Ying asked, "Professor, what does this represent? Why is the light creating these pictures?"

Alan replied, "Because of gravity. This fragment’s mass is one-thousandth the sun’s mass. That is so much greater than the new planet’s as the new planet’s mass is but only one over several ten thousands of the sun’s mass. Furthermore, such a high mass is so compressed to a stage where we still can’t spot it from one hundred thousand kilometers away.

"With such a high mass and small volume, the gravity field that it creates is powerful enough that even light can only traverse it in parabolic state. In other words, one needs to achieve the speed of parabolic light to overcome the gravitational pull of this fragment…"
