    Am I the only one that learned this in 6th grade? Literally everything he said I learned in 6th grade. Except since nobody has been in a black hole I don't believe the whole the black hole will kill you thing.

    Ugh! These pseudo scientists really make people happy. Like the piper leading the ignorant to their doom. Smiling as he spews his hypnosis over the unsuspecting.

    I have a hard time believing anything can have infinite mass or gravitational pull, if that was the case, what's stopping the universe of collapsing into it? Why is this infinite pull within a confined space?

    This guy is so full of shit. He's talking in detail about something nobody has ever seen any evidence of, think about that.

  • dwc growz
    dwc growz 3 days ago

    The fact is that black holes don't exist, there's never been any proof or evidence that one is out there somewhere, this guy is totally full of shit. The real question kiddo's is why they want you to believe a black hole is real?

    I love how Brian Cox never tries to explain something that he has no understanding of. Hell just say "we don't know why..." And there's something so humble about that.

    It is all theory. The nearest black hole is our own. 50 thousand light years away. Even if you could travel it. By the time you got there the human race may not even be here to talk about it.

    I have lots of respect for Rogan and Brian Cox. He is definitely a genius in his profession. All of these facts are very accurate I'm sure, but these Mathematical facts totally exclude the spiritual side of the Universe. Talking about religions, spiritual beliefs. What about all of their theories in which they also see as fact? You heard Brian Cox tell Rogan "I don't know what Dark Energy is". So how can he lay claim to anything out there if he doesn't know what it is?
    I enjoy the input....and their mathematical claim to fact. I can respect the man's passion and his sincerity. But if you expect me to trust everything this gentleman is saying to be true fact of our planet, space and our very own human exhistance from his laptop computer, then you should always stay open minded about who created what and how we all came about.

  • Selarom Ogeid
    Selarom Ogeid 13 days ago

    Even plainer English:
    Particles of matter, in general, don’t like to occupy the same space. But if you put enough of them near each other, they attract each other through gravity so much, they have no choice but to occupy (virtually) the same spot. That’s a black hole.
    Why don’t they like being in the same spot? You would need to take a few graduate level quantum mechanic courses to understand.

    Some things do escape, radiation leaks out of it, so in theory everything lost into it, comes back out, just in a much different form

    • SarthorS
      SarthorS 15 days ago

      From my understanding, which is probably wrong, virtual particles are popping into and out of existence all the time. They appear in pairs and then almost instantly cancel each other out. When it happens at the event horizon, one of the particles can be just on the outside and escape. That is the radiation you are talking about. The other particle gets captured and falls into the black hole which cancels out a little of it's mass. So the radiation isn't actually coming out from the black hole itself, but it is caused by it.

  • Dan Shetler
    Dan Shetler 18 days ago

    Brian is not a scientist he is a theoretical physicist which means he can say anything he wants and not have to prove it. His only job is to discredit and belittle everyone that doesn't agree with him

    • David Cross
      David Cross 14 days ago

      Dan Shetler a theory needs evidence to be called a theory, like gravity. A hypothesis doesn’t need evidence. We also know that Black Holes exist as we can see their effect of gas and light, and we’ve seen a picture of one.

    • George Lux
      George Lux 20 days ago

      Your mistake was in thinking that there's no gravity in space. If you start from an incorrect assumption you will most likely arrive at flawed conclusions.

      @aazo5 To be honest, I don't see the point, never mind get it! lol! Good for you if you do. Yes, seriously crazy. So, what object do we use to focus with and on to see the future in the present, any Eye dears? :) What is the basic rule for this?

    • aazo5
      aazo5 17 days ago

      1 0 You’d obviously still need to use a pretty crazy telescope to see it lol, but you get the point.
      When you look up at the Sun, you’re really looking at what it looked like about 8 minutes prior. So just applying that same basic rule to everything else in the universe, we are literally looking billions of years into the past in real time, which is seriously crazy.

      He’s saying that it happened in 1054 but we saw it recently, due to the finite speed of light. When you look up into the night sky you are literally looking years in the past

    All this can never happen just by chance. Their has to be a higher personality, a higher power, an intelligent power to create something like us and the trillions and trillions of universe(s). That higher personality is Allah/God.

      Zach Fisher 20 days ago

      George Lux they don’t lie, they base what they’re saying on layers of theories and every ten years they get proven wrong. That’s why we have “Dark Matter” as an answer for universal mysteries. Dark matter is garbage science.

    They're still stars, still out there, but anyone who gets too close is doomed, and nothing new shines out of them any more. So... is this about astronomy or about the music industry?
