What is it Like Inside a Black Hole

Black holes are prisons of Light, where gravity is so strong that nothing can escape. But they have even more bizarre effects: a block hole’s gravity distorts space and time, and the laws of physics break down at its center.

No one can look inside a black hole, but mathematicians can explore them using Einstein’s theory of gravity.

Objects that fall into a black hole are ‘spaghettified’. A hypothetical astronaut, falling in feet first, feels a stronger gravitational pull on the feet than her head, so she is stretched apart.

Closer to the hole, she is pulled into a tube. The effect is worse for smaller black holes, because they make steeper gravitational wells.
