This is an illistration of a Dice hurling toward the event horizon of a black hole and the effects..
These are the moments before impact
the dice is destroyed and fragmented from a 1st person perspective
but from a distance observer the dice appears to hover forever above the event horizon.
It shows how it changes color due to red shift from the distant observer and follows a spiraling path. But then seems t slow down and hang there.
From a POV of a person perched on one of the Corners of the Dice...you can see the dice begin to warp a few miles above the event horzon A photon sphere appears around the event horizon from tapped light orbiting the center.
The pieces begin to elongate and fracture. Star light from this view point is blue due to blue shifted light accelerating toward you and the black hole.
Black holes are much like the door to the begining of the universe.
PenguinousThis isn't neccesaraily true. It depends on the size of the black hole if you'll get "spaghettified" or not. Larger Black holes have a larger circle of gravity around them so the gravity would get better distributed upon you.
All black holes (regardless of outer size) is still going to be small and the same size deep inside.
The univers is so big I can keep myself entertained for the duration of my life. Let you know if I get bored and wanna check out the end of everything -aka- big ass wall.
A wall, huh? :)
46 and 2, are just ahead of me

Oh god, we had the same exact discussion in Physics class today. You know, i'm lucky i've made my mind up that the universe is infinite and that you can't visualize everything.
It hurt my brain to try to visualize space, especially if you look at it as space expanding like a tear drop and what would go outside it, assuming the universe is not round/square.
