Can a black hole form from nothing?
A black hole is a region of spacetime where gravity is so strong that nothing—no particles or even electromagnetic radiation such as light—can escape from it. The theory of general relativity predicts that a sufficiently compact mass can deform spacetime to form a black hole.
What can form a black hole?
A black hole can be formed by the death of a massive star. When such a star has exhausted the internal thermonuclear fuels in its core at the end of its life, the core becomes unstable and gravitationally collapses inward upon itself, and the star’s outer layers are blown away.
Is our universe in a black hole?
The birth of our universe may have come from a black hole. Most experts agree that the universe started as an infinitely hot and dense point called a singularity. It is, in fact, and some physicists say they could be one and the same: The singularity in every black hole might give birth to a baby universe.
How can you go to the future?
Time travel: five ways that we could do it
- Time travel via speed. This is the easiest and most practical way to time travel into the far future – go really fast.
- Time travel via gravity.
- Time travel via suspended animation.
- Time travel via wormholes.
- Time travel using light.
Can life exist in a black hole?
Even light, the fastest-moving thing in our universe, cannot escape – hence the term “black hole.” The radial size of the event horizon depends on the mass of the respective black hole and is key for a person to survive falling into one. A person falling into a supermassive black hole would likely survive.
What if there was no time?
In zero seconds, light travels zero meters. If time were stopped zero seconds would be passing, and thus the speed of light would be zero. Nothing can travel faster than light (let alone infinitely fast) without gaining infinite mass and energy, according to Einstein’s theory of relativity.
What is the closest black hole to US?
The closest black hole we know of is V616 Monocerotis, also known as V616 Mon. It’s located about 3,000 light years away, and has between 9-13 times the mass of the Sun. We know it’s there because it’s located in a binary system with a star with about half the mass of the Sun.
How far is the closest black hole?
The closest black holes yet discovered are several thousand light-years away. They are so far that they have no effect on Earth or its environment. A supermassive black hole appears to inhabit the center of the Milky Way galaxy, about 27,000 light-years away.
How are black holes discovered?
Black holes are a spatial anomaly that can be found by asking Priest Entity Nada in the Space Anomaly for “a shortcut to the centre”, or by stumbling upon them in a Black Hole System. If you learn the location of a black hole by talking to Nada, it will appear as a Waypoint selection at the top of your galactic map.
