Why do black holes have such strong gravity?
This is a live video chat. The narrator was asked, “Why do black holes have such stronger gravity than the stars they formed from?” Here's the answer, gravity depends upon two things, the mass of the object and how far away you are from it. The mass of a star when it collapses the core forms a black hole, so now you can get closer to it and the gravity draws you in. Video is somewhat confusing - the narrator speaks fast and may be hard
Meet the Supermassive Black Hole Experts Meet the experts of possibly the scariest phenomenon in the universe - super massive black holes. Described as gravity gone mad, whole solar systems can be sucked into these terrifying masses. Supermassive black holes are a million to a billion times the massive of a typical black hole. They could fill a solar system. At the heart of a supermassive black hole is one of the most mysterious things to physics, it is a singularity, wh

The Positive Side of Black Holes - BBC Science
Some scientists believe that black holes may have played an important role in the creation of the universe in this interesting video from BBC science show 'Supermassive Black Holes'.
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)
Largest Star Known to Man
A sequence showing how our planets and our Sun stack up against the universe's astronomical giants. Some of the stars within the video include Sirius, Pollux, Riegel and Betelgeuse. Stars in the video continue to increase until they reach the "largest star known to man" - VY Canis Majoris. Images of the stars are set to music. No narration. Run time 01:04.
The Biggest Stars in Space
Stars range in size from neutron stars, which vary anywhere from 20 to 40 km in diameter, to supergiants like for example - Betelgeuse in the Orion constellation, which has a diameter approximately 650 times larger than the Sun—about 0.9 billion kilometres. However, Betelgeuse has a much lower density than the Sun.
VY Canis Majoris (VY CMa) is a red hypergiant star located in the constellation Canis Major. With a size of up to about 2,100 solar radii, it is the largest known star and als

Performing "The Walrus Hunt"
This video, adapted from material provided by the ECHO partners, shows how students in Anchorage, Alaska, develop a song and dance to tell about a walrus hunt. Their goal in creating this dance is to connect with their Yup'ik and Iñupiaq cultures, help preserve the cultures for future generations, and express their joy in being part of those cultures. To share their dance with others, the students produce a music video of their work, excerpts of which appear in this video. Closed captioni
