Death by Black Hole

 
No unread replies.No replies.

Make sure you do this discussion board activity AFTER reading Chapter 24, Black Holes and Curved Spacetime (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site..

This is an older video, but a fun way to describe what happens to objects, usually stars, gas, and dust, that cross the event horizon of a black hole.

This is a graded post, I'm not going to push you on this one, complete all the steps adequately and you will get 100%! 

Read Chapter 24 on Black Holes, then view the short video of Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson explaining death by black hole.  Share what you learned with a friend, family member, co-worker, or the person in line with you at the grocery store and collect any comments or questions they offer up.

Once back on the discussion board, start by presenting your own thoughts about the mechanisms of gravity at the intensity of a black hole and what comments and questions you received from other.  Find the post of another student and comment on what they shared.  If they came up with questions, try and help research the answers.
