What happens if humans enter a black hole?

What is a black hole?

 A black hole is a place in space that has so much gravitational pull that even light can't escape.  The matter inside the black hole is squeezed in a tiny space making the gravitational pull so strong.  When a star disappears it can turn into a black hole.  Since no light can escape a black hole you can't see one, they're invisible to the naked eye but if you get a special telescope you can kind of tell where they are in space.  The special tool can see how stars act different when they are by a black hole.

Types/parts of a black hole?


Stellar- Energy released by nuclear reactions heats the stellar interior. The pressure of the hot gas pushes out so that gravity and pressure balance exactly.

Supermassive- Astronomers think Supermassives grow. As material gets closer and closer to the event horizon, the material heats up and swirls around the hole. This accretion disk is visible to us. By measuring its motion, we can infer the mass of the black hole.

Mini- Theory suggests that miniature black holes might have formed in the early universe. But astronomers do not have any evidence of their existence. Miniature black holes have event horizons as small as the width of an atomic particle and might have been created during the Big Bang, the moment the universe was created. These miniature black holes contain as much matter as Mt. Everest.

Kerr- rotating black hole

Schwarzschild - Non-rotating black hole


Singularity - The collapsed core

Event horizon - The opening of the hole

Ergosphere - An egg-shaped region of distorted space around the event horizon (The distortion is caused by the spinning of the black hole, which "drags" the space around it.

Static limit- The boundary between the ergosphere and normal space

How does a black hole function?

This is how black holes function!!!

What happens if humans enter a black hole?!


   Black holes are without question some of the strangest places in the universe. So massive that they hideously deform space and time, so dense that their centers are called "points at infinity," and pitch- black because not even light can escape them, it isn't surprising that so many people wonder what it would be like to visit one.

It's not exactly a restive vacation spot, as it turns out.
