Stanley Yelnat in Louis Sachar’s Holes - ... He is an average kid that faced an issue of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. He was placed under blame for theft of a baseball player’s shoes (Bill) His parents told him it was because of their family’s long run of bad luck that has been around for centuries. Stanley finds himself in a juvenile center for teenagers named Camp Green Lake, which hasn’t seen a single drop of water in decades (Hearne). From the first minute that Stanley steps from the bus, he already has a fear deep in the pit of his stomach that makes him sick....   [tags: Holes Essays]

The Origins of Super-massive Black Holes - ... So this evidence of idea doesn't support the fact that super massive black holes were created through accretion. So by this idea it might also be the fact that super massive black holes were created straight after the big bang theory. Yet none of these theories are definite and more research has to be done to find the true fact about how super massive black holes were originated. (Millis 2014) From the research of NRAO in New Mexico, it is shown that dwarf galaxies may give some clues to the origin of super massive black holes....   [tags: Black Holes Essays]

Physics of Black Holes - Black holes - the strange scientific phenomenon that has astounded physicists and astronomers alike for decades. Popular subjects in science fiction novels, black holes are one of the greatest enigmas of the scientific world. Even today, the concept of a super-dense ball of matter that not even light can escape from is somewhat farfetched, and many scientists disagree with each other about nearly every aspect of a black hole. This project will attempt to shed some light on these mysterious formations, and will inform you the reader of the most popular and widely accepted theories surrounding them....   [tags: physics space black holes] 841 words

It focuses on boys who go to Camp Green Lake because they have committed a criminal act, and all sorts of things happen to Stanley whilst he is there. The four characters he makes memorable are: Stanley, Zero, Mr Sir and the Warden. Sachar makes the Warden very memorable by the fact that she is a very vicious person.

I can remember asking my parents when I was at about the age of eight or nine what a black hole was, and what was its purpose.

Black holes, whose existence was only verified in the early 1990’s, have fascinated scientists ever since Einstein first proposed the theoretical concept in the 1930’s. A black hole is an object so tiny, but also so dense, that it has the power to pull planets, stars, and even light into its core, and ultimately destroy everything in its path. Over the past decade much has been discovered about these enigmas of space and time; however, many of these recent discoveries lead to more unanswered questions....   [tags: Astronomy, research papers]

Myriad Details of Black Holes - Introduction Definition: Black holes are rapidly spinning stellar bodies of incredible mass. A typical black hole has a mass many times that of our own sun , but the size approaches point density. For all intents and purposes, black holes are singularities, a fact that many physicists find contradictory, since in general the universe abhors a singularity. They are formed when a large sun exhausts its fuel and collapses to a very small volume. Of course, conservation of angular momentum and mass hold true, so as the star shrinks, it rotates faster and faster, and its density becomes greater and greater....   [tags: physics science space]

Physics of Black Holes - What are Black Holes. A black hole is theorized to be a collection of collapsed matter of whose gravitational pull is so strong that not even light can escape its force. The matter is is forced in a very, very tiny area and therefore the matter is very dense. Since light cannot escape, they are considered to be truly black. This, obviously, makes it hard to detect an actual black hole, and therefore, have only been theorizd to exist. These theories are slowly turning into "conclusive evidence." This evidence includes the particle dust given off from matter entering the black hole, as well as observations of orbits of bodies near the black hole....   [tags: physics science space] 1007 words

Black Holes - When a star "dies" it can do many different things. It can form a neutron star, expand to a red giant and shrink into a white dwarf, or sometimes collapse upon itself to form a black hole. This is mostly dependent on the density of the star. When massive stars, those twenty times the mass of our Sun or more die, they must either exhaust all of their excess mass or implode upon themselves and form black holes. Gravity overwhelms even the nuclear forces. The gravitational force becomes so strong that nothing can escape it, even photons of light, hence the name "black" hole....   [tags: physics science black hole] 717 words

Black Holes - If theories of their existence are true, black holes are the most powerful force in the known physical universe. Many people are familiar with the term black hole, but few people actually know anything about them. A black hole forms as a result of a massive star running out of fuel to burn (Chaisson, 193). Once the star is no longer exerting outward force by burning off gases, it begins to collapse under it’s own intense, inward gravity (Chaisson, 193).

He also predicted that even though the sun had shrunk its mass and weight would remain the same, which means that the planets would continue on their orbits, uneffected. Schwarzchild still questioned if stars could become this compact. In 1934 W. Baade and F.
