So what will happen with black holes as the universe ages and dies around them?

  • Again, we don't know but we have some ideas based on our current understanding of physics: Hawking radiation.
  • In quantum field theory the vacuum of space is boiling with quantum fluctuations.

These flucutuations are creating matter and antimatter pairs of paricles from nothing wich only exist for a very short time before annihilating.

Theoretical black holes

Theoretical black holes

Also, basically everything you've ever read about black holes, is about theoretical black holes that aren't spinning, because their math is so much easier.

Black hole

Black holes do not just bend the stage, they are like trap doors. Places with so much mass that the universe formed a 'no-go' zone where the rules change.

Inside a big black hole

Inside a big black hole

If you got to the center of a galaxy and find a massive black hole, you might be able to experience crossing the event horizon.

  • As you approach the event horizon, a distant observer would think they never saw you enter it, seeing you stop and fade.

In the center of the black hole, we find the singularity. A single point with all the matter that has ever crossed the event horizon, all crushed to a point infinitely small.

The singularities of rotating black holes are even wilder. The rotation causes them to swell outwards into a sort of rinularity.

This rotation is so powerfull, that space itself is dragged along.

Event horizon

Event horizon

If you look directly at a black hole it looks like nothing. the space is under their control is blocked by an invisible one way border called the event horizon.

The event horizon forms a sheel around a region of space that, once entered, is shielded from the rest o...

But getting close to a black hole can be incredibly dangerous. A painful death by 'spaghettification' awaits you.

Because you feet are closer to the black hole than your head they feel a stronger pull of gravity, enough to pull you apart.

What would happen if you would try to get close to a black hole?

First of all, you would see the strangest funhouse mirror in the universe. Matter isn't the only thing orbiting a black hole: Gravity is so strong near them that light can orbit too.

Space and time

Space and time

Space and time are the grand stage where the play of the universe unfolds. But space isn't a fixed stage and doesn't tick the same for everyone everywhere. In short, they are relative. Matter bends space and bent space tells matter how to move.

We can still observe black holes because of ther effect on matter. Things can orbit black holes just as they can orbit the sun or a planet.

Will we ever truly understand black holes? Really know whats going on inside them?

Will we ever truly understand black holes? Really know whats going on inside them?

No one knows. We can only see their outsides, and the theories we have probably get their insides wrong.

But it's okay not to now everything. It just means there is still work to be done. It means there are still mysteries to be solved and big dead to t...

Gravity alters time

Gravity also alters the passage of time itself. The stronger the gravity the slower time passes. While you watch the universe above you speed up, those far away will watch you in slow motion.

Just like fundamental particles, the properties of singularrities are the best ways we can describe them on paper, rather than an accurate representation of reality. 

Our current theories about the universe, namely general relativity are just not able to descrive or explain them.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
