These fabrications have raised public awareness and ignited curiosity toward the bizarre phenomena of black holes, though these creative myths are such ubiquitous clichés with reason – they are concocted by imaginative (and, needless to say, a little geeky) science-fiction writers who are never called out on blatantly lying. What perpetuates these clichés is that this propaganda is not even based on sound, scientific facts, but rather mere theories. Black holes have proven impossible to verify because of their light consumption, and in fact their very existence opposes Einstein’s theory of relativity with quantum mechanics.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
