Spaghettification – the process by which an object would be stretched and ripped apart by gravitational forces on falling into a black hole.
The engines of the spaceship let out a desperate sound of straining and Colbert put more pressure on them. He was determined not loss this gravity fight with the black hole. The lives of his crew were in his hands and they had been through so much all ready.
Colbert shook his head to get rid of the sweat dripping into his eyes. His knuckles had turned white on the control sticks and his hands were numb because of the tight grip. He gritted his teeth and kept his eyes on the front windows ahead of him.
Space was endless, dotted with planets and stars, wormholes, asteroid fields and so much more undiscovered. It was rare for a black hole to appear as normally they were find and carefully mapped but this one that Colbert had found his spaceship in hadn’t been plotted.
‘I won’t give up,’ Colbert hissed, ‘come on, baby,’
A crackling voice came over the speaker, ‘boz, the engines are over heating!’
‘It’s fine, Linger! They can take it!’ Colbert barked back.
Linger answered but the intercom crackled over it.
Colbert puffed out and shut his eyes. His whole body was shaking and he felt dizzy.
The engines give out a churning noise then cut. Colbert smelt smoke. He let out a scream of defeat and everything began stretching as if they were warp jumping. Then the spaceship began ripping apart and groaning under the buckling stress.
More screams and yells echoed through the ship. Colbert listened to them over the intercom, his heart pounding. The front window smashed and he was sucked out, tumbling into a grave of unknown blackness.
