A Fate Worse Than Grading
The economy got you down? Or have a stack of papers to grade? Don’t fret. Life could be worse . . . Far worse. You could be sucked into a black hole.
This very entertaining video of astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson is very much worth watching. With great humor, he describes what would happen to you if you were sucked into a black hole, as well as the asteroid that’s projected to come very close to Earth in 2029, possibly hitting the planet in 2037. Tyson is the author of Death by Black Hole (Norton 2007).
The video is here.
