Black Holes…Really Not Black Ya’ll

By  | May 15, 2017 | Filed under: Interesting Facts, News

If you are under the confusion that black holes are black than know that they are not. They are dark but not black. Actually, they slightly glow and emit light across the whole spectrum which includes visible light range also. This emitting or radiation is termed as “Hawking radiation”. It is named so because Stephen Hawking, Mathematics Professor at Cambridge University discovered this existence of the light. They lose mass due this continuous emitting light and will evaporate completely eventually until and unless they have some other source to sustain them like interstellar light and gas.
