Proving The Exstance And Current Theorums Of The "Black Hole"

1224 words - 5 pages

What if I told you the most powerful object in the universe was no bigger than a city? What if I told you it had enough power nothing could escape its grasp, even light? What is this, you ask. A black hole. (Asimov, 1-196)What is a black hole? A black hole is an old star that has run out of fuel. The pressure created by its fuel keeps the star from collapsing in on itself, but since it runs out of hydrogen, it collapses on itself and becomes so small it literally disappears from the universe. The star must be bigger than a medium sized star otherwise it would just burn out and become a black dwarf star. (Asimov, 1-196)Now that the black hole has crushed itself, what does it do? Well, a black hole (to be classified as a black hole) has at least three solar masses. That is, the mass of three solar systems such as our milky way. Its gravitational pull is so great that even light cant escape. It just sits here collecting particles from the universe that passes it. (Asimov, 1-196)Now what is so hard about studying black holes? They don't emit light. Everything in the universe we have ever studied out in space before "dark matter"(dark matter is matter in the universe that emits no light) was found either produced light or reflected it. Like our planets, they reflect light from our sun, and other stars out there produce their own light. So how do scientists know where they are if we can't see them? With technology that has onlystarted developing in the last century has helped scientists a lot. To find black holes they use machines that detect radiation from the sky and map it out. Black holes give off a ton of radiation in an extremely hard and difficult way to explain. Let's just put that that things the black holes consume when being sucked in collide with other matter at extremely hard forces and that produces radiation. (Asimov, 1-196)Now that you have a general idea on what a black holes is, let's give you some ideas some scientists have on black holes. First, some scientists still debate that black holes exist, but I believe the evidence lies stronger that they do exist. Now there is theories worm holes (a combination of a black hole and white hole (I'll get to this in a little bit)) are portals to another universe or dimension or something. Think of time as a flat piece of paper. Put two points on it and what is the shortest way to go from A to B? A straight line. That would be time, as we know it. Now bend the ends of the paper so it makes a U shape. The shortest distance now is a straight line that only touches the paper at point A and B, the rest is...who knows. Scientists believe if you could survive the forces (which of now we couldn't possibly) of something like that that it would take you to a different time. (Website one)Of what we know, this would be what would happen to you if you came into a black hole. At first, you don't feel any gravitational forces at all. Since you're in free fall, every part of your body and your spaceship is...

Proving the Existence of God Essay

1100 words - 4 pages two arguments approach the problem of proving God's existence in two completely different ways.
