Black holes


Really Smart



Black holes
Black holes are like giant cosmic vacuum cleaners that suck up anything and everything in their path. They have such intense gravitational pull that even light can’t escape them, so they’re basically invisible. They’re formed when a giant star dies and collapses in on itself, leaving behind a point in space with an incredibly strong gravitational force. The core of a black hole is called a singularity and it can be millions of times more massive than the sun! Fun fact: the first black hole ever discovered in 1971 was named Cygnus X-1. Just think of it as a giant cosmic dust buster that can suck up planets, stars, and even light!
