Black holes, what are they? Is it a big hole in outer space or a big ball of gas?Albert Einstein quoted that ” Black holes are where God divided by zero.” In 1961 physicist Karl Schwarzschild suggested that black holes were real. To prove that black holes were real. Ten years later in 1971 astronomer John Wheeler saw one for the first time.
There are three parts of a black hole. The first part is the outer event horizon, which is the border of the black hole and still able to consume light. Nextis the inner event horizon, which is stronger. The thrid and final is the singularity is the strongest and the center of the black hole.
Like many things in life, there are many varieties. Black holes have three stellar, intermediate and the supermassive. The stellar black hole is form whn a single star explodes and continues to compress. Next is the intermediate black hole is multiple starscollide in a chain reaction of explostion. Finally is the supermassive black hole which is forms hundreds or thousands of stars collade. Black holes are unique because they work by sucking in everything and anything.
They gain mass until hawking radiation eventually destorys them Hawking radiation, named after Stephan Hawking in 1974. It’s invisible particle pairs being created around the outer event horizon Normally, a particle, antiparticle pair form and they quickly inialate each other slowly decreasingthe black hole in mass. The purpose of Hawking radiation is to keep black holes intact. There are more mysterious facts about black holes. For the facts I have shared with you today are only the tip of the iceberg.
But no need to worry the closest black hole is only 27,000 light years away. As Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar quoted “The black holes of nature are the most perfect objects there are in the universe; the only elements in their constructions are our concepts of space and time”.
