#6 A Brief History of Time - Black holes
Updated: Jul 31
Formation of a black hole
A large amount of gas starts to collapse in on itself, after the pressure of the heated gas balances the gravitational force, a star is formed
A star can collapse to a white dwarf, a neutron star, or a black hole( depends on its mass)
The size and shape of a black hole only depend on its mass and rate of rotation, "a black hole has no hair"
The number of black holes is high, since there are a lot of stars collapsed
Black holes glow like a hot body, the smaller they are, the more they glow
