    hey, if you want to help us make more videos like this, I want to tell you about the Vox Video L-WAIT DON'T GO! just give me a second- At the end of this i'm going to share a great gif so standby. So the Video Lab is a membership program we set up so that viewers could support our work directly.

    What if a black hole is a worm hole that leads somewhere, would explain why it's so far away from us, maybe we weren't ment to find it

    No matter how far the black hole is in the center of our galaxy, it is slowly pulling everything around it. Our solar system will one day far far into the future be sucked into it.

    The black holes imo are portals acting as a revolving door between the spirit world and natural world. Like the looney toon sign when a cartoon reacts with the real world.

    THIS IS NOT A PICTURE OF A BLACK HOLE! If this was a picture it would've been taken with an optical telescope like Hubble yet it was take via multiple radiotelescopes thus it's an image! Also I wouldn't call it an image of a black hole either for one simple reason - you cannot see a black hole by definition but you can see an Event Horizon and the scientists made an image of it :).

    How do you "know" it's a black hole? You don't! No one does. But some INTERPRET it as one. Some people WANT it to be a black hole. Even though black holes are only hypothetical, mathematical constructs. Think for yourself for a change.

  52. Bugler55

    Bugler55Month ago

    @XY ZW No, but the theory for why we stick to the ground is equally applicable for black holes.

  53. Bugler55

    Bugler55Month ago

    What do you mean hypothetical? I mean is gravity merely a mathematical construct? All these things are just mathematical theories supported by empirical evidence. Could there be another reason we stick to the ground? Certainly, but this is the best theory I've heard.

    Proving theories is nice and all but the point of the video was to explain why know the image of a black hole is such a big deal. The way I see it didn't fulfill its purpose which to explain why the image was such a big deal

    "At the centre of the black hole is a singularity. A point of infinite density." Really? How do you know it's infinitely dense? Isn't it possible that it's finitely dense but beyond our measurement capabilities?

  66. Bugler55

    Bugler55Month ago

    No, because the mass keeps accelerating inwards. If it's finitely dense as in your view, what's in the pinpoint center?
