Most of us search for one or more things that we hope will make our lives complete and rewarding—fulfillment. We associate fulfillment with many things, some being material pursuits. We expend our days searching for these things to make our lives worthwhile. However, as John Lemon famously coined: “Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans“. […]
On the Brinks of a Blackhole
A blackhole has such high gravitational effects at its centre that not even light can escape! Unfortunately, this characteristic make blackholes invisible to the naked eye.
