Magnitude – The measurement of an object’s brightness; the lower the number, the brighter the object. Theories about what would happen if a black hole came near earth are that we'd experience massive earthquakes and tidal waves and volcanic eruptions all over the world as the planet started to get disrupted and then suddenly we'd be sucked into oblivion.

These project-based lessons are inquiry-based and standards-aligned, and can be tailored to meet the needs of any classroom. A storm is visible in the top left near the pole. Some simple trigonometry is the basis for stellar parallax. In a future so distant the numbers are almost meaningless, they will be the only large objects in the entire cosmos … and even they will eventually die.

But Elon Musk and SpaceX just announced an ambitious new plan to colonize Mars. So, for a bit of a fun fact, the sun you're looking at now is actually the sun eight minutes ago. Also, I gloss over complications in creating the Earth's magnetic field, such as the flow of matter in giant convection cells in the core; but these details are not necessary to understand where the movie goes wrong.] Again, in the movie, they got something right: they said that a spinning ball of hot metal will create a magnetic field.
