Black Holes Journal Entry: Cowdonia Space Researchers
January 10th 1971: What we found last night was greater than we could have imagined. The thing that we found was actually a "black hole" a theory created by Einstein in the 1920's. It was named by John Wheeler in 1967.
January 11th 1971: The "black hole" we found is actually in the middle of our galaxy. We now believe that there are millions of black holes in the universe.
January 12th 1971: We didn't find anything on our last night study these black holes. What we did find is very interesting and will be used as the building blocks of a more indepth study on black holes. These studies will bring forward new and modern facts about black holes.
The darkness taking over the space
A dark hole in the midst that it would replace
A cyclone takes and captures all it can
A billion and more stars destroyed like Nagasaki in Japan
They can convert time itself,
slowing it down from every second to hour
All of its details may never be known
so black holes are mysteries ready to unfold.
Cowdonia Science Report: Black holes
This week’s NASA report is reporting on black holes. Black holes were first theorized by Albert Einstein in the late 1920's, the name black hole comes from John Wheeler who named it in 1967. These black holes are formed when the center of a star like our sun collapses on itself. This collapse forms a supernova which is an explosion and the parts of the star are blasted into space. The size of a black hole varies but most of them are billions of times larger than stars in our galaxies. Black holes have many effects on the universe both good and bad. First they can slow down time itself with its massive amount of gravitational force. So if a black hole were to be close to earth the whole planet would be in so called "slow motion". Next if you were ever to get close to a black hole you would want to stay away from its event horizon which is its border. The event horizon is where a black hole becomes dangerous. If a human where to be inside the event horizon their body would be stretched and undetectable in less than a second. Another thing that has to be careful of a black hole is a planet. When ever a planet floats into the zone of a black hole they are likely to have met there demise. The black hole will suck up the planet and it will be never seen of again. In contrast to sucking things in a black hole is also capable of the exact opposite. Some black holes have been found to spit out objects such as planets in something that scientist have called a "white hole". Now on to how black holes are shaped many think they are shaped like a funnel but this is not true. Black holes have been found to be shaped like spheres rather than funnels. Due to this this makes blacks holes have a greater resemblances to stars and planets. Also there are many different types of black holes. Such as: a spinning black hole, electrical black hole, and a spinning electrical black hole. Black holes also make sound but the sound is made in a very unusual way. The sound is made when a black hole pulls something in. Its event horizon will supercharge the speed of particles of the object sucked in which creates sound. Believe it or not black holes have a huge benefit in our lives and we don't even know it. Black holes actually create elements that are essential to life such as carbon. The way they do this is by breaking down matter they suck in into subatomic particles which creates elements. The laws of physics it tells us how things work in our life such as gravity but not in a black hole. These laws may just have been flushed out because in a black hole with zero volume none of those laws of physics are in use. Next, many people have wondered what is in the middle of a black hole. In the middle of a black hole there is nothing except large amounts of matter. This goes against the popular theory that there is a tunnel in the middle of every black hole. We are getting to the end of this report and we bring to one of the craziest things you will ever hear. According to our researchers a black holds a universe inside itself. This means that we at this moment are living inside a black hole. Well this is just a theory but it could lead to many other discoveries about the universe. Finally a black hole also meets its end when it is time. At the end of its lifespan a black hole will evaporate into space and will never be seen again. Thank you for reading another copy of our science report and goodbye.
