Stars Need To Be On The Lookout For Black Holes
A wandering star, caught napping, drifted too close to a black hole (where gravitational forces are so dense not even light can escape, hence the name black hole) and was gobbled up by the hole, reducing the star to a singularity (a pinpoint). Hopefully, no extra-terrestrial life inhabited the star because if so they became very, very small in a nano second.
But doesn't it appear that a piece of the star broke off and escaped and went sailing on by?
Be sure to watch the accompanying video that explains how black holes are formed and what it would be like to go inside one.
After watching this video be sure to check out the baby alien allegedly discovered by a Mexican farmer, perhaps after drinking too much pulque. Lab tests so far are inconclusive.
