You will discover…        that Einstein’s general theory of relativity predicts regions of space and time that are severely distorted by the extremely dense mass they contain that space and time are not separate entities how black holes arise the surprisingly simple theoretical properties of black holes that X rays and jets of gas are created near many black holes the apparent bizarre fate of black holes unsurpassed energy emitted by gamma-ray bursts The Speed of Light Is Constant Movement and Space The faster an object moves, the shorter it becomes in its direction of motion as observed by someone not moving with the object.
