A lot of people in the United States have gone shopping in order of taking advantage of the available Black Friday deals.
But NASA celebrates Black Hole Friday. NASA, along with other space agencies have been posting images of black holes in order of celebrating what they call “Black Hole Friday.” NASA tweeted all day long facts and information about black holes, including some jokes about the Black Friday.
The image is an artist’s conception of a supermassive black hole five times larger in mass than the one in the center of the Milky Way galaxy, in an extremely dense galaxy with diameter of 1/500th of our own galaxy, the M60-UCD1 dwarf galaxy.
If you lived inside this dwarf galaxy, the night sky would dazzle with at least 1 million stars visible to the naked eye. Our nighttime sky as seen from Earth’s surface shows 4,000 stars.”
NASA said about the image.
The black hole is a spot in outer space where the gravity draws everything near it so powerfully that not even light can escape it. Supermassive black holes can either be small or large. As claimed by NASA, certain scientists believe that black holes can be as small as a single atom, and that those little black holes are so incredibly dense in matter they may have the mass of a huge mountain. The NASA space agency posted several tweets and retweets regarding black holes.
NASA also tweeted some less known and fun facts about black holes. Like the one that several scientists believe the smallest black hole is the size of an atom. They also posted several jokes regarding the black holes including, like: If Black Holes are black, then how do scientists know they are there?
At the end of this month shoppers all over the United States were able to celebrate Black Friday. But NASA celebrates Black Hole Friday in this late November. One could argue that the latter is significantly better. So when people go out on that shopping spree in order of getting the greatest deals available over the year, when a shopper snatches that last PlayStation from right under the nose of a puppy-eyed kid, remember that NASA celebrates an entirely different Black Friday.
