    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 ...

    REALM, S OF TIME AND SPACE The theory of relativity has been called the greatest triumph ever achieved by the disciplined imagination. When it was first proposed, in 1905, it shattered the traditional concepts of space-time, energy, and matter. Twelve years later its extended version challenged Newton's theory of gravity, replacing it with the concept of curved space. Its mathematical expressions disclosed some the nature's most intimate secrets. One of its equations became the backbone of the ...

    Light travels at about 186, 000 miles per second. Now, by looking at this number you may conclude that light travels really fast. Sure it does compared to the fastest that we can go or anything that we have ever made can go. But if you look at how long it takes light to travel distances you probably won't think it's so fast anymore. The distance from Earth to the Moon is about 239, 000 miles. That means that light takes 1. 2 seconds to travel that far. Yeah that is still fast you may say. But l...

    Our universe is a vast abyss, always expanding without any end. Many objects in space are exciting and interesting. One great mystery is the black hole. Ever since the early 1960 they have been the object of many scientists work. But has been talked about among great minds since 1783, when a astronomer named John Michell first recorded his findings of the black holes. Questions still surround these holes like what are black holes, how are they formed, and what happens if you were to go in one? ...
