Quantum Mechanics

By Afro Puff  

Intro

Whaz up, did you know that there is a 50% chance that you will die in 2036, because a comet around as big as Texas will hit the coast of Oregon taking out the world?  IÕm very serious right now. I swear I am not lying. Well, youÕll get a few of those in my report. What I mean is you will get a lot of stuff that will scare you out of your pants. Before you read anymore please answer to the request in parentheses below. I am going to teach you about the sun, black holes, Comets, Meteors, and Supernovae. That will be fun, scary, shocking, and maybe funny.

Black Holes

Black Holes are confusing, and you are going to learn them.  According to Wikipedia, the first thing you want to know about a black hole is that it takes more than 400 million GÕs to escape the force of a black hole. It wouldnÕt be smart at all, in any way, to see who can get closer to a black hole. They are not an oversized black vacuum. A black holeÕs entering hole is about the size of you making a circle with your hands. It will break you or destroy you, than suck up the tiny pieces.

Black Holes vary in size. According to Wikipedia, lack Holes can get smaller than stars. Now, stars are big. But that is very small for a black hole. Black Holes can also get up to hundreds of thousands to millions of solar masses. That is millions of times our solar system. If you can fit 3.1 million earths in the sun, and you can fit thousands of the suns in the solar system, that we know of, you could fit around 1 billion of the suns in the biggest Black Hole.

                            

 

Meteors and Comets

       Meteors and Comets arenÕt completely alike. LetÕs start with comets. Comets are things of gas that orbit the sun. But not all of them orbit the sun, some orbit the planets. They get so hot they very slowly decinagrates. That leaves parts of it behind, (the tail).  They vary in size, of course. They can get as big as Texas, and as small as a house. They donÕt orbit too close to sun, or, duh, they would incinerate, they orbit 40 million miles away from the sun.

 

       Meteors are huge.  I mean really huge. A meteor in space as big as Orem will decinagrate so much that by the time it hits the earth at the size of two Hummers. The reason is because when a comet or meteor hits the atmosphere it is vulnerable to fire, freezing, and so forth. It will at first freeze and little parts will break off, which will soon incinerate to nothing. Then the main comet or meteor will thaw very fast and catch fire. That comet or meteor will not completely decinagrate, but will decinagrate a whole bunch.

 

The Sun

       The Sun wonÕt blow up, but donÕt go partying yet; itÕs going to do something really bad in your lifetime. See, the sun is made of gases, that is all it is, a HUGE ball of gas. It sometimes sends out shockwaves so hot if you were 40 million miles away from the sun it will burn you to nothing; those shockwaves create radiation, which knocks the crap out of magnetic field. At least the first shockwave does. It travels 96 million miles in 8 minutes. This makes the magnetic field weaker and more vulnerable to whatever. The second shockwave is slower, but still very fast. It sends radiation in to the very top of our atmosphere. This makes the northern and southern lights. The third one sends radiation deeper in the atmosphere, and is worse; it wonÕt effect us on ground, but it will cut of electricity, and cut of airplane communications, which when you think about it, that could kill hundreds. This is called a solar storm. In estimated 2011, a huge solar storm will hit, taking out electricity and airplane communications for days, weeks, months, very unlikely, but maybe even years. Airplanes during that time will have no clue when to land and it will be very dangerous. Electricity will go out and hospitals will be running on emergency power. Only the small towns that donÕt need much energy and power will be in good shape and not panicing.

Brief Summary:

It is a LONG article on black holes, suns, supernovae, and stars. It felt like I was digging and when I hit Wikipedia it felt like gold.
