NASA celebrates #BlackHoleFriday by releasing breathtaking images

After series of mesmerising pictures, US Space Agency NASA has again tweeted some breathtaking taking pictures of Black Hole on the occasion of Black Friday. While people were celebrating the special occasion by buying new products, NASA tried to celebrate the day in a different style by telling people about Black Holes and releasing some astonishing pics.

Some might not know what exactly Black Hole is? Black Holes are formed after death of a gigantic star, at this stage everything starts to collapse inside the star and tonnes of mass gets concentrated in a very small area leading to very high gravitational pull such that not even light can escape its gravity. Thus, as the name suggests Black Holes aren’t empty like a hole instead they are the most concentrated objects in the universe.

Since, all the light passing near the Black Holes gets trapped we are unable to see it by naked eyes and it can only be seen through special telescopes. Black Holes are important as without them our galaxies would not exist and it plays a very crucial role in formation of galaxies. This year NASA tweeted five breathtaking images which is a delight to watch especially for stargazers as they wait for the American Space Agency to release these kinds of images.
