    Actually that is a theory. One of the most pausible, but still a theory. They do not know for sure. If they are correct sending in a probe would not help because the information could not get back out. Even light can not escape its pull.

    no one really knows what a black hole is. All people know right now is that it sucks up anything in its path and it dissapears forever, it just turns into nothing... I heard there is one not too far away from the milky way [/QUOTE]

    There is a theory that all large galaxies have a super-massive blackhole in their centers (the milkly way supposedly has one).

    Not only that, but black holes DON'T suck in everything...they actually expell large amounts of energy and particles in "jets" from their poles....interesting stuff...

    I love stuff like that! Astronomy is fascinating. That's definitely a red-letter event. Wish I had a telescope. But even binoculars can help. Another favorite is Perseids meteor shower in August.

    If enough of you were local I would offer to have a Star-b-que. But, I don't think all that many of you live in Northern California.

    I might even be able to get ahold of the might whizzer..the gas powered blender.

    This past January, we (Central Florida) had a meteor shower at about 12 : 00 or so A.M. one night... I was waiting for it anyway, since I saw stuff about it on the news. Dang... I was standing out in the driveway, leaning against the truck, all bundled up. It was freakin' COLD!!!! Yeah, it's Florida, but it was still 30 degrees Farenheit. My teeth were chattering so hard, my whole head was vibrating, which made my veiw of the meteorites a little... bumpy.
