Exploring a black hole

Scientists created the term “spaghettification” to more easily explain the dimensions your body would take if you entered a black hole.

Of all the known places, black holes are among the strongest in the universe. From the moment its existence became known, all kinds of doubts, theories and research have kept the scientific community in a constant research effort to understand what is going on inside these huge mysterious holes.

Research has yielded a great deal of information about the behavior of black holes, their origin, classification, and many other useful things to better understand what makes up the universe, but people’s curiosity when hearing about the subject is based mainly on what would happen if someone entered a black hole.

To explain the consequences, remember that a black hole is a place where gravity is so powerful that even light cannot get out of it, and it has its origin in the understanding of much matter in a small space, which can be created from the death of a star, and could be compared to the reduction of the Earth to the size of a peanut.

As light cannot escape from the interior of a black hole because of its incredible force of gravity, it is not observable, black holes cannot be seen. It is possible to know where they have located thanks to the development of very sophisticated space telescopes, but they cannot be detected with the naked eye.

The size of a black hole can be as small as an atom, but we should not be confused, that is small does not mean too much, remember that inside it is compressed a large amount of matter, comparable to the size of a mountain or a planet. There are also very large, stellar, or supermassive black holes, thousands of times larger than our Sun, and very difficult to calculate on commonly known scales.

No one has ever entered a black hole and will not be able to tell us what happened to it, nor is it possible to approach one even if it is very small, but thanks to the kinetic advances we can imagine what the effects would be of making a journey into a black hole.

Within the scientific community it is said that if a person were to fall into a black hole, his or her body would be absorbed with colossal force, causing the body to stretch like spaghetti. The amount of pressure at that time is unimaginable, enough to bend to light and time, which is why scientists created the term “spaghettification” to more easily explain the dimensions your body would take if you entered a black hole.

A person entering a black hole would feel the work of the gravitational forces with a great deal of force. On the top of the head, I would feel more pressure than on the toes and the body would literally be absorbed and stretched. The distortion of light and the way it reflects off matter would make it possible for you to see the back of your head, assuming your eyeballs didn’t disintegrate and stay alive.

A person’s body would become a long, thin stream of subatomic particles, a floating whirlpool, eventually being absorbed through the hole. The brain would disintegrate immediately, submerging us in an empty plane, the absolute nothingness in spite of having much-compressed matter inside. Although some scientists think that black holes could be the gateway to parallel realities, and begin to relate it to wormholes.
