Black holes form by a relatively simple process.⠀ ⠀ A large star (>8 solar masses) will remain in stellar equilibrium—meaning that the energy generated by fusion reactions is sufficient to counter the force of gravity—until it reaches the fusion of iron. The fusion of iron produces no net energy output, so no further fusion can take place. The equilibrium of energy output and gravity is no longer, and the star collapses in on itself at speeds up to 23% that of light. The crushing weight of infalling matter compresses the star into a point of zero volume and infinite density called the singularity. During this compression, the temperature and pressure become so high that a cataclysmic explosion blows most of the remaining stellar material into space (Type II supernova). Left in the nebulous aftermath of this titanic explosion lies the singularity. A black hole is born.⠀ ⠀ According to Einstein’s mathematics of general relativity, the infinite gravity at the singularity results in the breaking down of space and time as we know them, and the current laws of physics can no longer be applied. The mass and energy that approach the singularity lose dimensionality entirely.⠀ ⠀ Since we cannot obtain data from beyond the event horizon, the gravitational singularity is completely theoretical and arises purely out of the mathematics of GR. Its mathematical existence may even prove a flaw in Einstein’s most brilliant theory and call for a united theory of quantum gravity. Quantum effects (physics at the smallest scale) likely become very important at the center of a black hole and general relatively is not compatible with quantum mechanics. A unified theory of quantum gravity may give us different answers to what actually lies behind the curtain of the event horizon, and it could be far stranger than we currently know.

Name of Galaxy is Cosmic Eyelash 👁️... Do you think it has right name? 🔭🌌 . . SMM-J2135-0102 (also known as the Cosmic Eyelash) is a galaxy discovered using the Large Apex Bolometer Camera (LABOCA) of the Atacama Pathfinder Experiment (APEX) telescope. The object was discovered by a group of researchers during an observation session of the galaxy supercluster, MACSJ2135-010217. The cluster causes a gravitational lens effect that amplified SMM-J2135-0102 by 32 times. It was possible to identify four molecular clouds whose solar luminosities were 100 times higher than that of similar regions in the Milky Way. This suggests a process of star formation that is 250 times faster. . . 🍁For such amazing content follow us 🔭🌌🚀 Follow: @cosmosopedia 🌠 Follow: @cosmosopedia 🌀 Follow: @cosmosopedia 🌠 Follow: @cosmosopedia 🌀 . . #constellation #deepspace #deepsky #Galaxy #milkywaychasers #milkywaygalaxy #hubble #universetoday #NASA #spacepics #astrophoto #hubbletelescope #spacelovers #nightskyphotography #cosmology #astronomia #nasa _apod #neildegrassetyson #astronomy #cosmos #cosmiclove #cosmosopedia #blackholes #toinfinityandbeyond #spaceexploration #solarsystem #astrophysics #sciencefacts #milkyway #planetearth

“Devil Horns” sunrise was captured in Qatar last month during a partial eclipse. Capture by Elias Chasiotis.⠀ ⠀ The image shows the sun rising over the ocean mostly blocked out by the moon, so that it almost resembles two curved triangles.⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ Are you ready to explore Space 🔭 ⠀ ⠀ Image credit: @eliaschasiotis
