  • Event Horizon Of A Black Hole
    1,463 words
    If theories of their existence are true, black holes are the most powerful force in the known physical universe. Many people are familiar with the term black hole, but few people actually know anything about them. A black hole forms asa result of a massive star running out of fuel to burn (Chaisson, 193). Once the star is no longer exerting outward force by burning off gases, it begins to collapse under it's own intense, inward gravity (Chaisson, 193). It is like slowly letting the air out of a ...

    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...
  • Super Massive Black Hole With Part

    The right side of the figure illustrates schematically Doppler shift measurements made on the central region of M 87 that suggest rapid rotation of the matter near the center. The measurement was made by studying how the light from the disk is red shifted and blue shifted by the Doppler effect, using the Faint Object Spectrograph aboard the Hubble Space Telescope. Part of the swirling disk spins in Earth's direction and the other side spins away from Earth, thus causing opposite Doppler shifts. ...

    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 ...

    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? B...
