A black hole is a region of space from which nothing, not even light, can escape. It is the result of the deformation of spacetime caused by a very compact mass. Around a black hole there is an undetectable surface which marks the point of no return. This surface is called an event horizon. It is called “black” because it absorbs all the light that hits it, reflecting nothing.
A black hole is my favorite phenomenon. I’m just completely intrigued as to what lies inside of the thing.
Furthermore it is so interesting to know that a black hole is the result of a star dying. It’s sort of poetic that the death of a thing that gives light results in a thing that devours all even light itself… Either that or the star turns into a white dwarf.
