                                                  Black Hole Facts

Black holes are massive objects with a very strong gravitational force. The gravity’s pull is so huge that nothing can escape, not even light. This pull can even slow down time itself. There are three major types of black holes which are primordial black holes, stellar black holes, and supermassive black holes. They are the densest object in the existence. They emit radiation that is generally known as Hawking radiation. This radiation is named after Stephen Hawking as he was the first one to theorize this concept. A few scientists believe that every black hole contains a universe.

 Fast Facts: –

  • Sagittarius A* is a supermassive black hole that lied at the center of the Milky Way Galaxy. It is 4 million times more massive than the Sun.
  • If anything gets too close to a black hole then it gets sucked in and cannot escape ever.
  • Cygnus X-1 was the first ever candidate black hole. It was found in the year 1964.
  • Einstein’s Theory of Relativity predicted the formation of black holes.
  • A black hole can generate energy more efficiently than our Sun.
  • Contrary to popular belief, Earth will not be swallowed by any black hole in the near future.
  • Massive black holes could spawn new universes.
  • A black hole can even evaporate over time.
  • A high-energy light that cannot be seen by human eyes is produced when a black hole and a star are close together.
  • Black holes are hugely massive objects but they cover only a small region.
  • It is believed that black holes are formed when stars collapse in on themselves after the death.
