    7:35 Actually the phrase is "Traveling near the speed of light" not at speed of light. And the consequences of "at" are time frozen to zero, you will see nothing, entire universe length would become zero, you live through death of universe or we should leave it to god

    You fall on to a black hole. When you fall on to it, you become part of it. The same as if you fall on to the Earth. A black hole is not a hole.
    People use a spinning ball in a funnel to illustrate gravity, showing gravitational force as the hole in the middle. It is actually centripetal force that is keeping the ball from falling through the hole and the gravity from the solid mass at your feet, known as the Earth, pulling the ball towards the hole. They really ought to change the name to "Black Solid" because the word "hole" seems to be confusing people.

      This is the best black hole videos by far but, on the level of minutiae, it's pronounced "for all intents and purposes" (4:11). I mean you can say "intensive purposes", but it's just that the figure-of-speech is the entire phrase. You probably speak at scientific conferences and the establishment loves their minutiae even more than me so I want you to be prepared and not underestimated.

    There is something wrong in this video, spagetization occurs only for small black holes, if we encounter a big one like the one inside in our galaxy, we will never notice any change in our bodies.

    Did you see the part of the article you excerpted on "Dumbholes" where it said "...may prove Steven Hawking right"? This is why you need to have eagle eyes. The very first thing you should have been asking is "right about what?" The answer is ... Steve Hawking: "There are no black holes": (Do a broader search here ).
    Quantum theory tells you that black holes evaporate. You can't get to any event horizon, because by the time you get there, the black hole will have already evaporated ... which is precisely what Hawking is pointing out above. For acoustic black holes, it's known as acoustic Hawking radiation. There are other problems with the classical black hole model, as well. The "singularity" is where matter winks out of existence -- which would violate the very continuity equation that is used to *derive* the Einstein Field Equations that are used to form the black hole model -- thus falsifying both the theory and the model! So, for that reason it is not a valid solution to the field equations at all and not a model of anything. The Black Hole Information Paradox is also a clear-cut contradiction that invalidates the model.
    For this reason and others, one deals with alternative models, that are grounded in semi-classical quantum gravity, that do not share these problems, which still conform to the observed properties of the known "black holes", and which do *not* have black hole singularities.

    Ok so what would happen say if the solar system were to fall into the event horizon and just by chance it took up orbit in the space within the rim of the black hole and the space created by the singularity stretch of space/time and it's friction creates a stable barrier sheild the gravitational effects placing the system in a type of stasis

    Black holes store information inside them, they aren't an infinite void. If they were, quasars wouldn't happen and they'd just suck everything in existence inside them. Half of the matter is ejected while the other half is stored inside it, in a way whatever is sucked into a black hole isn't exactly lost forever. The other side might just be an alternate reality or dimension, or just a singularity.
