ds;ajsdowaadasldajgeahs SO MANY MISCONCEPTIONS. Blackholes dont have a 'huge gravitational field', if you take a solar mass blackhole, its gravitational field is exactly the same as that of the suns (outside the radius of the sun).


sooo are you saying that black holes dont suck in stars and light?

and im sure the sun dosent have enough gravitational force to pull us in as fast as a black hole does, i could be wrong but that was my understanding on black holes... and the sun....


The concept of 'suck in' is a total fallacy that you should try get out of your head to be honest. They only 'suck in' light below a specific radius from the 'center' (the hole part of the black hole) called the event horizon, for a solar mass (ie if the sun turned into a black hole) thats 3km, if you get 3km away from the center of the sun things are pretty dire. The thing that makes the difference is the density, nothing more, nothing less


oh... i see, well i just learnt something!

thank you

The Black Hole in my heart is starting to dissipate. Oh I heard this on school. A teacher told me. If you go in there you just get compressed into nothing a number or mathematics can define. It's weird. Incomprehendable but interesting.

Almost comical, if you've ever taken 6th grade science you'd know this.
Black holes are an opening in space itself, caused when an object of great mass causes a rupture (like a star going supernovae). Nobody knows what would happen if someone went through a black hole, because they would be dead. To put in perspective, you'd be stretched out to about the thickness of a sheet of paper. However, there are a set of opposite occurrences, known as white holes, that shoot out matter.
To answer your questions directly, time doesn't exist in a black hole. There are no physics, time, light, anything. As for the light thing, its not about speed, its about direction. Black holes have an infinite pull of gravity, and light has a finite speed. Anything with an infinite pull will inevitably take what has finite properties.
We don't need to necessarily see black holes to know they're there. In all reality, we have no proof. The concept of a black hole is all theoretical since we technically can't prove it. Usually scientists determine where they are when light is obscured, because the hole will pull the light around it inside. There are far more than we know of, because we can't see them all.


Why did you have to reply with a dig at the user? He asked because he didn't know.

The fact that Leonard Suskind was right and Stephen Hawking was wrong about information loss in black holes lead to the notion of a holographic universe is completely mind blowing.

Not sure if this is the right section to post about this topic, but I've just been really curious about black holes. Where would you end up if you went through a black hole? Do you think there is another galaxy when you go through a black hole??? Does time change in a black hole????? Also, someone asked me this question, but if nothing travels faster than light, how does a black hole pull light inside of it?

What do you guys think??? Would be nice to hear other peoples thoughts on black holes! =P

And how come we never see black holes....or how do we even know they exist....?


Where would you end up if you went through a black hole?

Unless you got really luckly and found a worm hole, probably stretched when entering the event horizon and then torn apart by the singularity.

Do you think there is another galaxy when you go through a black hole???

If you got lucky and found a wormhole, you'd probably end up at some random point in the universe.

Does time change in a black hole?????

The immense gravity warps space time so an object entering the event horizon would experience time dilation so it would slow down.

Also, someone asked me this question, but if nothing travels faster than light, how does a black hole pull light inside of it?

The gravity is so immense that the escape velocity is greater than the speed of light, so nothings traveling faster than light but the speed of light is not enough to over come the pull of gravity from a black whole. Astronomers have already observed gravity ability to bend light creating a lens effect around massive objects.

simulation of the gravitational lens effect of a black hole.
