Wow... and just when I thought things couldn't get much bigger or smaller. I always knew that the Universe was a vast (using the term very lightly here) place but when these things get put into perspective you truly realize how epic the world around you really is.

So good,

Especially the fact that you can click on everything to learn more.
And to the person below me, Mathematically, the size of the black hole is given by GM/c2 where G is the gravitational constant, M is the mass of the black hole and c is the speed of light. When someone says that a Black hole is 5km, it means that the event horizon (the point from which light can no longer escape from the black hole).
If our Sun were to become a black hole, its size would be about 3 km. So Black holes can come in many different sizes depending on the origin of it, for him to of put a randomly sized Black hole into the scale it would not really give anyone an idea of well.... the scale of a Black hole and the things around it.
