: The truth of the matter is, that for 2 black holes to collide would be totally impossible, and to say `equal mass` is wrong, : as black-holes as we know them break down all matter into radiation, and as radiation has no mass, nor do black-holes. : Where does the radiation goto: Who knows?
: In answer to the second question, if a person was travellnig down to a black-hole, then time would slow down : for the person, not for Earth, the reason for this is simple, if time slowed down on Earth every time matter entered a black-hole : The Earth`s crust would still be in the cooling phase. Anyway Black holes usually occur at the centre of galaxies, the proof of this is clearly visible:
: A) The centre of a galaxy is usually always clear of stars, and:
: B) The way the galaxy swirls, like water going down a plug hole.
: The facination about black holes is: Would the matter swirl clock-wise or anti-clockwise?
: The very centre of a black-hole where the matter exists is so dense that it doesn`t actually exist. : This may seem a perculiar thing to say, but it is very true.
: Like we when we die, our 'souls' remain, according to bible transcriptions. : Likewise, with stars, when they die, there 'souls' remain, in the form of extreme gravity.
: In my opinion Black-Holes would not be much use for time-space travel, because as soon as you enter one, : every atom in your body will be literally shredded.
: They, may however, in 1000 or so years, make useful cosmic-garbage eaters.
: It would be useful to find out how the black-hole turns matter into radiation. : As that would prove to be an infinite power source.
: One thing to remember, All black-holes have the same mass:0 and there gravitational field is the same strength.
: So G=M2/GM
: Feel free to E-mail me. :
That was a very interesting post and you are obviously smart.
There is only one thing I have to comment about. If time would slow down on earth each time something entered the black hole, earth would still be in it's current state beacause we wouldn't notice. If time slowed down then you wouldn't go like this: "Hey, wow, everything is moving so slowly!". Everything is moving more slowly and you too, and basically time doesn't exist at any point.
