Is it safe to travel to space?

Astronauts and space tourists face risks from radiation, which can cause illness and injure organs. ... Researchers used supercomputers to investigate the radiation exposure of an historical space mission. Improved computation times could one day model astronaut radiation exposure in real time.

If a nuclear weapon is exploded in a vacuum-i. e., in space-the complexion of weapon effects changes drastically: First, in the absence of an atmosphere, blast disappears completely. ... There is no longer any air for the blast wave to heat and much higher frequency radiation is emitted from the weapon itself.

What would happen if we nuked a black hole?

For a black hole, any matter entering the event horizon is added to the mass. Shoot bullets at a black hole, and you just make a slightly more massive, slightly more dangerous black hole. ... Within the event horizon, energy and matter are one, and those very same black holes can convert that energy into mass.

What kills you in a black hole?

Curiously, the black hole's enormous gravity itself is not what will kill you--you are always weightless when in free fall. Instead, you would be pulled apart as a result of the difference between the force of gravity at your feet and at your head.
