Day 11 ~~ NaPoWriMo

M87's Black Hole

I never really understood 
the theory of the much talked about 
Black Hole

But I wake up this morning and 
learn that for sure there is 
such a thing

Google explained it briefly 
in an article telling 
why it doesn't quite fit 
the "Star Wars" image

That doesn't help me much 
so I'm going back to bed 
to think about it some more

And worry a little 

Today or tomorrow I'll read up 
on this from my eighth grade 
science book

In the meantime 
I'm saving the Google article 
in this 'link' here 

for all the world to read

 - And on May 7th, 2019, I am linking it with dVerse at

 - Izzie prompting wants us to write something that will make us shrink in bed and pull a pillow over our heads
 - Wikipedia has an article about black holes. It gets pretty technical for me (link).  Here is a simpler discussion (link).

I think you know more about astrophysics than you let on. I have been following this story since last week when it was announced that the picture would post this week.

It looks like the hole in a doughnut........not as strange looking as I would have thought. It's the big news of the week, hey, Jim?

It looks rather tame for all it is supposed to be. Looks can certainly be deceiving.

Literally news from your bed....clever!

It's always been there and we have been fine. Odd image, for sure.

Trying to get my head around the concept of black holes is enough to send me back to bed too, Jim!

It's all quite amazing!

LOL -- and it ain't a picture of the black hole but of what the hole does. Much like a cloud chamber to high energy particles or our hearts to love. Smile

Sometimes I wonder why people worry about such things. Things that are that far removed from my realty can be put on the shelf! I have better things to do!!

Going back to bed is like retreating down a black hole, Jim, and is probably the best place to mull over the imagined and the ‘reality’.

Thanks for joining in! I don't understand the science, but I find it fascinating. :)

I think the main problem with understanding a black hole is all about how dense it is.
