BLACK HOLES
WHAT IS A BLACK HOLE?
A black hole is a gravitational field that is so powerful that it can consume even the biggest objects in space.
A black hole is
not actually a hole at all. A
black hole is a region
of tightly packed material
in a small area. A black
hole forms when a large
star implodes
(explodes inward) and it creates a black hole.
WHAT CAN THEY DO?
Considering a black hole has such a strong gravitational field, a black hole can consume anything. They can actually absorb light itself, which is why they are called BLACK holes. Black holes can be big enough and strong enough to be able to digest stars. A black hole can even devour another black hole assuming that it is bigger in mass.
What do they look like?

Theories of the inside of a wormhole
You are ripped into very small pieces
You cannot be seen but you can see out of the black hole with distorted vision right before you are destroyed.
You are stretched in some directions and squashed in others so in the end you look like a little spaghetti noodle.
A black hole is actually invisible. Sadly all of the pictures I have previously shown and the one below are all just computer generated. The only way we can see them is by looking at them through an x-ray while the black hole is busy consuming light. This is true because the light will slowly spiral it's way into the black hole.
