Black Holes in Life

“What is a black hole, and what would happen if you fell into one?
It’s a super-massive object left behind after the death of some stars from which nothing – not even light – can escape. If you fell into one, you’d be ripped apart, fried, or trapped forever. Possibly all three.” – (ScienceMuseum)

 

That moment when you’re down…
That moment when you’re sad but can’t cry…
That moment when you’re crumbling down inside…
That moment when you don’t know who to talk to…
That moment when you’re confused as hell…
That moment when you don’t know what to think…
That moment when you don’t know what to do…
That moment when you can’t decide…
That moment when you know you can get this through but don’t know how to deal with it…
That moment when you know you’re about to lose your loved one. For one more time. But can’t do anything about it…
That moment when you see your loved one is dying in front of you, but you can’t help…

 

“Black holes grow in mass by capturing nearby material. Anything that enters the event horizon cannot escape the black hole’s gravity. So objects that do not keep a safe distance get swallowed. Despite their reputation, black holes will not actually suck in objects from large distances. A black hole can only capture objects that come very close to it. They’re more like Venus’ Flytraps than cosmic vacuum cleaners. For example, imagine replacing the Sun by a black hole of the same mass. Permanent darkness would fall on Earth, but the planets would continue to revolve around the black hole at the same distance and speed as they do now.” – (HubbleSite)

 

“Starlight. I will be chasing the starlight. Until the end of my life. I don’t know if it’s worth it anymore. Our hopes and expectations. Black holes and revelations.” (Muse – Starlight)
