What is a Black Hole? By Cole

What is a Black Hole?

A Black Hole is a region of space having a gravitational field so intense it won't let any matter escape.

How a Black Hole is created?

A Black Hole is formed when a star collapses in on its self. Then the exploded star won't let any matter escape and it creates a intense vortex.

What happens if there is a Black Hole in our solar system?

It would swallow all of the plants and it wouldn't end well for us.

Can a Black Hole be contained?

A Black Hole can be contained if there is a big enough magnetic field.

How big do Black Holes get?

Usually Black Holes get about a few billion times the size of our sun.
