A very good morning to one and all present here. Today, I’ll be talking about the topic ‘Black Holes’.
What is a Black Hole? A Black Hole, according to NASA, is “a place in space where gravity pulls so much that even light can not get out.”
In layman’s terms, black holes are voids where gravity is unusually strong. Generally, these Black Holes are formed as a result of huge stars collapsing into themselves. In these cases, the gravitational pull is so strong that not even light can escape through it, making it a black void or a black hole.
Recently, on November 9, 2022, astronomers made a discovery of the closest Black Hole to Earth. It is reported that “this is the first unambiguous detection of a dormant stellar-mass black hole in the Milky Way.” This Black Hole is named ‘Sagittarius A’.
