Black hole rips star apart
« on: December 07, 2006, 04:59:57 AM »
Just yesterday I read, about a few hundred billion light-years away, a star was being completely devoured by a monsterous black hole. Sadly I lost the artical  :-( But if anyone else finds it again then that's great ^^. Anyway I found another article from 2004, where a similar thing is happened:

=/ Do you think this could happen to our sun in any lifetime?

Anything could happen, but I don't think it will in our lifetime


I read about this one too, its amazing what they can see,heat and detect now

It is doubtful.  There aren't any close enough to us to do that before our sun goes nova on us.
Your attitude is the only thing they can't take from you.
