      If it's infinitely dense then how does it have mass

        When I was 8 I used to think that when people say that black holes are very dense it meant that they were very dumb

        But I was...

          A quarter of light speed for the black hole,wrong,the black hole goes about 1,000,000 light speed. And I'm right!

            Maybe there are black holes at the core of every star?

              The hunt should be on for the opposite of a blackhole, a whitehole! This could be a distortion in our spacetime that could leak matter into our space and time, or leak antimatter into our space time.

                A black hole 47 times the size of the distance from the sun to Pluto lmao!!!

                  I’m guessing when a sun explodes, part of the energy released causes atoms to become smaller than the original size, almost like a powder compared to a normal atom. This causes the density and the mass to increase tremendously, causing a supernatural amount of gravity. After this process, everything around a black hole gets sucked in further increasing the mass on the black hole. Some of this mass comes from light, causing the dark effect.

                          So the big bang was a final black whole that exploded with shit when it ate the last thing from the last world :D

                            What if the Big Bang was two supermassives from a previous universe that collapsed into eachother causing a massive explosion (the Big Bang) spitting out all matter from inside creating a new universe

                                  Excellent video, very clear explanation. I especially liked the explanation on Hawking radiation which I did not know about before.

                                    Maybe there was no big bang, and all the matter in the universe was formed from Hawking's Radiation near a massive black hole.  Does this mean the next universe will be anti-matter?

                                        I’m pretty sure if you replaced the sun with a black hole a lot more damage would be done than just earth freezing over. The gravitational pull would be much greater. The orbits of all of the planets in our solar system would be changed and depending on the size of the black hole, would be sucked in sooner or later

                                            how far away or how close to the singularity you are does not matter. when you reach the event horizon (the point of no return) is when its over for you. its called the point of no return because nothing can escape from it... not even light. witch means black holes make everything travel faster then the speed of light. that the part that does not make sense because one rule of the universe is that nothing is suposed to travel faster then light, no matter how much you try you will never reach the last decimal. so if you where to travel trough a black hole you will literally brake the universe rules. you would not notice anything when you reach the event horizon because your body would not be able to handle traveling at the speed of light. but if you where to watch someone travel trough a black hole you would see them get closer and closer and all of a sudden the will look like they just froze/time stoped for them. they will turn purple by time and slowly fade into nothing. they just broke one of the universe rules and the universe cant handle something traveling at the speed of light that contains information (something of mass) the only thing that is supposed to travel that fast is light and one more thing that we know can and does even travel faster then the speed of light. guessed it? darkness. darkness is literally nothing wich means it can travel faster then light. if all light in the universe would fade it would still take the speed of light for the darkness to apear because the light disappears at the speed of light. one way to measure this is if you had a BIG headlamp at moon (just imagine its possible) and you stick your hand infront of it your shadow will be on the moon. then you take your finger at one side of the moon and quickly point it at the other end. congrats! your shadow just traveled faster then light. ofcourse this is not possible and there are more stuff to think of to make this possible. but its true and darkness is always in one way faster then light. i hope you understand this... you see im from sweden so im just trying to explain this as good as i can :)

                                                    In simple words

                                                    When a star consumes all of it's fuel, or when a star dies, it forms into a black hole with zero volume and infinite density, It also has a very powerful magnetic field that even a light can not escape from it
