Some Interesting Facts About Black Holes

A black hole is such an object or region in space where the gravitational pull is so high that even light cannot pass through it

Black holes are formed when a star dies. Usually, when a star dies, it bursts and spreads into small pieces, but sometimes if that star doesn't burst, it consumes itself

Albert Einstein was the first person who predicted the existence of black holes in his general theory of relativity in 1916

But the term "black hole" was introduced many years later by the American astronomer John Wheeler in 1967. After that, the first physical black hole was spotted in 1971

Then in 2019, the Event Horizon Telescope released the first-ever image of a black hole discovered in the center of the galaxy M87

So far astronomers have identified three types of black holes, which are Stellar black holes, Supermassive black holes, and Intermediate black holes

Black holes are considered the most harmful objects in universe because asteroids, planets, or anything else that comes closer to it, a black hole pulls them inside it 

In 1974, Stephen Hawking introduced a theory which was based on quantum vacuum fluctuations and this theory is also called Hawking radiation

Stating that after a time the black hole will evaporate each particle, and that too at a very slow rate, and as black hole gets smaller, it will burst into the universe
