force that nothing, even light, can escap...

    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...

    The Search for Black Holes: Both As A Concept And An Understanding For ages people have been determined to explicate on everything. 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. Since its inception, Astronomy as a science speculated heavily upon discovery, and only came to concrete conclusions later with closer inspection. Aspects of the skies which at one time seemed lik...

    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 ...

    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 are possibly the most famous of all the stellar phenomena. Probably because they are so mysterious and their truth eludes us. We will never be able to actually see a black hole with the naked eye, but through experiments we can be relatively sure that they do exist. The actual Definition of a black hole is kind of sketchy, but most people say that they are just a non-dimensional (or very small diameter) singularity (A singularity is "a point in space-time in which the space-time curv...

    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 ...

    The term blackhole is misleading, as they are not holes, but heavy, dense stellar bodies. The more dense, and massive an object, the more it warps the fabric of space-time, creating ever deepening gravity wells. These gravity wells draw in other stellar bodies, adding their mass to that of the blackhole, increasing it's gravity, and the size of what is called the event horizon. The event horizon is the distance from the singularity that the gravitational effects weaken to the point where light c...

    Black Black Holes Black Holes Black holes are one of the more bizarre and intriguing predictions of Einstein's theory of gravity. Surprisingly, there is now a great deal of observational evidence that black holes do exist, both in binary star systems and at the center of most galaxies, including our own. Although we are gaining more knowledge of black holes, they still remain one of the strangest things anyone has ever heard of, and we may never know what exactly one of these things are and can ...

    "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 ...

    Our solar system consists of ten planets revolving around the Sun. The Sun serves as a magnet that uses its gravitational pull to hold the solar system together. If the Sun were to disappear, what would hold the planets together? The answer might be a black hole. A black hole is a theorized body whose gravity is so strong that even light can't escape from within it (Shipman 64). If light can't escape from a black hole, then it must be invisible – therefore how can we know that the black ho...
