Don't let the name fool you: a black hole is anything but empty space. Rather, it is a great amount of matter packed into a very small area - think of a star ten times more massive than the Sun squeezed into a sphere approximately the diameter of New York City. The result is a gravitational field so strong that nothing, not even light, can escape.

According to NASA, a black hole is a place in space where gravity pulls so much that even light can not get out. They are packed full of more mass, which is the amount of matter in space, in an area as little as an atom or.

Black holes are objects so dense, and with so much mass, that even light cannot escape their gravity. The existence of black holes has been theorised for more than years.

It is impossible to observe them directly, and astronomers had no way to test their theories until Hubble arrived. It offers accessible explanations of the science responsible for black holes and other mind-boggling physical phenomena in the universe.

No movie, novel, or other fictional treatment of black holes matches Professor Filippenko’s absorbing presentation of the actual science behind these amazing objects. Black holes are at the heart of some of the most intriguing phenomena in the universe.

In Black Hole Blues and Other Songs from Outer Space, Janna Levin recounts the fascinating story of the obsessions, the aspirations, and the trials of the scientists who embarked on an arduous, fifty-year endeavor to capture these elusive waves.

An experimental ambition that began as an amusing thought experiment, a mad idea, became the object Price: $ Igor Novikov has been hailed as "Russia's answer to Stephen Hawking." In this popular account of the cosmic importance of black holes, he explores the properties and significance of these mysterious phenomena, which represent the most condensed state of matter in the Universe.

Black Holes Orbiting Around Each Other Send Off Waves: Cosmos And Culture Just as two kids jumping on a trampoline around each other send waves rippling outwards on. Black holes, once considered to be of purely theoretical interest, play an important role in observational astronomy and a range of astrophysical phenomena.

This volume is based on a meeting held at the Space Telescope Science Institute, which explored the many aspects of black hole astrophysics. Written by world experts in areas of stellar-mass, intermediate-mass and supermassive 5/5(1).

There are two particularly interesting black holes. The first is a super-massive black hole discovered very recently and is one of the largest ever found, located in a giant galaxy more than million light years away. This black hole, named NGCis 21 billion times larger than our sun.

Harry Shipman of the University of Delaware wrote this book on black holes, quasars and other astronomical phenomena before they had become (if you'll forgive the pun) attractive subjects.

One of the stated purposes, from his introduction, is to supplement classical introductions to astronomy -- most introductory surveys of astronomy cover /5(2). A black hole is a region of spacetime exhibiting such strong gravitational effects that nothing—including particles and electromagnetic radiation such as light—can escape from inside it.

The theory of general relativity predicts that a sufficientl. Black holes, one of the most mystifying phenomena in the universe, are the epitome of camera-shy. The gravity of these extremely dense points in space is so strong that nothing, not even light.

Descriptions of recent scientific explorations of black holes and \"supermassive\" black holes will leave readers with additional inquiries that can be investigated with the support of the backmatter and references listed at the end of the book.
