    Re: black hole

    I need help here too. I don't understand what you wanted to say, unless you had an astronaut in mind

    Are you talking about black holes in outer space?

    Re: black hole

    I want to be a space scientist. I make up my mind to do my utmost to explore and crack the mystery of black hole. The gravity of a black hole is powerful enough to slow down time.

    In my opinion,
    Without a previous sentence or more information in the above sentence, it is unclear what "That's" refers to. So you should indicate.. Your desire to be an astronaut is because of ....

    Re: black hole

    I want to study space because I am fascinated by black holes.

    Something like that would be clearer.

    If you want to be more poetic:
    I want to be an astrophysicist because I have fallen in love with the idea of understanding how black holes work.

    Sorry to cut out your fun, guys, but I deleted the posts that I thought might get in the way of helping the original poster.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    But this, on the other hand, is because of the pink stripes, which I detest.

    (That is, there's no point in 'correcting' something when the meaning is totally unclear for lack of contest.)
