Everyone is talking black holes today.
I love it!

Like I said it’s like life and death are eternal forces of nature 😐you can’t measure death but it’s their and you can’t messure life but it’s their 😐also how do scientists know the universe is 14 billion years old ?🤔how can that be so? Like creating super massive black holes?🤔and eventually the universe will be dominated but them but if it’s true about black holes then how do you explain our very existence?🤔 like 14 billion years? Just to form everything? It does not make since 😑also as I said without life you can’t get death and without death their is no life 😑saying everything is 14 billion years old seems kind of off and ok in a cosmic web does the cosmic web end?😐but the question remains ? How did the universe form? And we may thing it will have a end however it does not explain the beginning of the cosmos in the first place😑

looks like neural pathways in the brain and could be infinite universes in infinite brains

Could a super massive backwhole be a really young stars that just collapsed in on itself and it just sucks in its whole gallexy

How can the universe be 14 billion years old? When matter first formed ? The universe may be much older then we think it is 😐sure once we are dead we are dead 😑 but how would we know earth would even form in the first place ?🤔in fact before we were born we remember nothing Beacuse we did not exist and when we die we won’t remember anything Beacuse we won’t exist 😑now you can’t just jump from one planet to another if galaxies are living in black holes and new or baby stars are forming earth may be only one planet but that does not explain how or why it even evolved in the first place 😑and even so is it possable that a new earth could form and we could evolve again ?😐it may seem impossible but look we are here are we not?😐

When a white dwarf collapses, we get a neutron star. When a neutron star collapses, we get a black hole. Now given, it would have to be really big, but what happens when a black hole collapses?

Why was it Today (12, May 2022) that my local news just found out/released that our Galaxy (Milky Way) has a Black Hole at it's center?
Thanks to this Channel (and others) I have known for at least 6 Months!
Not to mention that the Andromeda Galaxy is CURRENTLY colliding with our Milky Way…

Saw this guy from Neil deGrasse Tysons show StarTalk

Neerav Trivedi May 12, 2022 - 10:09 PM

I wonder if our universe is far older than 13.8 billion years?

Eco Smith May 12, 2022 - 10:09 PM

they come from Muse albums…just the one album

I'm betting that Supermassive Black Holes are left over from other Big Bangs, not our Big Bang.

Black holes are what’s known as an “ad hoc” theory. Models of gravitation are known to be crude approximations. They break down completely as scale decreases below the subatomic level, which is the whole foundation of string theory, and the search for a grand unified theory, one which reconciles quantum mechanics with general relativity, finding a model that explains one force that finds expression in the four fundamental forces. Problem with black holes, as well as Dark Matter, is that we extrapolate a broken theory out to extreme scales and then make additional models on top of those. Instead of acknowledging that these models are insufficient, we cover them with newspaper and gaslight ourselves.
Another issue is stellar mechanics. We truly don’t know how stars function, despite the appearance of absolute confidence in mainstream astrophysics. There are a number of competing models in fact, all of which lead to very different circumstances around the life cycles and potential supernova events they undergo at the end of these cycles. Professor Pierre Robataille with YT channel Sky Scholar has some great information on this.
Yet another issue are neutron stars. They violate accepted laws of physics both in their proposed creation and inner mechanics. Yet neutron stars are a foundational aspect to the formation of supposed black holes.
There are many other grave issues with modern astrophysics, most important IMO is the notion of cosmic redshift having been disproven as a gauge of distance by professor Halton Arp in the 80s/90s. This is why I left the field years ago, it’s become polluted with ad hoc theory masquerading as absolute fact, and the unwillingness of scientists to acknowledge these serious deficits is downright offensive.
It’s not an easy field to study, since we have no laboratories large enough to really examine and test all these models, but we do need to be honest about how little we actually know, and about our current limitations.

i make em when i take a dump, space nor time can handle my movements, why we arent killed yet idk you tell me .

When i found out Black holes are actually more of a solid mass… This made so much more sense

100% Peanuts May 13, 2022 - 3:51 AM

They are Not Holes ! i feel they should be renamed.

Mike Rowe always sounds like he has a sinus cold.

I want to know why gravity is claimed to be 3d but in actuality is only 2 d.

Mae Milev May 13, 2022 - 10:25 AM

The only black hole i see is her face mold!

THE 1ST BLACK HOLE ARE CAME FROM THE SKIN OF THE GOD CALLED GRAVITY, AND THE 1ST BLACK HOLE CAME FROM THE SKIN OF THE GOD ARE TRILLION OF TRILLION OR CANNOT COUNT HOW MANY AND THAT IS A GIANT STAR OF THE GALAXY,, THE BLACK HOLE INSIDE THE GALAXY ARE CAME FROM THE BIRTH OF GIANT STAR IN THE CENTER OF GALAXY USING FOR SUN AND THE BIRTH OF THE SUN ARE ALSO BLACK HOLE USING FOIR PLANET ,MOON ASTEROID AND COMET

Ah the theories and maybes and what ifs 🙄
