Kids’ Science Question No. 5

Kids hear about black holes on science fiction shows and films in which they are shown to be incredibly complex, near-mystical objects with the power to transport you through time, space and into other dimensions. This, of course, piques children’s curiosity and they turn to the nearest adult for more information. Black holes can actually be described very simply – they are lots of stuff squeezed into a small space. To be a little more precise, a black hole can be the equivalent of ten Suns squashed down to about 10 miles across.
