IDEA FOR A SCIENCE FICTION STORY: BLACK HOLE

I know it’s been done before, but here’s my idea of a story that might be on a slightly grander scale.  With this posting on my blog I have proof that the idea is mine.  Just thought I’d run it by my science fiction fans and writers.

I just read an article posted on Science Daily, a site I check every day for it provides a wealth of science facts capable of giving science fiction a nudge. The article stated (I’ll provide a link) that scientists have discovered a new black hole.  The interesting fact is that it is 30 times bigger than expected, and they don’t know why.

Okay, let’s put on our imagination caps now.

What if the black hole was 100 times as big as predicted, hell, make it 1000 times bigger.  The universe is less than predictable.  Imagine that this black hole was near enough to our galaxy, or perhaps created within our galaxy, and was able to draw our solar system and a good part of the Milky Way into its region of destruction.

How would that approach effect our planet?  Say we had a heads-up of thousands of years.  What would mankind do other than form committees which accomplish nothing?  What would the hero to this dilemma do to save the world?  And if there wasn’t a hero what would happen when our planet was pulled into this massive void?  Are we destroyed or do we arrive at another dimension, converted into dark matter?

Think about it.
