Black holes rewrite galaxy theory

Black Holes are so dense, and produce such intense gravity, that even light can not escape. Theoretical physicists predict that there are situations under which light can escape (which is called Hawking radiation).

Looking through the physics book I came across the black hole. If you went through a black hole your body would be stretched, flattened, and eventually pulled apart.

A BLACK HOLE IN SPACE

A BLACK HOLE IN SPACE

[The black hole] teaches us that space can be crumpled like a piece of paper into an infinitesimal dot, that time can be extinguished like a blown-out flame, and that the laws of physics that we regard as 'sacred,' as immutable, are anything but. ~~~ John Wheeler

whirlpool - black hole facts

Learn black hole facts, like what we mean by “singularity,” and find out why we think black holes are real and not just a figment of general relativity.

February 11, 2016A computer simulation shows the collision of two black holes, a tremendously powerful event detected for the first time ever by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory, or LIGO. LIGO detected gravitational waves, or ripples in space and time generated as the black holes spiraled in toward each other, collided, and merged. This simulation shows how the merger would appear to our eyes if we could somehow travel in a spaceship for a closer lo...

A new study concluded that dark matter is made of black holes formed during the first second of our universe’s existence.

One black hole eating the other black hole.

When One Black Hole Eats Another. -- When two black holes are near each other, they will slowly orbit in a death circle. The larger black hole will eventually devour the other resulting in an enormous discharge of energy akin to the Big Bang

The Strangest Black Holes in the Universe

Researchers are attempting to create an Earth-size virtual instrument called the Event Horizon Telescope; a worldwide network of radio telescopes powerful enough to snap a picture of the supermassive black hole at the heart of our Milky Way galaxy.
