The Invisible Space Shark
On Earth sharks sneak up on you and you usually don’t see them till their jaws are around you! Well, in space black holes are invisible and once you know its there it is two late to escape! Because its gravity is so strong nothing can escape it. Not even light. Black holes are the one thing that can bend light and everything else too for that matter.
Black holes are made from Neutron stars collapsing into them self’s. A Neutron star has so much pressure and gravity that it comes down on its self and when this happens a Black hole is formed. In a Black hole the gravity changes at every point. Its less on the outer edges then on the inner parts. The Only time you can see a Black hole is when it is eating. When a Black hole “eats” it is destroying a galaxy. The only way to find a Black hole is to mathematically plot it. Astronomers look for abnormal behaviors and movements in areas then you math. So all those years spent in math class are useful.
When entering a Black hole a process happens called spaghettification. This may sound fake or made up but that’s what its called. It is called this because when you are sucked into the Black hole gravity changes. The gravity at your feet is different from the gravity at your head. So your feet get stretched out and as you go further in the gravity gets stronger. So you turn into a noodle.
