THE RIDDLE OF BLACK HOLES
The most mysterious object in the universe must certainly be the invisible and inconceivably dense objects known as black holes.
Nothing can escape the grip of a black hole.
To imagine a black hole,think of an abyss-small in size and yet unimaginably dense-that swallows everything that comes within its reach. The formal defination of BLACK HOLE is a star that has collapsed under its own weightseveral times,becoming more compact each time.Because of its extreamly high density, this bottomless pit attracts even the smallest speck of dust that comes near. Nothing, absolutely nothing, can escape the pull of black hole- not even light. In fact, this is why it is known as a BLACK HOLE.
