: I am doing a science project, and I am going to : be making a 3d model of a blackhole. So if you : have any ideas or diagrams, please e-mail me :

Try the classic one of a large rubber sheet stretched between 4 posts a a very, very heavy ball placed in the middle of the sheet. The rubber represents space time and the weight represents the curving of spacetime by a large mass, such as a Black Hole. To get a realistic picture you have to envisage the "hole" in the sheet as being infinitely long and vanishing to a point.
