Top 10 Scary Black Holes Facts

Imagine matter packed so densely that nothing can escape. Not a moon, not a planet and not even light. But how did black holes come to be, and why are they important?

30 Facts About Black Holes

The most intriguing, the most inspiring and the most elusive thing in the entire universe known to mankind is the Black Hole. There are hundreds of questions about Black Holes that are yet to be answered. Some of them have been answered while some others are still within theoretical frameworks and remaining keep giving birth to numerous science fictions we encounter on a day-to-day basis. So, what exactly are these Black Holes? What do we know about these entities?

Black holes are among the strangest things in the universe. They are massive objects — collections of mass — with gravity so strong that nothing can escape, not even light. The most common types of black holes are the stellar-mass and supermassive black holes. Stellar-mass black holes are created when massive stars explode, leaving behind a black hole with the mass of just a few suns. Supermassive black holes exist in the hearts of galaxies and usually contain the mass equivalent of millions of suns.

25 Crazy Facts About Black Holes

A black hole is formed when a large star starts running out of fuel and begins to collapse under its own gravity. Such a star may become a white dwarf or a neutron star, but if the star is sufficiently massive then it may continue shrinking eventually to the size of a tiny atom, known as a gravitational singularity. The singularity at the core of a black hole may shrink to a size smaller than an atom, and eventually become an infinitely small point in space containing infinite mass. Here the gravitational force is so strong that the spacetime surrounding the singularity is bent to infinite curvature, and scientists are left searching for a good quantum theory of gravity to explain what is truly going on inside these incredibly dense objects. As time elapses, the light subsequently becomes red shifted and dimmer as its wavelength becomes longer, eventually disappearing from the sight of the observer as it becomes infrared radiation, then radio waves.

A theory! If you do not know what a theory is, ask your parents or your teacher first Black holes are not a theory anymore, they are now a fact! So what are Black holes? So read on further for a lesson on Black holes. So, Black holes are, well Black for a start. Which means in space they cannot actually be seen, but only detected by study through technology.
