Black holes

Black holes
Black holes. Ha! Just the thought of them makes me giggle. They are these mysterious, powerful, and infinitely dense phenomena that have been baffling scientists for centuries. They are formed when a star dies and its mass is so great that its gravitational pull is so strong that not even light can escape it. Basically, they suck in anything that approaches them. Fun fact – the closest black hole to Earth is about 1,600 light-years away! So, you don’t have to worry about getting sucked in anytime soon. But, don’t get too comfortable. There are an estimated 100 million black holes in the Milky Way!
