|***eyes open wide with interest*** COOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL!!! God, I MUST SEE!!! I can't wait for this! I'm so intrigued by outer space... any program on TV about anything in space, especially about black holes (they mess with time and space... huh? Whaz zat mean?) and planets and space catastrophies (like the prediction that the galaxy Andromeda will eventually collide with the Milky Way galaxy... oooooo), I'm sitting on the couch, completely absorbed and looking like a zombie and eating peanuts mechanically. LOL... anyhowees, ME MUST SEE![/QUOTE]|
LOL.. You sound just like me (only I eat popcorn [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] ) I can sit and be glued to a space show on NOVA or Discovery Channel that I've already seen 5 times.
Thanks for the tip Tamlin, I'll definately have to check that out.
There are only 2 infinite things... the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not too sure about the universe.
I'm really pleased that you brought this up. It's really quite a fascinating event. I had my scope out this weekend for a tune-up run. I love summer viewing! I love nebulas!
I'm stoked! I encourage anyone to seek out a star party in your area. There are literally hundreds being planned around this event globally. There is likely one happening near you; and for the most part they are generally open to the public.
If you don't have a telescope and are a hermit. If you happen to have a pair of binoculars handy, you might just get a decent view.
Endlessly seeking a hybrid Dionaea muscipula big enough to eat my co-workers.

Yay Tamlin! Leave it to you to bring this up on the forum. I've been waiting for this to come for about 8 months now. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] I will absolutly have my telescope out for this event! (or shall i say the durration of the event.

I thought that scientists did know what black holes were... Just collapsed stars. Ie. the mass of a star, only infinatly small, because it's gravitational pull is so great that it collapses on itself, and by doing so, its gravitational pull gets stronger (its mass is the same, but its a smaller 'object' ), so it keeps sucking itself in, so to speak. so, obviously, things that go by it sorta get sucked in to, to put it simply.
am i far wrong?
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.

I am just like a Super Hero, but without the power or motivation.................and the funky suit.
Let me shed some light on black holes [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] :
Black holes for dummies...
There's a tunnel at the end of the light...
