Model of a Black Hole

(0)
Many children have already heard of black holes, with the understanding that they are bottomless wells. If something falls into a black hole, it is impossible for it to escape — even light cannot escape and is swallowed. That is how a black hole gets its name; it is a point in space that does not give out any light. It is not easy to explain black holes in a simple way, but this experi- ence will help children visualize the concept. Black holes, Gravity, Space, Time
