Black holes are some of the most mysterious and fascinating objects in the universe. They are formed when massive stars collapse under their own gravity, creating a region of space where the gravitational pull is so strong that nothing can escape – not even light. This region is known as the event horizon, and beyond it lies the singularity, a point of infinite density where the laws of physics as we know them break down.
Despite their elusive nature, scientists have made significant progress in understanding the properties and behavior of black holes. Recent discoveries, such as the detection of gravitational waves from merging black holes, have provided new insights into the universe and its workings.
Explore the latest discoveries about black holes, the technologies and methods scientists use to study them, and the theoretical implications of these mysterious objects. From the characteristics of black holes to their formation and what happens when objects get too close, we’ll delve deep into the enigma of black holes and uncover some of the universe’s most fascinating secrets.
