: : Okay I understand how black holes are made but does anyone have an idea of what it's like on the inside.......Something to think about huh?

: : Black holes aren't really "holes" and don't really have an "inside." More accurately, they are bodies of such great density and gravity and so little energy that they gravitationally pull in even photons (visible light), thereby theoretically appearing as a light "void" in space (although the light from distant stars may bend around it, giving the impression that no such void exists). The edge of the void is real, however, and is called the event horizon (a sphere of "no return" if yu will), beyond which one cannot see or detect anything at all, because all matter and energy is attracted inward toward the singularity beyond that sphere. Inside the evnt horizon? Pretty normal, except the gravitational gradient at some point would rip you to shreds and paste you against the outer surface of the singularity. Not fun.

You are taking the easy way out of the question; don't you believe in worm holes or gaps in time or demension. Sure like you said, you would be ripped into shreds and paste but if you could somehow withstand that large gravitational force and enter into the core of the black hole maybe, just maybe you would see yourself entering the black hole or something like that. Don't forget that time in some cases travels backwards on the event/time horizon.......
