Anatomy of a Black Hole

View a flash tutorial on the Anatomy of a Black Hole.

There are two main processes constantly going on in massive stars: nuclear fusion (which tends to blow the star's hydrogen outward from the star's center) And gravity (which tends to pull all hydrogen back in the direction it had come). These two processes balance one another until all the star's hydrogen is exhausted, allowing gravity to take over. Once gravity dominates, the star becomes unstable and starts to collapse. More massive stars tend to burn hotter and faster. Once all the hydrogen has been exhausted, such stars quickly collapse, shedding much of their mass in dramatic explosions called supernovae. Once the star starts to collapse, it does not stop, and the star (and ultimately its atoms) will cave inward upon itself, resulting in the formation of a black hole. Our sun Black hole candidate Earth Stars must be at least 3 times as large as our own sun before they will collapse into a black hole. Stars smaller than that will collapse into either a neutron star or a white dwarf. A black hole is defined, as a region where matter collapses to infinite density, and gravity so extreme that even light cannot escape. So if light is not given off by black holes, how do we detect them? Can you spot the black hole? Black holes can be detected through a technique called gravity lensing. Gravity lensing occurs when a massive object, in this case a black hole, passes between a star and the Earth. The black hole acts as a lens when its gravity bends the star's light rays and focuses them on the Earth. From an observer's point of view on the Earth, the star would appear to brighten.

Pick a Pumpkin

Design your very own jack-o-lantern and even print it out. First choose the shape of your pumpkin, then the shape of the cutout parts for the eyes, nose and mouth. I like pointy triangular shapes, but you can pick and choose your own.

Wired Article

Here is a Wired article for parents.

Odds are you're worried about the public implications of your kid's behavior online – such as whether your tween is passing herself off as a sultry 19-year-old on MySpace, or he’s nursing an outta-control Internet poker and porn habit. Or maybe you're concerned that Google's cache will cough up their explicit blog to a prospective employer in 2016. In a teenage brain, impulse control is still under construction, psychologist David Walsh says. The job of the parent is to act as the surrogate prefrontal cortex.

Learn the Signs. Act Early. NCBDDD

Do you know all the ways you should measure your child’s growth? We naturally think of height and weight, but from birth to 5 years, your child should reach milestones in how he plays, learns, speaks and acts. A delay in any of these areas could be a sign of a developmental problem, even autism. The good news is, the earlier it’s recognized the more you can do to help your child reach her full potential.
