Imagine, all that mass SO condensed from gravity that it occupies a space smaller than a speck of dust.
`I`d hate to be a short person watching this...`
Im 5``1 and it doesnt make any difference to me at all.
you are currently my hero
Remember, this is the same guy that tried to tell us that if we like the skit "Who`s on First" then we are all sheep.
You are less credible than this video Duffy, and this video itself isn`t that credible to begin with. BTW, I think we all understand that they are not real photos. But thank you for teaching us all what you think we should know.
Valid point sir!! A few other things they do not mention:
-The color "hot pink"-The Rolling Stones-Gravity-Cowboy Hats
Which means that these things are also "BS".
That is all...
And by the way - those aren`t real pictures. Stars still show up as dots, even with the most powerful telescopes. Learn 2 science.
Shut up. Whatever they`re made up of are they`re massive and thats the impressive part. HUGE.
Who cares about the mass? it`s size that matters
I`m pretty sure there was a video similar this one or two years ago...
Just remember that the size of this thing means that the gravitational pull would be so strong that according to theory of general relativity, the light would perceptively travel much much slower than the speed of light as we know it.
It would take that many hours. not years.8,634,022,790.4km divided by 150km *PER HOUR*57560151.936 / 24 = 2398339.664 days2398339.664 / 365.25 = 6566.296 years.
so there you go, Frogtango. six and a half millennia, driving at 150km/h nonstop.
It takes light about 8 hours to travel around the VY Canis Majoris circumference.One light hour equals 1,079,252,848.8 km/h.Eight light hours equals 8,634,022,790.4divided by a constant speed of a car of 150 km/h we get that it would take the car about 57560151.936 years to travel around
Astronomers and scientists estimate that it will take eight years for light to travel around its circumference.
hmm, wikipedia says it would take 8 hours, but i know that is wrong due to some math that im not gonna post, so now we dont know how long it takes light to go around VY CMa!
The only reason I wish I could live longer than the length of an ordinary life is so that I could see how much more we discover. We`re all going to miss out on some HUGE discoveries!
always cool to see how insignificant we are :)
Oh and doesn`t this make you feel so small? I love this stuff.
OH SNAP!!! *brushes dirt off shoulder*
Now I`m really confused, I was expecting a link to MY myspace page...
Buzzer, your intimidating grasp of interplanetary physics is only matched by your ability to form simple sentences with fairly elementary-school spelling, such as "their too small to see".
Please, Buzzer, educate us some more in the error of our ways. More people need to hear of this "Discovery Channel" that you speak of.
