    • Wow, I was really fascinated with your topic about black holes. I did not know that black holes are formed from giant starts that died so I definitely learned a lot today from this… good job.

    • Logan,

      Really cool topic. The physics mysteries surrounding the nature of black holes are so interesting. They’re definitely one of the biggest conundrums in space, and have probably gotten their exposure from their portrayal in movies and television like you said. I’d love for us to be able to know more, but it seems silly to hope for any quick development.

      Here’s an article I found talking about some of the scientific uses for black holes:

    • Hello there Logan, I found your post very fascinating. What was really interesting was your theoretical idea of the sun turning into the black hole, although there may be an issue with the sun turning into a black hole. From this link, http://hubblesite.org/reference_desk/faq/answer.php.id=57&cat=exotic, “ Four billion years from now when the Sun runs out of the available nuclear fuel in its core, our Sun will die a quiet death.” This is because the mass of the sun isn’t enough to become a black hole, and if it did have a slight chance to become a black hole, it would take some time. Also, when you said “The earth has almost no chance of ever encountering a black hole, and even if we did, it would have to come incredibly close to cause any real damage.” I thought that was interesting because from this link, https://www.theguardian.com/science/2017/sep/04/supermassive-black-hole-discovered-near-heart-of-the-milky-way, scientists have found that “An enormous black hole one hundred thousand times more massive than the sun has been found hiding in a toxic gas cloud wafting around near the heart of the Milky Way.” And “the Milky Way” they’re talking about is the Milky way we are in, so we will be encountering a massive black hole eventually. It may take many years. How can you be sure that the sun won’t burn out eventually? It’s hard to make any claim on something where anything can happen. I am interested to see what you do next with your paper. Bye.

    • I love this post Logan! I am super interested in space and what we don’t understand about it. I never realized black holes were so relatively harmless. I also didn’t realize how little we really know about them. I always see the same type of images about what a black hole looks like but these depictions could be completely wrong. Truthfully I don’t think our human species will ever grow to understand black holes. This portion of space will remain a mystery forever. It amazes me that we have all of these fundamental understandings about math and physics and black holes could single handedly prove many of this wrong. I love these types of mysteries. Thanks for the post and insight. This website might be interesting for you.

    • Dear Logan,
      I am intrigued by your post because you really changed my perspective about black holes. Every time I thought about black holes, I would think ‘danger! Danger!’. However, it really exposed me to the nature and truth about black holes. But I also became really fascinated about black holes.
      One thing you said that stands out for me is: “For the sun to become a black hole, its radius would have to decrease to three kilometers, almost a quarter-millionth of its current size.” I think this is interesting because it really illustrates how unlikely it is for our sun to become a black hole when it dies. It really highlights how black holes are rare occurrences.
      Thanks for your project. I look forward to seeing what you write next because it seems like you have a lot of knowledge regarding space, which I am very interested in.You also seem to like to write about the truth about well known rumors, which I love finding out.

    • Logan, this was a really good post and I’m impressed with how many statistics you included in order to prove your argument. I agree with your stance and I think you provided a very strong point.

    • I am amazed about your post, “College Woes”, because you telling people of how difficult is life when your family doesn’t have too much money to pay your budget for your college.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “ My family is middle class, and we are not poor by any stretch of the imagination. However, every school that I’ve applied to is far beyond my family’s budget.”. I think this is interesting because mostly every people in this city doesn’t have that much money to be wasting a lot because they have to be paying bills and taxes.

      Another sentence that I liked was “Ever since I can remember, going away to college has been my dream.” This stood out for me because this is everybody’s dream but most of them can not be achieved because they don’t have that much of money.

      Your poem reminds me of my dad’s story because he wanted to go to college but my grandparents didn’t had the money to let him go to college. So he never went to college.

    • Logan, I enjoyed reading your discussion on dreaming. It’s a really interesting topic since almost everyone has this happen to them, yet no one really understands how it works. In my experience, I have a few dreams that I remember very well, even though I dreamed them possibly more than 10 years ago. I thought your information from Psychology Today was very interesting, including its theories on whether or not dreaming has a purpose. This reminded me of this article http://www.webmd.com/sleep-disorders/guide/dreaming-overview#1 from webmd.com. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because this was very interesting to read.
