Black Holes

What goes in, never comes out...

Some Information

  • Black holes are places where all the laws that make up the universe fall into chaos, whatever goes into a black hole is never seen again.
  • Its gravity is so large that even light cannot escape, hence the reason that they're black. Its also cause for the gravity lensing that distorts anything directly behind the black hole
  • If a black hole came into the solar system, everything would be thrown into chaos

Now this is scary

Observers falling into a black hole cannot avoid being carried into the singularity, once they cross the event horizon. They can prolong the experience by accelerating away to slow their descent, but only up to a point; after attaining a certain ideal velocity, it is best to free fall the rest of the way. When they reach the singularity, they are crushed to infinite density and their mass is added to the total of the black hole. Before that happens, they will have been torn apart by the growing tidal forces in a process sometimes referred to as spaghettification or the "noodle effect"
