Neil deGrasse Tyson Explains What Would Happen If You Fell into a Black Hole

Perhaps you’ve pondered your own mortality. But have you ever imagined perishing as you fall into a black hole? Probably not. But if you’re intrigued by this admittedly unlikely scenario, then watch the clip above.  Neil deGrasse Tyson, an astrophysicist who heads up the Hayden Planetarium in NYC, breaks down the scene for you step-by-step and in a fairly humorous way. This talk is based on his well-reviewed book, Death by Black Hole: And Other Cosmic Quandaries.
