Black Holes


Really Dumb



Black Holes
A black hole is like a giant vacuum cleaner in space that sucks up anything that gets near it. It’s so powerful that even light can’t escape its pull. Black holes can be as small as a single atom or as big as millions of times the size of the sun. An example of a black hole is a supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy, the Milky Way. It’s called Sagittarius A and it’s 4 million times the mass of the sun! That’s really big! An analogy to help you understand black holes is that they are like a bottomless pit. You can throw things in, but nothing will ever come out. Fun Fact: There are probably millions of black holes in the Milky Way, but we can’t see them because they don’t give off any light.
