Standard Model[change source]

I think, the phrase "...Standard Model..." in the description should be replaced. Standard Model refers to a particular theory that can not explain gravitation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graviton). That is why, it is misleading to imply that the observed objects can be explained within the understanding of the Standard Model. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.197.65.99 (talkcontribs)

Agree, and fixed. In future you are welcome to make such changes yourself. Giggy (talk) 14:47, 6 November 2008 (UTC)


Black hole[change source]

They decided it was a black hole with a strong gravitational force. This does mean that the origin of such a strong force can not be something different than a gravitational one.

According to that last bit, the fact that they decided was enough to prove the origin. What? — This unsigned comment was added by 146.6.82.219 (talk • changes).

Black Holes have been photgraphed[change source]

The caption in the picture that states black-holes have never been photographed is wrong. They have photographed from very long distances. (While it may be difficult to obtain a photo of a black-hole to use legally on this page; they have still been photographed by NASA and others.) Sometimes it may be difficult to tell from a photo that it is a black-hole, because black-holes contain no light... but they have been photographed. Lauryn Ashby (d) 21:03, 5 February 2010 (UTC)

A "Thing"?[change source]

A black hole is a "Thing" in the universe? that's quite funny, isn't there a better way to describe it?

"Simple != stupid"[change source]

Just noticed this article today as it popped up on recent changes. What immediately caught my eye was the sentence "a black hole is a thing". I don't have time to work on it anymore tonight, but suggest that we totally re-write this article. Yes, black holes are sometimes difficult subjects to discuss, but we can do so in a simple, yet informative matter. Any help will be appreciated. Lauryn Ashby (d) 21:03, 5 February 2010 (UTC)

ATTENTION[change source]

If the original star was large enough the densely packed ball is called a singularity, the core of a black hole, but if it was not it would become either a neutron star or a dwarf star. What kind of sentence is that? It has obvious grammer mistakes. Could someone correct this? Since this is the Simple English version of wikipedia for new learners.

Introduction: a sentence is missing[change source]

Right now the first sentence of the article reads:

« A black hole is a region of space from which nothing, including the general theory of relativity, it is the result of the curving of spacetime caused by a huge mass. »

Look at the emphasis: this sentence makes no sense, something is missing.
