@BlqckMailed ohhhh my bad but yeah it's a portal a black hole has to have a end point to be able to bend light all that energy must go somewhere or it would go critical very quickly and just collapse on itself and fade into the fabric of space

I have no since of humoor
Remember this was millions of light years away. It took that long for the light to reach us, Which means the black hole is millions of light years old.

So we pretty much took a picture of a black hole 54 million years ago, and we are looking at what it was 54 million years ago. It makes me wonder if there are pictures of us somewhere far away, where there are pictures of our past/future..

Can you guys and gals please use your geniuses to map the sea floor? I get tired of hearing "We've only mapped 5% of our oceans". How about using those highly damaging trowelers and charge them with the mission of maping the oceans. 🤔🗺️🌏🌍📏📐

Gonorrhea Breath mapping the seafloor makes cetacians stressed sadly 😔 we have to keep looking upwards

Black holes are nothing any of you primordial Neanderthals can comprehend they are the a public form of interstellar transportation from galaxy to galaxy they are when advanced civilizations collapse a star destroy va galaxy to open a method of transportation to distant galaxy's they are wrips in space and time so that means they continue a reconstruction point and a end point a destination this is Known as the Kushman theory or The Michael Jackson theory

“Nothing moves faster than light”
We don’t know ANYTHING compared to the existence of this universe. For all we know, there is a speed that goes 10-100 times the speed of light. And we just can’t see it. The fact that our lovely earth is spinning at a casual 1,000 miles per hour or 460 meters per second and we don’t even feel it makes me think. What if our entire universe is flying at a speed unknown in our multiverse. There are many unknown things to discover
MassLLamaSnipeZ - 2 months ago
technically shadows are faster than the speed of light because if you shine a light on a wall and you make a shadow with your finger your finger is moveing a couple cm a second so if your shadow is big enough your shadow is going faster than the speed of light, so if the universe is darkness then maby your right we could going amazingly fast, for instance we could be going at the speed of light * 10 to the power of infinity
