What will happen if the earth falls into a black hole, how far is the nearest black hole


Science News Desk – Scientists are working day and night to gather more and more information about black holes. According to the information received so far, black holes are such bodies, which along with light have the ability to destroy everything present in the universe by pulling them inside them. Astronomers have seen many places in space where a star is getting absorbed in a black hole. After merging with the black hole, the existence of that star ended. Now the question is bound to arise that what will happen if the earth gets absorbed in a black hole? Which black hole is closest to our planet? What is its distance and till when it can swallow the earth?

First of all know what are black holes? How do they swallow and destroy even the biggest stars? In fact, all the power of a black hole lies in its small size. It is quite heavy for its size. This makes its gravity very powerful. Due to this powerful gravitational force, black holes pull and swallow everything that comes around them. Its gravitational force is so high that even if a star passes near it at the speed of light, it pulls it inside itself. It is also not necessary that black holes are only black. Quasars are extremely luminous black holes.

According to scientists, if the Earth falls into a black hole, three events can happen. Firstly due to its gravity our body will start elongating and feel stretched. Staying in the middle will keep pulling the legs and head. Also, due to being out of the center of the hands, they will start getting longer in different directions. This will make our whole body like spaghetti. Scientists have named this process as spaghettification. Second, black holes emit a lot of radiation. Due to this, our body will get roasted as soon as we fall in it. Third, a holographic image of an object falling into a black hole must be created and it must remain intact in its original form.

The part of any star near the black hole is rapidly pulled inward. The gravity is weaker on the far side of the star from the black hole. This difference is called tidal force. This breaks the star. A similar effect is seen when spaghetti is made when falling into a black hole. Astronomers have observed such events occurring in other galaxies. This process is called scientific tidal disturbance. In this, the star broke after reaching very close to the black hole.
