Black holes

Black holes are not just holes floating through space. Black holes are an area with massive amounts of matter squished in tiny areas. Because of all that matter stuck in a tiny area, the gravity that it releases is so strong not even light can escape. And since it even consumes light, that means that you can’t even see them. Scientist observe black holes by the effect on the surrounding area.

Black holes were predicted by Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity. According to NASA’s website, he predicted, “which showed that when a massive star dies, it leaves behind a small, dense remnant core. If the core’s mass is more than about three times the mass of the Sun, the equations showed, the force of gravity overwhelms all other forces and produces a black hole.” The first black hole was discovered in 1971.

Black holes have many weird properties to them that make them very unique. As was stated earlier, they are invisible, and they also take in all things around and tear them down to their subatomic level. According to a post on NASA’s Universe Forum, black holes also seem to slow down time around them. They are also predicted to release radiation; this radiation is known as Hawking radiation named after Stephen Hawking. Black holes leave this radiation theoretically until they completely evaporate.

Black holes are created when a large star dies. A star dies when it runs out of fuel for nuclear burning, and because of this the star collapses on itself causing a supernova.

After we are left with either a neutron star or a black hole. In order to get a black hole the core needs to be at least 3 times the mass of our sun, thus meaning if our sun went through this process it still wouldn’t make a black hole.

There are 4 main types of black holes which are: supermassive black holes, intermediate mass black hole, stellar black hole, and a micro black hole. The difference between all of these is their solar masses which can range from 5 solar masses all the way to an immeasurable amounts of mass. There is one other type of black hole, which is the most common one, which is characterized by its rotation, which is known as a Kerr black hole.

Mueller Investigation

In the years of 2017-2019, Robert Mueller was doing a special counsel investigation against Russia. He was investigating their government to see if they had anything to do with the 2016 U.S. presidential election. A source said, on May 17, 2017, the investigation extent included the allegations that were linked to Donald Trump’s 2017 presidential election.

In 2019, the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) started to look into the special counsel, eight days before Trump fired James Comey, who was leading the FBI Russia investigation. The FBI had a feeling that Trump and Russia were linked. The FBI were investigating Trump for obstruction of justice.Following the dismissal of Comey, 130 democratic lawmakers, in congress, called for the appointment of a special counsel.

The investigation resulted in the finding of dozens of instances of foul play by Paul Manafort. They found federal crimes, and at least eight guilty pleas led to convictions, possibly leaving him to serve 7 years in jail.

On Sunday, March 24, 2019, Mueller submitted his report to the FBI. The democrats fear that what they have read has already been made public in Trump’s favor.

The democrats demand that they see the full report made by Mueller. Attorney General William Barr said Mueller’s report cleared Trump of campaign tampering with Russia and criminal obstruction.
