Black Hole Space Travel Postcard

Fabled Creative

Inspired by Retro-Futurism, Minimalism and Art Deco this postcard is perfect for fans of Nasa, astronomy, sci-fi or space in general.

ABOUT THIS LOCATION

A black hole is a region of a spacetime exhibiting such strong gravitational effects that nothing—not even particles and electromagnetic radiation such as light—can escape from inside it. The theory of general relativity predicts that a sufficiently compact mass can deform spacetime to form a black hole. The boundary of the region from which no escape is possible is called the event horizon. Although the event horizon has an enormous effect on the fate and circumstances of an object crossing it, no locally detectable features appear to be observed. In many ways, a black hole acts as an ideal black body, as it reflects no light. Moreover, quantum field theory in curved spacetime predicts that event horizons emit Hawking radiation, with the same spectrum as a black body of a temperature inversely proportional to its mass. This temperature is on the order of billionths of a Kelvin for black holes of stellar mass, making it essentially impossible to observe.

ABOUT THE SERIES
Space tourism is still a long ways off, but it’s not hard to imagine that someday, tourists will visit the natural geological landmarks of other worlds much like they tour the Grand Canyon, Mount Everest or Ayers Rock. Each of these great tourist destinations needs a classic retro travel postcard to entice visitors. Until the day people settle off world and make their own destinations many of these may be the places that people will want to travel too. I hope that these postcards can inspire people to think beyond our world to the limitless possibilities of the Universe.
