Stars and Black Holes

The relationship between stars and black holes

Supergiant

The core of a star is radio active becasue the heat from the star is created by fusion happening within the star. When the core's hydrogen runs out the red giant expands and becomes a red supergiant. A supergiant has a much quicker evolution cycle then a smaller star. For example our sun is much smaller than a supergiant. A supergiant is several times as big as the earths orbital pattern around the sun.

Super Nova

A super nova is the middle stage between a star and a black hole. When the star explodes it creates a black hole through the process of a super nova occurring. A super nova is a big explosion in space that is the rebirth of a star into a black hole.

Black Holes

From the red supergiant for the next stage of the star is to explode and turn into a neutron star or a black hole. A black hole is very condensed matter. A black hole has no volume but has a mass this means gravity still applies to it. The gravity is so strong that nothing can escape from it. It is posible for a black hole to suck a star up into its time space ripple. Scientists believe that If you could survive being inside a black hole the black hole will slow down time. It is posible for a planet or star to be swallowed by a black hole. Stars and planets being consumed is the main visual aid for scientists to track where black holes are in our galaxy.
