Caption: Black hole destroying the Earth, illustration. This is a rogue black hole, generating tidal forces that are ripping the planet apart. A black hole is formed when a massive object collapses under the force of its own gravity, increasing the gravitational pull to the point where, beyond a boundary known as the event horizon, nothing, not even light, can escape.
