Pupils in 2nd year have been researching and sharing fascinating photos from the LRC’s non-fiction collection. We’ve seen 5,000 year old bodies preserved by ice, volcanoes erupting underwater and cheetahs playing with their food (baby gazelles 😦 )
We also found out about spaghettification (thanks to Jordan of 2M) which is the effect of strong gravity on an object.
For example, as a body approaches a black hole’s event horizon, it’s affected by enormous gravitational forces. These forces force it to stretch until it’s very long and very skinny.
If any passing physicists or cosmologists would care to extrapolate further, please feel free.
