    The largest things in the universe are black holes. In contrast to things like planets or stars they have no physical size limit, and can literally grow endlessly. Although in reality specific things need to happen to create different kinds of black holes, from really tiny ones to the largest single things in the universe. So how do black holes grow and how large is the largest of them all?

Could you do a video about what the inside of a Black hole would look like? A dense rock or super dense material? Maybe only raw matter? Anti matter? To me its just compressed matter, following normal physics. Put this matter together with other matter - it just gets bigger. Nothing special but definitely no gate to other dimensions. Maybe just a solid structure of some form not worth being explored in the end. Cause its underwhelmingly boring.

@Benjamin Murray Well that is exactly why it is impossible to accurately rank them in size. We can calculate the exact size of it, but not comprehend it. And you would need to comprehend their size first in order to compare them. It's like imagining earth and comparing it with a basketball in size. Difficult to compare. Maybe even impossible.

The upper limit of the size of a blackhole has been something I've been thinking about lately. Like is it possible there could/one day be blackholes out there as big as an entire galaxy, an entire universe? Could the universe itself be orbiting/inside a blackhole the size of multiple universes?

First of all, the videos on the different types of stars and objects in our universe are some of the best ever created (in my humble opinion), so thank you for making these for humanity to learn and appreciate what we’ve actually been able to prove as a species and to all the great thinkers out there that have contributed to discovery. I did have a specific question for you or anyone involved in the making of this video. I’m curious as to what measurement was used when talking about being able to fit our solar system inside of these mind boggling, sized black holes. The estimates for the outer edges of the Oort Cloud range from 10,000 to 100,000 AU from the Sun. According to NASA, all 5 of the satellites that will eventually get there will have their power sources die centuries before even reaching the inner edge, roughly estimated to be between 2,000 to 5,000 AU from the Sun. Or was a different measurement of distance used?

Is a black hole—the matter itself— infinitely small? When they say a black hole has a certain size, I think they might be referring to the event horizon.

@Aashish Bharadwaj But are we sure that the whole event horizon is not filled with singularities? Or rather, one singularity that has filled the whole event horizon by being in every spot within it (at the same time, because time does not pass within the event horizon, as there is no proper time existing within it)?

They are indeed. It's 10000% impossible to know how big the singularity inside each black hole actually is. It's easier to eat your own head than having something escaping a black hole. So yeah, they are comparing them using the event horizon. (Yes technically with Hawkin's effect, some particules are able to leave the black hole but it will take at least 10^150 years before it becomes visible so not very important loss)

@Sploof Mcsterra the blackholes Event Horizon gets bigger cus it's gravitational pull increases with every atom added to it.. every mass is compressed in the blackhole to an unimaginable infinitely small size however gravity still follows its fundamental concept that more mass=more gravity hence the event horizon gets bigger everytime a blackhole consumes something cus the region where light gets absorbed is further away from the singularity

I mean it depends on the units used. When he says solar mass then he obviously means mass, and when he compares it to the solar system then it's clearly the diameter (so neither volume nor "area", black holes have no area). You can see it in the video.

Thanks for the round clarification because I don't know of any object that's truly round. Look at a bubble float down as it falls it flexes and wobbles. Look at clips of astronauts experimenting with water in LEO and how the water wobbles. I theorize that the Earth as it moves around the Sun also flexes like that just on a scale undetectable unless the tectonic plates buckle.

The fact that it's so hard to truly grasp the size of the Sun compared to the size of the Earth and then you show black holes that have the same size difference, but on a different scale is literally insane to me. We spend a few hours to circle the Earth, but even a small portion of the "pole" of a super massive black hole is enough to to fit Jupiter several times not to mention the Sun. Afaik the Sun's gravity is 250 G, may br Jupiter's idk, but a black hole like that should have so many Gs that it's impossible to do anything other than melt from friction

It still blows my mind how talking about the universe numbers like 17 trillion light years is used. When I was young, I’d try to count just to try to gain an appreciation for how large somethings were. And Wgen greyhound used to offer a 3 month bus pass traveled all around to get a better idea how huge the USA was. How many cultures, people, groups, towns, plains, farms etc were. Once in northern GA, I saw a sign in Spanish, followed the road down and found a huge community where I heard next to no English. Yeah the USA doesn’t have a national language but American English is a thing. But I adore the number of dialects. The difficulty for some in northern Louisiana would have a hard time communicating with a guy with a thick Boston or Pittsburgh accent both using their slangs, heavy accents without using effort to understand the other. People do make the effort to understand each other obviously, but there are some who can’t.

With our technology, we just barely started to understand the universe. There's no doubt there are lots of things we can't know about black holes for decades or maybe for centuries. Our observations are limited from the perspective of the world we live and stuck in. If our technology advances enough to send probes to these black holes most likely we'll learn that much of our knowledge has been wrong for a long time. Still, trying to understand with minimum information and observation is much better than ignorance.

Good points. So far, all we really know for sure is that black holes *exist.* Until just now, they have pretty much only been theoretical and almost on the level of science-fiction. But now we finally have images and direct evidence that black holes are real. As far as I know, this is the first time that we have hard evidence that black holes exist. Now imagine next if somehow astronomers can get proof of wormholes! THAT would really be crazy!

I know that you guys used Special and General Relativity to make this video. The Schwarzchild radius which you calculated is definitely not exact, but it's ok.

While we don't actually know what "dark matter" is per se, we do know that it isn't microscopic black holes. The thing about "dark matter" is that we infer it's existence based on the rate at which many galaxies rotate. Most rotate far too quickly/evenly based strictly on the visible matter we observe. We call it "dark" because we don't know what it is (only that it adds significant gravitational influence) and it seems to not interact with visible matter. It doesn't seem to even interact with itself much outside of tenuously gathering loosely near massive galaxies. If this were caused by microscopic black holes, they would interact with each other through gravity and cause millions/billions of mergers. Those would become a much greater, single object which would interact with everything around it in very specific ways.

Don't use the term "we" when you're say this stuff. If you didn't research it, replace it with "I believe". PBH dark matter halos have recently been a breakthrough in science especially when studying mergers. We may not know what it is, but PBHs are a very plausible explanation. Lots of studies have put the idea of non baryonic matter in the place of the ellipsoidal/spherical halo when studying mergers and it has led to a few key details in our understanding of gravitational radiation. I would provide a source but youtube doesn't like the link.

Bearing in mind "gravity’s relative weakness simply by using an ordinary bar magnet to pick up paper clips from a desk. Battling the gravitational pull of all of Earth, the tiny magnet wins! In fact, gravity is a staggering 10 40 times weaker than electromagnetism". I have often wondered if you had 2 black holes made purely of electrons (so both as negatively charged as possible), would it ever be possible for them to merge or would the repulsive forces be far stronger than the gravitational forces? As a follow on to this question, if you had a highly charged super-massive black hole and your space ship crossed the event horizon could you leave the black hole simply by generating a strong enough repulsive force (the same magnetic charge as the black hole) because after all magnetism is so much stronger than gravity?

Vor 4 Monate
Philtography - Cotswold Wedding Photographer
Philtography - Cotswold Wedding Photographer

@Matthew Griffin all good points, in my hypothetical black hole I don't think you need to 'know' the way out, the magnetic field should simply repel you away from center of charge. I had thought about the 1/r and 1/r² relationships and thought that might be the answer to this but I've just never heard people talk about charge in a black hole very much so I don't know.

Vor 4 Monate
Matthew Griffin
Matthew Griffin

@Philtography - Cotswold Wedding Photographer Well besides that, there is the issue of not knowing which way is out, as inside space-time is too distorted to actually get away from the center. There is also the problem of gravity having a longer range than electromagnetism in terms of its field. Funny enough gravity is the dominant force in astronomical scales and the weakest at atomic. Mostly because the nature of electromagnetic charges work to reduce each other, resulting in the field strength weakening faster than gravity would at that range.
