I read somewhere, I may have read it wrong, but I read that everything in space is basically hurling (revolving) around something... Like moons revolve around the planets, the planets revolve around the sun, the whole make a solar system, our solar system revolves around the center of the galaxy (A black hole???). Is our galaxy revolving around something? Is it even moving? If it is, then is it possible that we may some day crash into another galaxy? If that happens, what would the result be? Would it be a dramatic armagedon explosion type thing? Or a formation of a galactic size black hole? Or would we form into an even bigger galaxy? I have another question... How small is the hole in a black hole?? Could we construct anything small enough that would safely pass through it and record the results? Or would the force of the gravity around the black hole tear it apart to dust? I'm also curious to find out weather or not it's theoretically possible, and what that theory exactly is, to construct a black hole, or a wormhole for space flight... Thanx for listening, hope you can help me out!
