  • Wait. Something confuses me. 9:45 So if a black holes lifetime is 10 to the power of 67 years, why does this say that 10 to the power of 21 it loses barely any mass when its already a quarter through its lifetime. Did i miss something or am i just a dumbass??

  • Just one doubt. You guys said that black hole has no memory or information of it's past, while Dr. Leonard Suskind proved that information is not lost but conserved on the surface of a black hole (Holographic law).

  • I think our universe is like a battery, and just like every battery the energy is limited as long entropy does its job. So these first bilion years are just the "spark", while the hawking radiation, after all that has left in universe is black holes, its the estable state of this batery. For zilions of years...

  • I just love how this is all presented as factual... when in reality this is all theoretical. There isn't even a way to prove most of the information put forward. Spaghettification!!! Thats some real technical lingo. If you go through a black hole as a man you will be spit out the other end as a woman because black holes alter the sexual orientation of living things that pass through them!!! There see anyone can make stuff up!!! Go ahead prove me wrong!!!

  • How could we ever get information from the inside? Any probe or data monitored would not be able to send the information back right? Unless we create some sort of data transmission that superseded light.

  • “What is going on?” You may ask, after the mission that you took on of picking up a space fragment, you went out of your space ship and came out into a strange place, you try to go back but you don’t know how. “I should never got out, my companions need me to come back” you may think, but can you point out where you want to go? No? So grow up and find out, come up with some idea, your oxygen is running out, you don’t have much time left, I think, set up something. “How?” you may ask, well I don’t know, since that event horizon… oh it turns out that you are in a black hole, so get comfy you are probably the last living being in the universe and there is no way out. “What?” You may say.
