: : well tou see it isnt realy a formula or anyhting liike that but a blackhole generating device it realy just consists of a disc with magnets on the outside and then another magnet independent of the disk i will let you figuer out the rest hehe : : steve


I am sure that you know that making Black holes with Magnets is impossible. This is more for Sen Yan and any other person who thinks that magnets are some sort of magical device to create interstellar drives. Furrfu.

There is only way known way of making Black Holes. Take a large star, about 5 times the size of our sun or bigger. Wait for all the Hydrogen in it's core to burn into Helium. Wait for that that to burn into heavier elements until Iron is formed. Hydrodynamic equilibrium of the core is then upset so the star shrinks, the core heats suddenly causing a huge production of neutrinos that then shreds the outer atmosphere of the star which we see as a Supernovae. The pressure on the core causes it collapse in the meantime. Gravity takes over and the core collapses to a Black Hole.

so, we can make Black holes once we figure out how to make Supernovae occur at a whim. Simple really though the trick is getting out of the way of the explosion when it occurs.
