Huge black hole

Discussion in 'News and Articles' started by Born2LoveYou, Jan 10, 2008.

  1. Huge black hole

    Astronomers have weighed the biggest known black hole in the Universe.
    The monster celestial object is 18 billion times more massive than our own Sun, says a team from Finland - six times larger than the previous record.

  2. Yeesh...where do you pick up a scale that can weigh that much? Hee hee hee

    That's monstrous!:eek:
  3. I think its amazing whats out in space.

    You look at earth and how big it is, and its nothing compared to Space. To think that the universe could be millions times larger than what we already know. Its just so amazing. And black holes, what if they are some sort of portal to another dimension ? Or there is another universe other than ours, or life on other planets and other planets we have not yet discovered. Imagine getting lost in space!
  4. how can you weigh a hole?nothingto worry about straight is our quest.like pool the cue knocks the baals around.
  5. A black hole is not actually a "hole" but was once a star that has collapsed in itself because it has exhausted its fuel supply, no longer being able to sustain its size. It's size is proportional to the amount of radiating energy that the nuclear reactions within it produce in relation to its overall mass, which is the source of its gravity. Since the mass (gravity)does not diminish as its energy does, its own gravity compresses it continually inward until it reaches a point called singularity- or infinate density. At this point gravity is so pronounced (strong) that not even light escapes its pull, hence the name black hole. It creates a region in space where all matter within the range of its gravitational field(event horizon) and light are pulled into it and compressed into singularity.

    Under these conditions, it would never be possible for a human to survive being sucked into a black hole, as the closer one gets, the greater the gravitational pull. The theory of what would happen, is called spaghettification.The gravty increase in strength the closer you get to the center or singularity, and therefore acts proportionately on whatever foreign matter is being sucked into it. Say your floating torwards the event horizon feet first. Once you enter the event horizon, the gravity increases bit by bit in relation to the closest matter to the black hole. In effect, since the closest matter would be the molecules or atoms in your feet, they would be sucked in with increasingly greater force and speed than the matter furthest away-the top of your head. You would be stretched and stretched and stretched as you went deeper into the ever increasing gravitational vacuum. In essence, you would be turned into spaghetti.
    Black holes are always increasing in mass, as they suck in the matter Aound them(other stars, astroids, planets,whatever) and therefore always increasing in weight and strength. They are in effect, galactic parasites, with a 100% mortality rate of their victims. If a person wants to become one with the universe, black holes are the ticket.
  6. So a black hole is a bit like a whirl pool then ?
  7. A black hole is pure nothing. Gravity that teeters on the edge of infinity, gravity strong enough to prick a tiny hole in the fabric of space-time.

    What I don't get is the event horizon...they say it's a point where nothing can move either forward or back. It's the spot where a permanent image is stamped into the very threads of space, forever.

    But they say, too, that a black hole can't be seen with the naked eye. There's black holes out there that are immense! They've swallowed up stars much bigger than our own.

    So...wouldn't these stars have been stamped into the event horizon? Wouldn't the black hole have so many images stamped into its event horizon that it would be much like a dazzling star in space?

    Also, they say nothing (and then they add in "not even light" even though light is something) can escape the pull of gravity from a black hole.

    Then they say they know there are black holes out there, because a black hole throws off jets of radioactive gases millions of miles into space from its poles.

    Ummm...wouldn't those jets be "something"?

    Am I being difficult again?:eek:
  8. Here's a site that gives a summary of the most popular black hole theories.Its from 1993 so it may be a bit outdated, but it was the easiest I found, so far to, comprehend
    I was wrong on a couple of things, so sorry about that. But hopefully this site will be interesting to yas.
  9. Carolina...don't be sorry.

    Nobody but God can be completely sure, ya know:)

    After all...all we have so far are theories. You have just as much right to have a theory as the rest of anybody.:D
  10. Thanks Whirlwind, but I was wasn't presenting my theory, I was trying to present what I understood someone else's theory, or the main consensus, to be. I just felt I needed to apologize for giving out wrong info. Don't want to be someone who quotes falsehoods as facts, ya know? Thanks for the encouragement though, bro!
  11. Carolina...but we're not going to have facts on black holes until the day we can send someone in - and then get them back out with the data.:p

    Only someone inside the black hole would know the fact. Everybody on the outside would be stuck with their theories. :)

    You could theorize right now that every black hole has a soft, chewy center. Nobody in the world, no matter how scientific they are or how many books they've read, can prove you wrong with any facts they have...because the fact is there have been no facts recovered from the soft, chewy center of a black hole.

    So you're okay.:eek:

    Afterthought: Just because other theories about black holes are popular doesn't mean that they're right. Popularity can't change fact. So everything you say about black holes deserves to be heard and is a valuable contribution. :)
  12. I have seen black holes purportedly spewwing out gamma radiation in streams but if the theory of gravity so strong that even light is sucked in how does this occur? It is for now at least an educated guess.
  13. Lol, I wondered if they ever thought of putting a long-lasted video camera (running) into a black hole and seeing what'd happen? Lol, you know one of those simple in-your-backyard projects, lol. It made be kind of wrong, but it seems funny.

    below is a cute joke, lol. ;)

    Want to find out what's really going on in a "black hole"?
    Then, sign up for the "Black Hole Expedition: ON LIVE CAMERA!" today and get all your video cameras ready, we're going to see what happens inside those "black holes".
    Please read the RULES before signing up with us...please, people!

    1). Older citizens (over the age of 55), are not advised to be brought on the BHE trip. Children under the age of 5 are not advised either, as they are liable to get STRETCHED beyond human comprehension.
    2). Do not eat anything before coming in close range of the black hole. We don't need stretching stomachs and barf bags.
    3). Make sure to bring lots of video cameras. We've already have failed attempts at the pencil one, so at least about 5 or 6 will do - we'll pay the bills, no need to worry.
    4). Wear protective head gear at all times - some of the space citizens are angry around the black hole, it's not our fault if you get hit by a comet, lol.
    5). STAY INSIDE THE SHIP AT ALL TIMES. Don't leave, unless you want to be 10 feet taller than what you are. We haven't figured out how to de-stretch y'all so don't make us anyway.
    6). Recorders are welcome, though the sound may be messed up.
    7). Don't buy expensive video cameras - nothing over $200.00, the most. The consequences of buying that one thousand dollar SONY camera may not be so purty.

    We'll visit our galaxy's black hole(s) [if we make it] and enjoy the galatic neighborhood. Our spaceship features large open windows for personal viewing, beds as hard as rocks, no hot water, canned food, even flying toothpaste! You can even enjoy watched the colorful channel, a channel full of nothing but static! Isn't it wonderful.
    Or, sit down and read a book. No library cards needed.

    Make sure to wear your special protective pressure equipment at all times. Even if you can barely pick up your feet, better than being stretched beyond limits! Right?

    Sign up before March 17th (random year) and pack up...it's going to be an eventful ride.

  14. maybe this is the great gulf.?once in can,t get out.
  15. I just got back from the future!!!:eek: It was incredible! There were all these...oh wait, we're here already.:eek:
  16. this is a total farse. There has never been a black hole observed. There is no literal proof. They are speculating that black holes exsist.

  17. Just like space.

    You can't hear it. Can't taste it. Touch it. Smell it. See it.

    But it's there. All around us.

    Just because we don't understand something doesn't mean that it doesn't exist. God is wonderful, that He gave us limit.

    If all questions were answered to us right when we were born, then there wouldn't be anything curious to learn about while we're growing up. This just makes the adventure a little more bumpy and exciting, don't you think?

  18. stating something without real proof is not science nor does it make it real. The problem is that they claim it too be actual and have no proof. That makes is wrong and foolish..
  19. I see what you mean, freed.
