697 words - 3 pages

Everybody has their own "style." In James Hilton's Lost Horizon, the four travelers are their own person in every way. None of the four act in the same manner as another. Their different traits are displayed throughout the novel.The most "leader type" of them all is Conway, who is the one that everyone respects the most. Everyone comes to him with their problems or questions. During the time that they are all on the plane, he gives his answers to their questions with "the detached fluency of a university professor" (38). Conway is also very calm and easy-going. When all of the travelers are climbing the mountain, Mallinson complains. He wants to know what they are going to do. Conway replied smoothly "'there are times in life when the most comfortable thing is to do nothing at all'" (64). Also, when the voyagers resided in Shangri-La for a while, Conway is also very respectful to people.

He also respects his answer.Mallinson is a little different than Conway. He is the rowdy one who cannot sit still. He always wants to get something done about a situation. When they are all on the plane, he tries to fix their situation by playing the "big-dog" role by saying he is going to "tackle him (the pilot) right away" (46) to try and save them all. He's also the young one of the bunch, within his mid-twenties. Charles Mallinson is also extremely persistent. When Conway and Mallinson are on the plane in the beginning, he keeps telling Conway "the pilot wasn't taking a straight course" (22). He knows that something is wrong and out of the ordinary. He knows that the pilot is who he is supposed to be....

The effect of spacetime curvature near a black hole is such that lightcones are tilted so that the future lightcones tip toward the black hole. At the surface of the black hole (the event horizon), all rays emitted fall into the black hole. And no rays from the past are received from the black

Understanding Black Holes

All black holes are formed from the gravitational collapse of a star, usually having a great, massive, core. A star is created when huge, enormous; gas clouds bind together due to attractive forces and form a hot core, combined from all the energy of the two gas clouds (Caidin, The Book of Knowledge pp. 14). This energy produced is so
