Tarvin's Black Holes?

Home » Newsroom » Tarvin's Black Holes?

I have to admit to a passing interest in Astrophysics which deals with the physics of the universe! That doesn't mean I understand any of it-just fascinated by the concepts and ideas that those clever minds come up with. I hasten to add that any knowledge in this area is not a pre-requisite to being on the Tarvin Webteam.

One topic I find pretty incredible is that relating to Black Holes. What does this have to do with Tarvin you might ask? Well Black Holes are believed to be " regions of spacetime that exhibit such strong gravitational pull that no particle or even light can escape from them".
The boundary of the region from which no escape is possible is called the event horizon. Although crossing the event horizon has enormous effect on the fate of the object crossing it, it appears to have no locally detectable features.

I believe that they exist in Tarvin and are particularly associated with cul-de-sacs and turning circles. What's the evidence? -well take a look at Broomheath Lane.

Once the rubbish gets here it never moves! It is obviously invisible to some people who park their cars up, leave rubbish and somehow achieve escape velocity from the hole.
The contrast with other parts of our village was brought home to me as the same day the Woodland walk was showing the first glimpses of Spring with the beds of snowdrops and a few crocuses
