No Escape: Dive Into a Black Hole (Infographic)  by Karl Tate - When matter is compressed beyond a certain density, a black hole is created. It is called black because no light can escape from it. Some black holes are the tombstones of what were once massive stars. An enormous black hole is thought to lurk at the center of the Milky Way galaxy.

Wow- so beautiful! Black hole. three female goddesses showed me one this morning...why?astonishing that i was not pulled in.

The Hubble Space Telescope Just Snapped Photos of the Biggest Black Hole We've Ever Observed

The Hubble Space Telescope Just Snapped Photos of the Biggest Black Hole We've Ever Observed

Not sure if this is real cause it looks like the worm hole in that one movie... Original caption: "The Hubble Space Telescope Just Snapped Photos of the Biggest Black Hole We've Ever Observed"

In August of 2007, astronomers located a gigantic hole in the universe. This empty space, stretching nearly a billion light-years across, is devoid of any matter such as galaxies, stars, and gas, and neither does it contain the strange and mysterious dark matter, which can be detected but not seen. The large void in the Constellation Eridanus appears to be improbable given current cosmological models.  God told Job He was beyond the empty space... The Book of Job in the Holy Bible

An artist's illustration of the black hole at the heart of a quasar in the distant universe. The biggest black hole known to exist lives in the nearby galaxy M87. It's 2,000 times bigger than the Milky Way's supermassive black hole.

UPDATE: Hawking’s new suggestion is that the apparent horizon is the real boundary–a place that grows or shrinks according to how much matter is consumed or radiation is given off. Ultimately, as Hawking writes, “The absence of event horizons means that there are no black holes — in the sense of regimes from which light can’t escape to infinity.” - Credit: NASA - Read more: http://www.fromquarkstoquasars.com/stephen-hawking-bombshell-black-holes-as-we-know-them-do-not-exist/

If you were to take a step into a small black hole, your body would most closely resemble toothpaste being extruded out of the tube. Tidal forces are so strong at a black hole's threshold (called the "event horizon") that they would stretch your body into a string of atoms as you fell into the abyss. But if you fell into a somewhat larger black hole with less extreme tides, you could maintain your internal structure. Einstein's theory of time dilation suggests that if you looked forward…
