Black Friday? Or ‘Black Hole Friday’?

Black Friday has created a lot of buzz like it has since many years, with a large number of people getting injured and fights breaking out due to buyers rushing to get every single piece of the sweet deals out there. There are times where the buyers have experienced the feeling of being sucked in somewhere against their will, getting into a dark and cold place rapidly.

Well, that could either be due to the evil feeling after snatching away the last 50$ off Television set from an Old Lady, or due to a black hole.

Hence to sum it up, for the Joe Average it was the Black Friday, but for the scientists working at NASA, it was the Black Hole friday, and believe it or not, it was something better (arguably).

The day was spent by NASA through tweeting various interesting facts about black holes, followed by some Black Friday-themed jokes too.

If humor isn’t your thing, the agency also tweeted out a black hole-themed game.

The space agency sent out over a dozen tweets and retweets on black holes.

NASA defines a black hole as “a place in space where gravity pulls so much that even light cannot get out,” where “the gravity is so strong because matter has been squeezed into a tiny space.”

Some more lesser-known facts about black holes were also posted by the space agency. For instance, it is believed by some scientists that there are (much) smaller black holes than the ones noticed in space today, going as small as the size of an atom.
