^thats what I also suggested duster. Because the assumption is that a black hole can have any mass. As i`ve said in ealier posts. The only issue is that constant rate in which the event horizon being equivalent to a super mass black hole apply. I also began to realize that a black hole also must have a limit to its expansion. Believing that nothing is constant in the universe as of now ( which defeats my idea of matter being a constant).
Even if we could make a contained black hole (impossible) that would mean we would have the energy of the reactions to a Super nova implosion.

^^Forgive me... not too strong on the physics side of it... (i'm more on the philosophical side of it and the planet side of things... ) My specialty is going to be extrogalactic planetation... not much with black holes... I may be at my limit of knowledge here.

(AKA more of what hapens on other planets climate wise.. and atmospheric research.... )

Edit (again): damnit lost my train of thought... gimme a sec -ok.. As far as I know... they dont know if there is an end to a black hole... what the amount of mass that has to be consumed (or squashed) into it to make the extreme gravitational pull stop. I don't believe, however that they are limitless... My thought is that It must consume as much energy back into itself as it released upon creation. (if that makes any sense)

Thats actually my weaker side of knowledge. Guess were at odds
But i`m into physics perspectives of the universe. My focus is more on the quantum side of things. But I enjoy planetary associated ideas. I think i`m gonna make a topic on a specific planet. Jupiter seems to be a point of interest.

OH I like jupiter.... are you going to include the moons? you could just make it on our solar system in general... and the satelites of the planets... as well as the planet Xena thoery and the pluto issue... so many things! so few topics!

@ dusterbayala - i noticed ur from IL.. r u by any chance studying at U of Chicago?

i heard there were recent rumors of a "god particle" that gives mass to other particles... wut would that mean to the whole theory that matter cant be created nor destroyed?

^ no... i'm not at U of chicago... I'll be going however to NIU soon... (close enough for me to commute and work and raise my daughter...by close i mean it's two hours away)

Edit: ^btw I've heard about that too, but i think it's just theory... (that relates more to the philosophical side of astronomy...) But I don't know much about that. Will look into it, tho

I`ll be sure to include Jupiter's satellites. Also the discovery of Pluto not being an actual planet. Which doesnt seem to be accepted by the scientific community. Maybe because their like "ah F**k we were wrong dammit how are we gonna re-right 100s of years of history on pluto"

edit: I vaguely remember reading a article. Saying that theirs 2 planets in the blind spot of the sun. I`m not sure though because it was approximately 3 to 4 years ago.

I`m gonna definitely lookin into what you said wushu. Sounds pretty damn interesting. Kinda would throw the physics community into turmoil

@ senb
Thank you! I love jupiter's moons... they're more interesting to me than the actual planet!
I mean hell Europa... come on! it's freaking awesome! an almost complete ice moon, that probably has liquid water in it! How exciting is that?

^ ah oh well... my uncles a physics prof at u. chicago.. thought u mite kno him by chance...

found the article bout the god particle...

Yea it definitely is something of excitement. I thought they recently made an exploration to the moon. Or their preparing on embarking on one. I mean if we discovered the secrets of that moon we could change the idea that life can exist in other situations. I`ll make the topic 2morrow i`m gonna go offline for now see ya every *waves to every1 later*

interesting

Edit: Senb - Yeah they are working on the planning stages for that... They need to figure out a way that they can drill through the ice crust and enter into the water section, without adding contamination from earth or space... we want to study it... not kill it. there could even be life there... who knows?

I Believe It's True Cause Some Astrologists Say That Glbal Warming Might Not Kill Us As Fast As We Want And We Live Long..But What If There Was Something That Can Kill Us In A Blast...Well, There's Chemicals And Elements Out There Out Of Our World That Might Combine And Can Cause An Explosion That Can Burst The Sun And With No Sun, Our Lives End...Basically..Thats Wat I Watched On The Discovery Channel...Scary...

Yeah the sun will be gone in about 40 billion years...(or is it 400billion) either way I'll be loooong dead then.
Global warming is bullshit... don't get me started on that. see my posts in the global warming thread. I have charts and scientific facts to back me up...

i'm pretty sure we can survive global warming, unless ofcourse the outside heat goes up to skin-boiling-hot and we start decaying over night =/

but anyway.. that whole light speed decreasing thing.. i can't see how light can slow down or speed up. i mean, it's not exactly like a projectile that can be launched by some kind of equipment. it's like saying time can slow down(ofcourse if it does, nothing in the universe would notice it)

hmm, well.. i guess the light waves could slow down. but, the visual light itself slowing down is just weird.. but then again, we wouldn't notice that either.. it's like having a light source next to you, the light has been travelling for like a million years, and all of a sudden you see it.. you're like, whoa.. where'd that come from??

but you wouldn't know it was a million year old light..you'd think it came out of nowhere xD

anyone get what i'm saying? ^__^;


edit: you know.. i'm wondering.. when they say nothing can be faster than the speed of light.. does that include the internet?

^lol to your edit... no the internet is not faster than the speed of light.. it is electrical impulses that have to sent and read... it's fast yes... but not faster than the speed of light...

Light speeding up and slowing down... the light waves that you see are actually only a small section of the light spectrum.... and they do get effected by gravitational pull. Light can completely dissappear into a black hole (hence the BLACK hole) However... what you actually see of light is waves that DON'T get absorbed into whatever object you are looking at...
So the reflected light waves can be altered (think looking through water here) and even disrupted. So light can be sped up or slowed down, due to external sources.
