Spaghettification

BBC Radio 4 have been running an excellent series on the history of astronomyCosmic Quest. During a discussion of what might happen if you fell into a black hole (not an every day even in mid Wales, but we do lag behind), Spaghettification describes the process where the difference in the gravitational force between your head and your feet would stretch you akin to Spaghetti.

Quite a lot of the program last night was devoted to the Anthropic Principles and the program did a very good job of presenting some very heavy material in an accessible manner. Well worth downloading and listening to if you are at all interested in Astronomy.
