you can`t see black holes. their gravity is too great for light to escape

I didn`t think anything could escape the gravity of a black hole.
Right?

hey. read the comments people. its a computer simulation written by some (amateur) guy. this is NOT a black hole. its just called black hole.

IceUck I agree, this is almost certainly a computer simulation. Space isn`t 2D, you would see a star at least behing it. Not only that, the event Horizon is the point where nothing can escape, where the force pulled on mass is stronger than the speed of light and the only way to escape it is to impossibly go faster than the speed of light. So to see this matter/radiation going in and out and around means this isn`t even a good simulation.

For all the folks pointing out that you can`t see a black hole...

No, you can`t see the black hole itself (whatever "it"--an infinitely small point of infinite density--is), but the matter that goes swirling into it gets hotter and hotter, and gives off all kinds of radiation before it passes into the event horizon.

If the black hole is feeding on nearby stars or whatever, you probably *can* see the white hot shell of gas and dust around it.

I call shenanigans. This looks suspiciously like a computer simulation (of something else). From what I`ve seen and read about black holes, the motion and speed are all wrong. Plus there`s no way we`d get such a detailed, sharp image. That thing`d have to be in the solar system for an image that good...

how come you can see colour if black holes suck in all light around it?

People, black holes dont lead anywhere like portals. They crush matter into infintely small paritcles and eject the rest into space in the form of jets, which can reach light-years in length.

you cant see black holes, but you can see the stars orbiting it and you cant see hawking radiation either because its not in the visible light spectrum (plus if we did see it we would be dead)and light can be shown by stars that are between us and the black hole because the light doesnt go near it, just straight to us

lawl!!

"Black hole is an application made with Processing. I have been working on it for few last months.
Making it I had to learn some OpenGL and remind my math backgrounds, but I hope it was worth it. At the beginning I wanted to create a dark sphere with dynamic glow. Using a OpenGL substractive blending and simple math transformation I created a resizing glow similar to cloud or nebula."

i do not think this is a black hole i think this sar is just collappsing, the reason i say this is because due to the fact no light is showed in a black hbole, so in that thoery we cannont see a black hole except with a negative phote in withch case it would be black, no if we folow this theory even further we would not see the stars behind this and once they got close enough they would all together disapear. as ice fire said "Im no expert, but i don`t think that this is a black hole yet. I think this is what is called a red giant which is a star that is collapsing and will make a black hole. And i dont think we can see black holes we just have ways of calculating where they are." which i am in total agreement with. so ponder that every one.

Yes I know r stands for the distance between them. I was just using faulty logic, thinking that r was measured from the surface, not the center. And yes, I still think this is fake. Going back to the point, if the sun turned into a black hole, it would not suck the solar system into it. In the equation Fg = Gm1m2/r^2, the mass of the sun does not change, it just gets denser. None of the other variables change either, so the earth (as well as the other planets) would just keep orbiting it. The only way the mass of the black hole could get bigger, is if it absorbed something and the only way that would happen is if something gets on a collision course to hit it. Usually, only comets and asteroids will collide with celestial bodies, so the mass will only increase by miniscule amounts (compared to its total mass). In conclusion, black holes emit hawking radiation, and if it doesn`t absorb anything, they disappear.

Hopefully everyone will now go through wikipedia to read up on black holes and whether or not we can "see" them.

i dont understand what we are looking at here...
i was thinking when i read the description there would be something getting gradually sucked into a black hole or something along those lines. i heard things look like they stretch when theyre getting sucked into a black hole. but idk. im no science major, but i dont think this looks like any description of a black hole ive ever heard.

it looks more like an animation, of like some kind of a star or something, just kinda..being a star. flailing around and stuffs. O.o

How is this video even possible? The gravity a black hole has will prevent anything from leaving it, INCLUDING LIGHT ITSELF. So even if it where to "spew out" plasma, we wouldn`t even be able to see it. I call fail as well.

Having now actually seen the video, yeah, that`s not what it would look like. The singularity is always either a point, or a line. I understand the spinning was rotating the camera, but it would look considerably different as you went around it. I call fail :(

"do black holes even have rotational velocity? looked like a black hole sun, woontcha come, lol idk why i thought of that..."

Depends, is it a rotating black hole, or a non-rotational black hole? I guess a rotating one, would have to, by nature, rotate at a very real speed.

Also, particles that haven`t reached the event horizon, are still moving around and bouncing off each other, they can reach escape velocity, it`s just unlikely for a particular particle to, for a particle to, it is fairly likely.

So no-one knows what a Black Hole is?
Guys, they DO spew out matter, Relativistic jets, or "Gas Jets"
Plasma is a form of matter, it sends out quite a lot of it too. Theorized that it`s how almost all the heavy elements in the galaxy were made.

unless the light particles had something to bounce off of, like an astronaut or shuttle or a piece of sheet metal for that matter, but the oscillating particles are around the whole mass. If that much energy was given off we would be able to detect black holes easily.

This makes no sense to me. Light would travel in a straight line and relay back at a slower intervals until it reached the event horizon where it would look like a still picture until it faded forever. unless this animation represents gamma radiation or dark matter, i don`t see how the oscillating particles would apply to an object with such a gravitational density.

How is this "thing" a black hole at all?
All i see is a black circle with bright dots flying around it

to Cefca
Gravity has to increase somehow,
The only proof I can give is the best visual example we have of a black hole,
its in a Binary star system (two stars orbiting each other)
When one finally becomes a black hole, it will start pull the gas out of the other, this is how we know that the gas will form a disk around the black hole as it is being pulled in.
Remember Black holes are the Thorn in scientists side`s we really don`t know much about them except they hare dense, and they emit x-rays.
So who knows, Black holes might have an entirely different set of gravitational rules to them.

Ether way, we will all die before that when the sun expands into a red giant, Mercury, Venus, and Earth will be vaporised, Mars will become a ba

"Since the radius increases, the gravity actually gets weaker until you cross the event horizon."

In that equation, r is not radius - It is the distance between the two different objects. And a black hole does nothing but merely suck in more mass, thus increasing its own mass. That would eventually suck in whatever the second object is, caling r to become SMALLER, dividing the gravitational pull to become larger.

I don`t really believe in black holes though. Because if they really did exist, eventually everything would get sucked into them. Why is earth still here after millions of years? o_O

I think this video is fake. I learned in physics that black holes do not have any greater gravity than what it was before... That is until you cross the event horizon. The equation for the force of gravity is:
Fg = (G*m1*m2)/r^2.
Since the radius increases, the gravity actually gets weaker until you cross the event horizon. By the way, the event horizon is extremely close to the black hole itself. A black hole will not just start sucking the entire universe into it (contrary to popular belief). Something has to pretty much collide with it for it to suck it in. If the sun were to turn into a black hole right now, the earth would keep orbiting it as if it were still the sun.

It`s an edited video kids. The reason it`s called a black hole is because everything is drawn back to it, even light. A better visualization fo a true black hole is available here.

But surely black holes are invisible. Their gravitational pull is enough to pull in light, so therefore we wouldn`t see any of that stuff surely? Unless it just false colour of detected particles :).

Because I know that when a micro black hole goes in front of a sun, it can really distort the sun and make it look weird...

I don`t know if it is real, but i think that you can see matter orbiting a black hole before it passes the event horizon. If it`s not just an I Tunes music visualizer, that`s what that glowy junk it is. Also, it can`t possible be actual footage. We don`t have any footage of a black hole. The only reason we know that they exist is because we can see the objects orbiting them. If it`s real, it`s a computer simulation.

... People are so thick! Of course you cannot see a black whole with your naked eye, but that doesn`t mean that our scientists don`t have a pretty educated guess as to how they perform and such, which would allow them to create such a render to demonstrate what it would look like if we could view it.

yeah not a black hole, stuff comes out of a black hole, not go in. and kaagan, xrays arent going to penetrate anything as dense as a black hole, so all wed see is a big circle where the film isnt developed, which is pretty much what wed see if we looked at them anyways

thats not real, we`re unable to see black holes as in not even light can escape from it so there for completely invisible. and if we could see black holes, we`ll have to use x-ray (the same way we view anti matter) and x-ray do not display in color.

at the moment we have only one way of studying a black hole
you need a black hole with a sister star which are rotating around each other the black hole slowly sucks in it`s sister star in a spiral which allows us to measure the strength and size of the black hole depending on the size of the spiral
understandably it`s a rare ocourance so we still don`t have much data on black holes

the video was interesting tho

Halagad is right. You can`t literally "see" a black hole. Its gravitational force is so strong that even light can`t escape it. A real black hole would appear to just be a black spot in space from every angle because any light close enough is pulled in.

CGI for sure, a black hole has never been observed and will never be observed until space travel is possible. A real black hole has never actually been "seen" only speculated by how light and matter moves around a certain area in space. It has yet to be proven rather black holes actually exist or not. Nice render but black holes are not that big and matter wouldn`t swirl around the entire thing like that it would go around the hole sort of like the rings around Saturn.
