    Is there a possibility that we're getting sucked into a giant-ass wormhole right now, but we just don't nocite it, cause it's too fast?

    Is it possible that once something were to pass event horizon that the extreme speed of the spin of a black hole would fling you back out into space faster than the speed of light or you would orbit the singularity once inside of a black hole?

    a balck hole is not a is a sphere that is packed very tight with matter so much so the gravity is so strong light cannot even escape, if you tried to "enter" one your body will be stripped down by the forces of gravity to atoms and it will land on the surface of the sphere adding to its mass

    so just wondering if we do enter into a black hole, and get "spaghettification" stretch apart and apparently died. then how can we enter it and travel across through space and come out alive. weren't we just pulled apart and crush in the black hole? and if we do get push out a "white hole", wouldn't we spit out of is a particulars? i know everything here is all academic and theory but just want to know what you think about this theory?....and what else theories do you have about this.... hope you answer back (^^)

    • The Noisy Spectator

      +Tom Szabo - ... I do not think so, there has only been one big bang, instead of one for every black hole that will exist for the entire history of the universe.
      It might be possible that each black hole spawns a mini-universe branching off from our own, and matter never re-enters our Universe, but that is just as theoretical, without good evidence for or against it.

      The Noisy Spectator White holes are essentially the Big Bang so we have in fact discovered one of them.

    • The Noisy Spectator
      The Noisy Spectator 5 days ago

      +bakamon523 I don't think it matters. If "white holes" were a real phenomenon, they should be common enough that we would have discovered them by now.

      +It's High Noon correct. .but how can you tell which is which..if both blackhole and wormhole pull everything in and pull everything apart once something enter, how to things exit out while still intact? And if there are different how can you tell which is a blackhole and which is a wormhole...

    Wait, so the Dean Koontz book, ‘By The Light of The Moon’, had a concept called “folding.” This was *seemingly* teleportation, but could this have been touching upon the theoretical idea of folding two differing coordinates to a location, noticeably closer.
