DETECTION AND OBSERVATION

Scientists and astronomers cannot directly observe black holes with telescopes which recognize x-rays, light, or any other electromagnetic radiation. Nonetheless they can deduce the existence of black holes and study them by perceiving their influence on other nearby matter. For an instance, if a black hole passed through a haze of interplanetary material, it would lure the material inward in a manner called accretion. (See photographs below)

A process similar can take place when a normal star approaches a black hole. In this situation, the black hole has the ability to rip apart the star while pulling it in the direction to itself. When this happens, the matter that is attracted heats up and quickens causing x-rays to be emitted through the space void. Current detections offer various fascinating evidence proving that black holes root a vivid influence on the neighboring objects proximate to them.

CONCLUSION

Black holes are indeed one of science’s unknown mysterious. Many questions arise regarding black holes yet they are answered with no response. It is virtually impossible to send a human being or any other satellite inside a black hole as once they get pulled in, communication is practically impossible. As black holes are fundamentally the end point of all matter, energy and gravity, they ultimately dominate the regression of the universe.
