Ok, phew. So we are done explaining any properties of black holes forever. If we ever talk about black holes in future videos we'll always link to this video.

Assuming this is all true the singularity in a black hole what does that sound like the ball of energy or the cause of the Big Bang because 1 there was nothingness before the Big Bang except the presumed ball of energy what if our universe was a black hole that exploded releasing that infinite amount of condensed matter obviously there are some holes in this theory but hey I think it’s kinda cool idk

Why we can't stop War in the middle east such as Israel and Palestine. But We can understand the theory of black hole? I know it's difficult to change this world. Not only money and Thrones but Geopolitics. I really like Kurzgesagt because it brings us new ideas and knowledge. Wish we can do more......

And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: (Heb 9:27) For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9) The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:9) I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. (Luke 13:5)

Honestly the way I want to go, I want to be made a scientist during death. By being launched into a black hole and reporting what it’s like back to a ship nearby. Or, is their gravitational force so strong that even radio waves n junk can’t escape? Also Kurzgesagt thank you so much for covering more on the topic of black holes! They are extremely interesting and I love the topic.

Can someone explain me, why does the halking radiation gain speed during the time? While the surface of the event horizon is shrinking, and therefore the amount of "halking interactions" on the surface, during time, should decrease as well. (By the assumption that the halking radiation is konstant during space time
