Black holes are incredibly difficult objects to understand, partially because their very existence seemingly challenges the physical laws of the Universe. Because of their extreme nature, various peculiarities arise that give scientists pause.
An international team of astronomers was able to measure the radius of a black hole for the first time.
Event Horizon -- The event horizon is a boundary beyond which information will never reach an observer. An event horizon is a mathematical construct and not a physical object and a person passing through an event horizon will not notice any odd behavior. From an outside observer however, an object passing though an event horizon will appear redder and dimmer and will appear to freeze at the moment the object passes the event horizon. An event horizon can form around a gravitational...
Black Hole -- Black holes are objects so dense that not even light can escape their gravity. They are believed to form from the gravitational collapse of astronomical objects containing two or more solar masses. Astronomical observations suggest that the center of most galaxies, including our own Milky Way, contain supermassive black holes containing millions to billions of solar masses. Black holes are predictions of Einstein's theory of general relativity. In particular, they occur...
