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)

"In School Days" by John Greenleaf Whittier (poetry reading)
An American poem. The British find American sentimentality and sincerity hard to bear - just as Americans find British irony and dry humour baffling.

"Ode to New York" by Byron Rufus Newton (poetry reading)
Sometimes called "Owed to New York". Byron wrote this satirical poem when he was a reporter of the New York Herald in 1906.

The Dodos performed for Googlers in Mountain View, Ca on April 7, 2011 from their album No Color. About The Dodos: "Is there a rootsy folk-rock band — or any rock band, period, this side of Rush — that's more reliant on drumming than The Dodos? Multi-instrumentalists Meric Long and Logan Kroeber build their best songs around percussion to startling effect: "Good" and "Don't Try and Hide It," from the new No Color, pound and clatter with such precision and clarity, the whomp of the drums mi
