The Anatomy of a Black Hole

We all talk about them as if we know exactly what we are talking about them. However, the real science behind black holes eludes most of us. Here, stephencardiff gives us a short but understandable explanation - along with a personal reflection on whether the experiments going on in Cern at the moment are a particularly good idea for us - and the universe in general.

From the article:-
A black hole is a star that has exploded or died. After a star dies, it just doesn’t stay a burnt out rock floating in space. Well some do, but more often than not they will explode, causing a Black Hole.
