    I've seen it and it is good, however, it doesn't even play the same story line here.

    Bottom line, even she made it back to tell the story.

    With a black hole there is NOONE to come back and tell a story. A wormhole is different than a black hole at least the theory of it.

    IMHO and it may be wrong and I have no proof of it but my own opinion that I will explain later. The theory is the Universe is an expanding universe and that everything that expands much contract. Well what if these black holes take matter and at the other end extract it to prevent the universe from contracting back in on itself?

    While you thunkers figure this out, I have to fill my log book out and balance my check book.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    PASADENA, Calif. The most massive black hole yet weighed lurks at the heart of the relatively nearby giant galaxy M87.

    The super massive black hole is two to three times heftier than previously thought, a new model showed, weighing in at a whopping 6.4 billion times the mass of the sun.



    For those who share a similar passion and astonishment as I do when discussing astronomy, the dimensions of this black hole are truly awe inspiring.

    I read an article recently that discussed the possible theories concerning the activity of matter at a quantum physics level as it enters an event horizon of a black hole. Also mentioned was varying theories discussing the validity of the proposed theories of what occurs at the singularity of a black hole where matter is crushed to an infinite density and the disappearance of space time as we know. I think I have a decent grasp on the very basics of the material and terminology, but I get my mind blown every time.

    An exciting frontier in my opinion, new theories are being introduced quite frequently. This theories each present unique perspectives and put a spin on new theories and make improvement upon old theories and subsequently shine light on areas that weren't thought of prevviously.

    I would be interested in what Stephen Hawking has to say concerning the recent discovery of the new super massive black hole. Although the black hole in itself does not present any new fields to be studied in itself, the sheer magnitude of it is certain to raise a number of questions and hypotheses.
    Wow, that sure is one big black hole

    Right, she made it back to tell her story, but with out any evidence except the 18 hours or whatever of static there was on the videotape.

    Not counting the 20 minutes of laughing that ensued from the funny pictures thread in the basement I believe.

    No it was a wormhole. A tunnel that punches through the fabric of space time similar to what is theorized about the singularity of a black hole. Although the singularity is exactly that. An infinitely small point that is infinitely dense, so no matter would be able to eject out from it.

    Cool, but the Cubs still won't have won another World Series yet.
