Abstract

In chapter 13 we dicussed the life cycle of a large star. As the star becomes a supernova, its core starts to collapse. Most stars will collapse to a certain point, then continue to exist as neutron stars or pulsars. But if the core was massive enough, it will continue to contract indefinitely until it reaches a point when its own light cannot escape from it. It is then called a black hole.
