If you were to take a step into a small black hole, your body would most closely resemble toothpaste being extruded out of the tube. Tidal forces are so strong at a black hole's threshold (called the "event horizon") that they would stretch your body into a string of atoms as you fell into the abyss. But if you fell into a somewhat larger black hole with less extreme tides, you could maintain your internal structure. Einstein's theory of time dilation suggests that if you looked forward…

In August of 2007, astronomers located a gigantic hole in the universe. This empty space, stretching nearly a billion light-years across, is devoid of any matter such as galaxies, stars, and gas, and neither does it contain the strange and mysterious dark matter, which can be detected but not seen. The large void in the Constellation Eridanus appears to be improbable given current cosmological models.  God told Job He was beyond the empty space... The Book of Job in the Holy Bible

Ever wonder what a black hole really is? Black holes can pull anything close by into them. They are like vacuums in outer space. You can read more science facts for kids about black holes here: http://easyscienceforkids.com/all-about-black-holes/

A recent study suggests that each black hole contains another entire universe! According to the new equations, the matter black holes absorb and seemingly destroy is actually expelled and becomes the building blocks for galaxies, stars, and planets in another reality. Essentially, every black hole contains a smaller alternate universe. And our universe might just exist inside a black hole of a galaxy in a much larger universe.

Physics is the best kind of science because you don't have to grow up and stop being enthralled by all the cool stuff out there. Child-like wonder is the best tool in the scientist's arsenal.

Shifting Coronas Around Black Holes | A supermassive black hole is depicted in this artist's concept, surrounded by a swirling disk of material falling into it. The purplish ball of light above the black hole, a feature called the corona, contains highly energetic particles that generate X-ray light. If you could really view the corona, it would be nearly invisible since we can't see its X-ray light.

Parallel universes - Black Hole connected to a theoretical White Hole. - If the theoretical science is correct, there are an infinite number of universes with same situations and different outcomes, do you believe?

Is Our Universe Inside Another Larger Universe? Theoretical physicist Nikodem Poplawski from Indiana University has proposed that perhaps our universe could be located within the interior of a wormhole which itself is part of a black hole that lies within a much larger universe.

Kip Thorne looks into the black hole he helped create and thinks, “Why, of course. That's what it would do.”  This particular black hole is a simulation of unprecedented accuracy. It appears to spin at nearly the speed of light, dragging bits of the universe along with it. (That's gravity for you; relativity is superweird.) In theory it was once a star, but instead of fading or exploding, it collapsed like a failed soufflé into a tiny point of inescapable singularity. A glowing ring orbiting…
