Black holes are formed when extremely large star dies. When a star dies, it first expands, then contracts. Large stars contract until their atoms collapse, pulling the electrons into the nucleus. The immense strength of the gravitational force of a black hole pulls all nearby matter in, even light (which has mass). (02:28)
