There’s nothing more powerful in the universe than a black hole, the mysterious remnants of an ultra-giant star that has collapsed under its own weight into something tiny, dense, and with so much gravity that even light can’t escape.
This week (May 2-6) is Black Hole Week at NASA. To illustrate the power and mystery of these things, an MIT astrophysicist worked with a group of musicians to convert the output of a black hole into sound waves. What they got was the screaming echo of a black hole. Anyone want to sample this for their next single? (Matt Bellamy: I’m looking at you.)
