Black holes are the most powerful and extreme things in the universe and they are wildly weird and complicated. What would happen if you fell inside one and what are they really?

    Kinda a random question but since you've done a lot of space exploration videos, do you think we will be able to inhabitate other planets soon enough to survive. Also it would be funny if we had established in many different planets and evolve different although it would be risky since racism is a think in a single planet

    I hope you guys know noone has actually detected or seen a singularity. The prediction was done on the basis of mathematics, same with naked singularities. We are basically proving the maths we have been doing for a hundred years is correct and universe works the way we know. It is stupid and a total waste of time just cz you don't wana hear that we wasted so much of time proving something which didn't have a base. Singularity in mathematics is defined by infinite density in a 1D point, which is why Einstein simply laughed at this idea and moved on. I am sure blackholes don't work the way scientists want them to. But as humans, we lIke to predict stuff and put years into the research and then we realize neh. Same with the functioning of betelguese, we claim so many things about stars, yet we are not able to correctly predict the time of its supernova. So they opened a good window Rangin 300-400 years, and Hoping it would set off between this period. As a hardcore science student, I know the mindset of rest of the students. They are intrigued by black holes and stuff and this is wat they think is true. But it's not. Just to keep people engaged and keep getting the high funding, we are just moving along.

      I hope you realize that every scientist knows this already, a theory is all we have until we can interact with a black hole's sigularity (aka never). So we just have to keep hammering on the theories until something pops out.

      You don't have to physically touch something to observe it. Some very smart and dedicated people created theories which predicted black holes and their behavior. Then we looked out into the cosmos (again through the work of very smart and dedicated people) and saw things which behaved exactly like these things we predicted. So our theories seem to be pretty accurate at describing these objects we call black holes. Then there are a couple of things we haven't observed experimentally but follow from laws we've confirmed in other contexts that should also apply here. Overall, remember that science doesn't make a claim to ultimate truth. It's just our current best attempt at creating models to predict the universe. And black holes look like a pretty good model so far.

    Could it be that black holes maybe die quite fast if you look from the black holes perspective? I mean that it happens like a "normal" explosion? Just that it takes so long time for us outside the black hole to see it?
