English term or phrase: black hole
Definition from
The collapsed core of a massive star. Stars that are very massive will collapse under their own gravity when their fuel is exhausted. The collapse continues until all matter is crushed out of existence into what is known as a singularity. The gravitational pull is so strong that not even light can escape.

Example sentence(s):
  • It is now believed that at the center of each galaxy there is a super-massive black hole that is millions to billions of times heavier than our sun. The massive black hole captures nearby stars and drags them into a swirling accretion disk. Goddard Space Flight Center
  • There is no limit in principle to how much or how little mass a black hole can have. Any amount of mass at all can in principle be made to form a black hole if you compress it to a high enough density. Black holes FAQ
  • Despite its interior being invisible, a black hole may reveal its presence through an interaction with matter that lies in orbit outside its event horizon. For example, a black hole may be perceived by tracking the movement of a group of stars that orbit its center. Wikipedia

Example sentence(s):
  • 黑洞可分為兩大類:一種擁有恆星的質量,是一顆垂死恆星內爆(塌陷)後形成的,另一種擁有10億顆左右的恆星質量,沒人知道它們怎麼形成。不過,過去幾年 天文學家已經發現的證據顯示:宇宙中還有一種黑洞,質量介於100~10000顆恆星之間。「它們也許是個橋樑,介於那些我們知道的恆星質量天體,與我們 認為我們知道的超級質量黑洞之間。」英格蘭萊色斯大學的沃德說。 - 科學人(Scientific American)  
  • 天文學家在一幅深空全景影像中,發現上千個超重黑洞(supermassive black holes);這些發現,使得天文學家得以一瞥這些巨獸成長的過程及環境。 - 國大里天文社  
  • 黑洞理論中的幾何問題與其附近的重力輻射 : 廣義相對論預言黑洞存在,但我們憑什麼要相信 一個由數學的理論所推導出的結果呢? - 中央研究院物理所 物理專文

Annegin Leider gibt es gar keinen Kontext. Nur eine Aufstellung unzusammenhängender Begriffe. Aber trotzdem vielen Dank an alle für die Kommentare und Ideen.

Annegin Letztendlich hat sich "double crosse" hier nach Rückfrage als Doppelgriff herausgestellt. Trotzdem lieben Dank an die Kollegen für die Beiträge und Ideen.
