Hubble Space Telescope Amount Of Energy
1,880 wordsAn image of the core of the Whirlpool galaxy M 51 taken by the Wide Field Planetary Camera onboard the Hubble Space Telescope. It shows an immense ring of dust and gas which is thought to surround and hide a giant black hole, 1 million times the mass of the Sun, in the center of the galaxy. The ring forms an accretion disc of gas, about 100 light years across, falling toward the black hole. The two brighter areas perpendicular to the widest dark lane are two jets of particles accelerated by the ...

Miles Per Second Speed Of Light
1,615 wordsOur universe is a vast abyss, always expanding without bound. Many objects in space are exciting and intriguing. Mysterious surround many findings and cosmologists, astrophysicists, and astronomers work to obtain a better understanding of these strange phenomena. One great mystery is that of the black hole, which since the early 1960? s has been the object of many scientists? work, but has been dated to be the topic of discussion since 1783, when a astronomer named John Michell first recorded hi...

Force Of Gravity Gravitational Pull
1,033 wordsThere are many theories predicting how the universe will end. These theories are based on one four basic principles. The first principle being that the universe continues in an endless cycle. The next is that the universe will stay at its current size. The third is the universe will continue to expand endlessly. The final principle, states that the universe will collapse on itself. The first theory is based on the fact that the universe is oscillating. The universe currently is expanding outward...

Black Hole Event Horizon
767 wordsString theory is one of the most exciting and profound developments in modern theoretical physics. Unfortunately it is a highly technical subject that can only be well understood using the tools of Quantum Field Theory. It also doesn't hurt to know some mathematics like Group Theory, Differential Geometry, and Algebraic Geometry. Needless to say this is prohibitive for most people who are far too busy doing other things. String theory is to be a theory of quantum gravity, then the average size o...

20 Th Century Neutron Stars
1,393 wordsThe 20 th century saw a great many new discoveries regarding celestial phenomena in the universe. One of these entities, which has only recently been encountered, is the Black Hole. These are formed when a star which has consumed all its fuel collapses in on itself, eventually turning into a black hole with infinite density and zero volume and an immensely powerful magnetic field. We are unable to see black holes even with the most powerful telescope, because their gravitational pull is so stron...

1,558 wordsBlack Holes Every day we look into the night sky, wondering and dreaming what lies beyond our galaxy. Within our galaxy alone, there are millions upon millions of stars. This may be why it interest us to learn about all that we cannot see. Humans have known the existence of stars since they have had eyes, and see them as white glowing specks in the sky. The mystery lies beyond the white glowing specks we see but, in the things we cannot see in the night sky such as black holes. Before I begin to...

Back In Time Second Law Of Thermodynamics
1,746 wordsThroughout the ages, outstanding physicists, to the movies, to some of the greatest science fiction novels of all time, have pondered the idea of time-travel. The thought of actually being able to travel to another time or universe has long since enthralled, enveloped, and overwhelmed some of the greatest minds in the history of physics. No one person can actually prove any of their theories, but a few actually make sense. Meaning that they do not violate the laws of physics. One of the main the...

1,650 words... Royal Society, Britains most prestigious scientific body, founded in 1660. Having just turned thirty-two years old, he was one of the youngest scientists to receive this honor (Hewitt). If black holes were slowly turning their mass into radiation, might a black hole eventually evaporate into space? Hawking published a paper entitled Black Hole Explosions? . The paper looked at this possibility. Hawking believed that the ordinary kind of black hole, made from a massive star, pulled in matter ...

724 wordsKristy Pryzmont May 5 th, 2001 Astronomy HWK # 4 ASTR 220 1. There is evidence that supports the hypothesis that the Milky Way Galaxy has a massive black hole at its core. At the center of our very own galaxy is a mysterious source of energy. Vast amounts of radiation pour from this compact source which may be a Supermassive Black Hole. Astronomers found an intense radio source with strings of other radio sources clustered about it in the direction of the galactic center. The intense source was ...

3,151 wordsI. Introduction 1. Theory of Black Holes Black holes are one of the least understood phenomenons in the galaxy yet the secrets contained within the black hole could revolutionize the field of physics. Black holes are formed when an enormously massive star, most likely a neutron star, collapses in on itself. This happens because when the star dies all the energy generated from the sun s fusion reaction that was formerly pushing outward suddenly stops. When the outward force stops, the sun has so ...

Theory Of Relativity Black Hole
1,924 wordsWith all the excitement surrounding the new Star Wars movie, it is a big day for lovers of science fiction. But how much does the average person really understand about beaming up; phaser's and photons; wormholes and warp drive? How powerful are these fantasies compared to the real thing? If theories of their existence are true, black holes are the most powerful force in the known physical universe; however, do they even exist? Most scientists believe so, but by their very nature, black holes ar...

559 wordsBlack holes by supernova Firstly, a black hole isnt really a hole at all, but thats the easiest way to think of its effects on the rest of the universe. Take a star thats at least thirty times larger than our sun and make it explode (called a supernova). Stars do that at the end of their lifetime, sometimes leaving a remnant of the violent explosion. The nature of the remnant depends on its mass. If the remnant is less than 1. 4 solar masses, it will become a white dwarf, a kind of hot dead star...

Neutron Stars Black Hole
299 wordsBlack Holes area region of space-time, which nothing can escape, even light. It is impossible to see a black hole directly because no light can escape from them; they are black. But there are good reasons to think they exist. When a large star has burnt all its fuel it explodes into a supernova. The stuff that is left collapses down to an extremely dense object known as a neutron star. We know that these objects exist because several have been found using radio telescopes. If the neutron star is...

M P H Black Hole
3,742 wordsBlack holes are objects so dense that not even light can escape their gravity, and since nothing can travel faster than light, nothing can escape from inside a black hole. Loosely speaking, a black hole is a region of space that has so much mass concentrated in it that there is no way for a nearby object to escape its gravitational pull. Since our best theory of gravity at the moment is Einsteins general theory of relativity, we have to delve into some results of this theory to understand black ...
