Example of direct quotations

Dr Yixuan Ma, a well-known  astrophysicist who has been studying black holes, said, "They are the most interesting phenomena we astrophysicists have ever studied."

As she explained, "In black holes the laws of nature do not seem to apply."

"A black hole is a tiny point with the mass 25 times the mass of our sun," explained Ma's associate, Chun-Yi Su. "Black holes are created by the death of a very large star," she stated.

"It is an invisible vacuum cleaner in space," he added, "with tremendous gravitational pull."

According to Dr Su, "If a person falls into a black hole, he will eventually be crushed due to the tremendous gravitational forces."

"Time will slow down for him as he approaches the point of no return," she said, "and when he reaches the point of no return, time will stand still for him."
