I think my new favorite “fascination” is black holes. Do you know anything about them? I dont! I know the basics, and the basics scare the crap out of me.
I mean think about it. Black hols are basically a region of “space” that has such a strong gravitational pull on it (for some odd reason) that absolutely nothing can escape it once it “falls” into it. When you enter into this thing called the “event horizon” on it…you’re SCREWED! Basically, time stretches, and it like deforms/stretches out your body because the gravity is sooo different than what it is here on earth. If you fall into this thing, you will die. Your body will completely be ripped into pieces. I think I head a term called something like “spaghetification” (yeah, I probably spelled that wrong)..but man, does that give you some imagery! You’re body (or even any object that goes into it) will turn into strings of spaghetti! Isn’t that a bit umm, creepy to you? Think about it, black holes are so powerful that even light cannot escape. Light is the fastest thing known earth.
If you want to learn more, just google it. There’s plenty of stuff about it. If you’re into physics, astronomy, or just like learning random (AWESOME) stuff, check out black holes if you haven’t already. I don’t think you’ll regret it.
