Black Holes

One of the topics we wanted to learn more about was Black Holes. We started by looking at this video clip:


We used the following website to find out more about Black Holes, from other people's Frequently Asked Questions: HubbleSite

Mr Nicoll used the idea of a balloon to help us understand the forces that cause a large star to collapse and form a Black Hole:

From this, we had two tasks to carry out:
  1. DESCRIBE Black Holes

  1. SEQUENCE how Black Holes are created

Those doing Black Holes as their Research Project have one more important task:
  1. INFER what is inside Black Holes (or on "the other side"). Remember to include evidence in your answer, not just popular Science Fiction.
