Have you ever taken the time to reflect and glaze upon the night sky, conjecturing and dreaming of what lies beyond our planet? Our universe also known as the Milky Way Galaxy is very miscellaneous and unique. With many marvelous wonders, the Milky Way Galaxy holds about mysterious belongings that are very challenging for human minds to understand due to the many complications that arise when we try to examine and explore the principles of space. One of the universe biggest mysteries is that of the ever indescribable, black hole. By definition, a black hole is a “celestial body so dense that light cannot escape its gravitational pull. It is formed when a star gravity causes it to collapse into itself.”(Oracle 1)There’s been a myth about black holes that has caught my attention and in this essay I will discuss such myth and explain the truths and false parts of the myth. Thus the myth states that once captured by a black hole there is no escape. For it is said that there is a great inward pull of gravity that is so overwhelming, which allows any matter or energy to disappear from the universe.
In an article, written by Physics professor Tarun Biswas of Newpaltz State University, he provides details and examples on how can escape the unbreakable black hole. He stats, the “no escape myth has been believed by many individuals due to the misinterpretation of a feature geodesics within the black hole”(Biswas 1) Dr. Tarun explains that an object that enters the atmosphere of a black hole at any angle will be attracted greatly by the center of the black hole due to its geodesics (geometry of curves). Geodesic is defined as the shortest possible line between two points. Though the...

- III. BLACK HOLE IN MANET In black hole attack, malicious nodes absorb all data, transmitted by source node to destination instead forwarding the data to the next node. In AODV protocol Black hole attack is classified into two categories: Black hole attack caused by RREP and black hole attack caused by RREQ. A. Black hole attack caused by RREQ Following things happen when black hole attack form by malicious nodes or attacker while sending fake RREQ messages: • Attacker change the originator IP address in RREQ to the originating node’s IP address....

- Just a hundred years ago in 1915, was the time Einstein created his theories of general relativity, thus the makings of what is known today. These theories helped predict that black holes, actually occupy the universe vastly (Black Holes). Because black holes are virtually invisible to the human eye, since not even light can escape their clutches, it is hard to understand something that can’t be seen or even assume it exists. The concept of black holes can be traced back to 1795, to Pierre Simon Laplace, who originally proposed the idea.... [tags: albert einstein, dense orb, black hole, stars]

- The Black Hole - Original Writing A news flash came up on the television after the body of an elderly man was found with part of his body missing . It was not thought that the body had been there long before it was discovered . The police was appealing to the public for any information to come forward . The police officer who was assigned to the case was Joe Freeman . He had been with the force for a few years and had already successfully dealt with two other suspicious deaths in the past, so it was thought that he would be the best man to deal with this case to bring it to an early close ....

- When a star has exhausted its stellar fuel supply, it will collapse under its owngravitation. Depending on the mass the star will end up as a white dwarf or an even more compact neu-tron star. If the stars mass is above the Tolman–Oppenheimer–Volkof limit of approximate-ly 1.5 to 3.0Mʘ (Bombaci 1996), a stable neutron star may not be achieved, the collapse will continue, forming a black hole (BH) when reaching r < 2GM/c2, a radius smaller than the Schwartzschild radius where G is the gravitational constant, M the mass of the object and c the speed of light....

- The magnificent life of a black hole. The black hole is a mystery that you will want to learn about. A black hole does many wonderful things in outer space. Black holes in outer space have been a mystery for years. There are many questions such as how is a black hole born and how does a black hole grow. What is a black hole. A black hole is a dead star in outer space. It is where planets and stars disappear at. The gravity of a black hole is way too strong ( Aguilar 39). The black hole is a weird object in outer space and a black hole is formed when two giant stars or more collapse together and basically vacuum anything that comes near it ( Aguilar 39)....

- Adolescence is a period in life when individuals learn who they are and shape their identities in relation to their experiences and others around them, such as role models, peers, and family; as a consequence adolescence has always been considered a crucial developmental stage. In Black Hole “the bug” only affects teens, which suggests that the teen plague is not a metaphor for AIDs, but is actually the social, physical, and emotional turning point in which the character s mature from teens to young adults....

- The teens who occupy Charles Burns's graphic novel Black Hole are ill with what seem to be a sexually-transmitted disease that the teens identify as "the bug," an increasing number of teens become infected and reside with a group of teenagers that live in separate from their families and individuals uninfected remain students at their high school in uptown Seattle. The ill teens dwell in a tent village concealed in the outskirts of their community, in the forest and they manage to survive largely on the trash and infrequent aid of the well teens....

- 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....

- Introduction Black holes are one of the more interesting topics in astrophysics. Even though they are commonly accepted as being real, their actual existence has yet to have been proven2. Black holes are objects that have such a concentration of mass that nothing can escape their gravitational pull once it crosses the black hole's event horizon or Schwarzschild radius. The Schwarzschild radius is the radius where, for anything inside, the escape velocity is greater than the speed of light.... [tags: space black hole]

- Stars, comets, planets, they are all visible when you look up past our atmosphere. What if I told you that there were objects up there that you could not see, but had more gravity than an object 500 time larger than our sun. Objects, that are capable of swallowing whole planets within a split second of time. An object that would steal light right out of thin-air. These objects are more powerful than anything man made. Black holes are the most popular unknown object in science. A black hole is an area of space that has so much mass crammed in it that there is no way for an object to escape its gravitational pull.... [tags: Black Hole Essays]
