Area of Science:

Project Title:

Blackhole Question

The stars that are more than three times the size of that of our own sun collapse and form black holes when they die. Black Holes have a gravitational pull that is so strong that it even pulls light in light. As a result of a black hole pulling light it is also invisible. A spherical surface exists on the black hole called an event horizon. When an object enters the event horizon it disapears from our universe forever. All mater of the former star are located at a single point in the center of the black hole called a singulatory . The singulatory is thought to be smaller then the nucleus of an atom.

Because black holes are invisible scientists have only indirect evidense that they exist. Our project is to attempt to get close or to know what happens to matter after it goes through the event horizon, and though the singulatory. We would like to ask the Super Computer these questions, but i think because of the indirect evidense we will have to draw our own conclusion.
