Holes in space? Does our space have holes? Why am I calling them spooky? The holes that I’m talking about are actually a name given to some very powerful force that exists in Universe. The name is called BLACK HOLES by the scientists.
I call them spooky because they eat up everything that goes near them!! Yeah true! Black holes have immensely strong gravity.
Black holes are formed when an enormous star, many times bigger than sun, starts collapsing because of an explosion called supernova explosion. As a result of this, the star starts losing its size and volume and all its matter gets tightly packed in a small space. This makes the star very dense!
Black holes exist in the middle of big galaxies. May be there is one in the center of our galaxy, The Milky Way! Why not!!
