#6 A Brief History of Time - Black holes

Updated: Jul 31

Chapter 6:

  1. Formation of a black hole

  2. 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

  3. A star can collapse to a white dwarf, a neutron star, or a black hole( depends on its mass)

  4. The size and shape of a black hole only depend on its mass and rate of rotation, "a black hole has no hair"

  5. The number of black holes is high, since there are a lot of stars collapsed

  6. Black holes glow like a hot body, the smaller they are, the more they glow
