It's 'Black Hole Friday'! Take a Break from Shopping to Celebrate with NASA (Video)

It's 'Black Hole Friday'! Take a Break from Shopping to Celebrate with NASA (Video)
By Mike Wall 5 hours ago Science & Astronomy

Get away from the consumer frenzy by pondering the mysteries of the universe.

. . .

NASA is trying to rebrand the spend-happy day after Thanksgiving, inspiring us to appreciate the wonders of the universe by contemplating its most extreme objects: black holes.

As part of this effort, the agency released a new video today (Nov. 29) called "5 Things: Black Holes" that lays out the basics of these light-gobbling behemoths.

"If you're not shopping, or on a break between stores, let yourself get sucked in to all this great material we have on black holes," NASA officials wrote in a statement on the agency's homepage today (Nov. 29). "See you on the other side of the event horizon."

The event horizon is a black hole's famous "point of no return" beyond which nothing, not even light, can escape.
