    What exactly is a Black Hole in space?

    A black hole isn't a hole, but, it also isn't a solid body. It is an "area' of extremely powerful gravity, so powerful that nothing, not even light can escape No one has ever "seen" a black hole. Their existence is a mathematical probability. In theory, a black hole is at the center of our galaxy, and gives it the spiral shape which is due to revolutionary movement. The galaxy revolves around this black hole. Caught in the gravity of a black hole, matter is pulled in, presumably, falling apart as the energy which binds atoms together is what the black hole feeds upon. It is further theorized that time stops at the center of a black hole. It is certainly true that time becomes twisted, The effect of gravity on time is one of the foundations of Quantum Physics and Quantum Mechanics. It is now being postulated by some in the field that a black hole could be a universe within the universe.

    A black hole in space is formed when a dying star collapses to an extremely small size. Its entire mass have shrunken into a very small area of space thus creating a region of space with extreme gravitational force that is so strong even light cannot escape from it. This is the reason it is called a black hole because you cannot see it since light cannot escape from it. Everything near it will be drawn into it. Astronomers are able to detect them since they give off electromagnetic waves such as x-rays that are emitted from the edge of the black hole called the event horizon when matter or light fall into it. They can also observe the movement of stars around them since some stars are companions to black holes. The strong gravity from the black hole will affect the movement of nearby stars.

    Contrary to all the common believes there is only one explanation.
    Though this is somehting nobody really want to understand.

    A 'Black Hole' is a location in space where polarity is neutralized.
    There is no positive and no negative; there is no magnetism and no electrical.

    I must disagree with the previous answers. After mathematically studying the circumstance, I have concluded that a Black Hole is my wallet!

    A black hole is a body that has completely collapse to a state of zero size and infinite density (singularity). this body does not emit nor reflect light. Their gravity is extremelly strong that nothing can scape from it nor even light. It would require for any object to exceed the speed of light in order to escape out from these objects. scientists know black holes exists by the gravity they exert upon a nearby star companion in binary systems.
