Massive black hole that ‘should not even exist’ has been discovered

STRATEGIC ClipBoard:  Scary. How could we miss it? Or think one couldn’t exist – just because we live here? Hope it doesn’t eat up our sun or misalign the planets causing collusions.

Yeah, all that collusion talk on the media all over the world upset the Galaxy. You want collusion? I’ll show you collusion.

No. The Galaxy isn’t a woman. Neither are ships or cars or countries. Strange how people call their land MOTHER, yet women across lines and locations still don’t have the rights of status that men enjoy.

I wonder if it’s the same on other planets? Why do we always think that any extraterrestrial life we happen upon is going to be superior to us. What if they’re inferior to us, yet stronger and more brutal? Do you really want to find them? Do you really want them as your neighbor? What if they’re searching for human food and they already found us? What if they want our planet for themselves?

You can be smart and still inferior to us.

Ask the Jews if they’re harboring any alien-slanted humans among them?

I’ve seen a few. Many are on public assistance, living in public housing, but they’re geniuses.

How does that happen?

Lots of questions without answers.

Humans are hung up on ‘superior’ aren’t they? It’s not just the Japanese, Chinese, Germans, Russians, Africans, Indians, Indigenous people, it’s everyone, every group. Even when an individual or group submits to another, they still think they’re superior. It’s not a wish, it’s a knowing that they’re superior.

Ah, I almost forgot the British. They wanted me to forget them though. It’s rude if you claim superiority, but they all still think they are.

Now, what are we going to do about that black hole? Most people would say nothing. We’ll observe it.

The correct answer is, “We’re going to look for another one that may be closer to Earth.

No. It’s not MOTHEREarth. You can call it mother when mothers get the same status rights as fathers.

It’s a trick to pacify women so they won’t ask for much. Look, we name the most important things in our lives after women. That’s quite a status.

Yeah, but status doesn’t pay the bills. I got a promotion without a pay raise, doing the same job I do now.

IN NAME ONLY are you superior.

This inferior woman here wants back pay for Two Decades.

Did you know thaT MOST WOMEN AROUND THE GLOBE ARE STILL SLAVES?

‘I don’t believe in God, a religious-based God, but I believe in a superior being’. That’s been floating around for a long time. In fact, my journey into the unknown began with that internal declaration. It evolved from there and is still evolving.

I love evolution. I still can’t wrap my head around ‘something from nothing’. Or, ‘there is no beginning and there is no end’.

If there’s no ending and no beginning, then everything is always transitional.

I wonder with transitional people, how far that will go? Once it starts, it accelerates unless a more forceful opposing state blocks the process.

The process doesn’t just effect gender; it effects the entire organism.

I wonder what the acceleration will look like?

Interesting.

Massive black hole that ‘should not even exist’ has been discovered (ABC News)

Massive black hole that ‘should not even exist’ has been discovered originally appeared on abcnews.go.com

A black hole with a mass 70 times greater than the Sun was discovered, leaving scientists stunned.

“Black holes of such mass should not even exist in our Galaxy, according to most of the current models of stellar evolution,” Professor Jifeng Liu, who led the team at the Chinese Academy of Sciences that made the discovery, said in a statement.

Scientists previously believed that the mass of an individual stellar black hole could not be more than 20 times that of the Sun. These stellar black holes are different than so-called supermassive black holes, which are found at the center of galaxies and can be billions of times the mass of our Sun…

Stephen Hawking Was Right: Black Holes Can Evaporate, Weird New Study Shows

Stephen Hawking Was Right: Black Holes Can Evaporate, Weird New Study Shows

By Meredith Fore, Live Science Contributor | June 10, 2019

Stephen Hawking made one of his most famous predictions: that black holes eventually evaporate entirely.

According to Hawking’s theory, black holes are not perfectly “black” but instead actually emit particles. This radiation, Hawking believed, could eventually siphon enough energy and mass away from black holes to make them disappear. The theory is widely assumed to be true but was once thought nearly impossible to prove.

For the first time, however, physicists have shown this elusive Hawking radiation — at least in a lab. Though Hawking radiation is too faint to be detected in space by our current instruments, physicists have now seen this radiation in a black hole analog created using sound waves and some of the coldest, strangest matter in the universe. Black holes exert such an incredibly powerful gravitational force that even a photon, which travels at the speed of light, could not escape. While the vacuum of space is generally thought of as empty, the uncertainty of quantum mechanics dictates that a vacuum is instead teeming with virtual particles that flit in and out of existence in matter-antimatter pairs. (Antimatter particles have the same mass as their matter counterparts, but opposite electrical charge.)

Normally, after a pair of virtual particles appears, they immediately annihilate each other. Next to a black hole, however, the extreme forces of gravity instead pull the particles apart, with one particle absorbed by the black hole as the other shoots off into space. The absorbed particle has negative energy, which reduces the black hole’s energy and mass. Swallow enough of these virtual particles, and the black hole eventually evaporates. The escaping particle becomes known as Hawking radiation.

This radiation is weak enough that it’s impossible right now for us to observe it in space, but physicists have thought up very creative ways to measure it in a lab.

Physicist Jeff Steinhauer and his colleagues at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa used an extremely cold gas called a Bose-Einstein condensate to model the event horizon of a black hole, the invisible boundary beyond which nothing can escape. In a flowing stream of this gas, they placed a cliff, creating a “waterfall” of gas; when the gas flowed over the waterfall, it turned enough potential energy into kinetic energy to flow faster than the speed of sound.

Instead of matter and antimatter particles, the researchers used pairs of phonons, or quantum sound waves, in the gas flow. The phonon on the slow side could travel against the flow of the gas, away from the waterfall, while the phonon on the fast side could not, trapped by the “black hole” of supersonic gas.

“It’s like if you were trying to swim against a current that was going faster than you could swim,” Steinhauer told Live Science. “You’d feel like you were going forward, but you were really going back. And that’s analogous to a photon in a black hole trying to get out of the black hole but being pulled by gravity the wrong way.”

Hawking predicted that the radiation of emitted particles would be in a continuous spectrum of wavelengths and energies. He also said that it could be described by a single temperature that was dependent only on the mass of the black hole. The recent experiment confirmed both of these predictions in the sonic black hole.

“These experiments are a tour de force,” Renaud Parentani, a theoretical physicist at Laboratoire de Physique Théorique of Paris-Sud University, told Live Science. Parentani also studies analog black holes but from a theoretical angle; he was not involved in the new study. “It’s a very precise experiment. From the experimental side, Jeff [Steinhauer] is really, at the moment, the world-leading expert of using cold atoms to probe black hole physics.”

Parentani, however, emphasized that this study is “one step along a long process.” In particular, this study did not show the phonon pairs being correlated on the quantum level, which is another important aspect of Hawking’s predictions.

“The story will continue,” said Parentani. “It is not at all the end.”
