Question & Answer 1 – Emily Critchley

Question 1

I am an event horizon three
solar masses worth. I exceed
the Tolman-Oppenheimer-
Volkoff limit and drag a
lifetimes worth of hospital
x-rays with me. Either
thirteen point 7 billion light
years, or thirteen Alex

Chiltons – walking home
from school, knee high in
the red fjord. 1989. ‘We’d
be stable if we could just
find our own value’ – yet I
exceed the Chandrasekhar
limit, I’m ready to explode.
What pushes you to the limit?
