Black holes, space, time...high content stuff

Recommended Posts

Seeing the image of this black hole sent me down a Google / YouTube wormhole.

 

M87 is about 50-60m light years away ( first head f*** ) and approx 1,000 times larger than the black hole in our galaxy, Sagittarius A.

 

Standing at the event horizon, you’d be able to see the back of your own head, and one theory that I hadn’t previously entertained was the possibility of an object past the horizon that was responsible for the black hole effect...like a galactic Mark Lawrenson sucking all life and matter out of space.

Was watching a programme last night about black holes, and their theoretical possibility; but improbability; as put forward by Einstein.

 

One thing they kept describing was their creation from the collapse of a star, and that there are most likely thousands of them in our own galaxy. But what they didn't seem to touch on was, how and from what are super-massive black holes at the centre of galaxies formed?

Probably mergers of many black holes as gravity has concentrated stars and matter at the centre of galaxies.

 

 

Could a generational starship use a black hole as a portal to another dimension

Why isn’t it your business ?

how do you know I haven't already worked it out? then it's no longer my business, as it's sorted

 

anyway, was a quote from a Woody Allen film iirc when he's worried about volcanoes and s*** and his mum/nan/aunt asks him that

I'll look it up

It was 1979.

 

In an alternative universe, is there a Macca who occasionally posts without factual inaccuracies?

 

We were taken by school to see it in the local cinema just before Christmas 79, last day before the holidays.

 

It is sheee-ite.

f***'s sakes - released Dec 1979. I was 8 so remembering is as the 80s isn't too bad.

 

Next time I'll consult google before I post anything that may be a week or two inaccurate over the course of almost 40 years

You know how to use Google? Wow, I had no idea.

Oh I’d hate you to change.
