Spagettification, Anyone?



Heh, no. This is not a clever new form of pasta. Unless you are a cannibal. A space cannibal.

Spagettification is the verb given to the act of being stretched out by the force of a Black Hole. If you were to cross the event horizon of a black hole, and thus enter said black hole, then the part of your body closer to the black hole would begin to accelerate toward it faster than the part of your body further away. You would get stretched out. You would get SPAGETTIFIED!! As intriguing as this may sound, you would not be alive for this. For most of it, at least. You would be dead, and you would miss your own spagettification, rendering the entire situation boring (for you) and a tad unfortunate.

Yes, I do love black holes. Yes, this is my third entry about black holes. Yes, they are amazing.
