Black Hole Halo
Question for the day...

If the gravitational forces of a black hole are so great, that not even light can escape, and the farther away from any celestial body the less it's gravitational pull, then wouldn't it be feasible that there is a point around the black hole that light is trapped. Moving away from the black hole at a rate equal to the pull from it's gravity? Kind of like a light orbit. May never know.

Where the f*ck did that come from?!

No darkness without the light...

That's why I'm Halo In Reverse. How very Zen.

Why, that's my new CyberGoth name.

Not really, but it was funny to me at the time.

(Hey, why don't we put on a bunch of shiny clothing with LED displays, and I'll introduce myself that way and you can introduce yourself as your job title?*)

I refer you back to one of the greatest bands of all time, Depeche Mode for the song "Halo" off Violator.
Love that song. It's very important to me.

Re: Why, that's my new CyberGoth name.

lol. I'll have to dig out the LEDs. ;)

I *LOVE* that album. It's by far my favorite. Now I have an overwelming Depeche Mode craving. I need to burn another MP3 DVD so I can put my 'current' music on. I only have my 'infreqently' listened to MP3 DVD at work, so 1,376 songs, and no Depeche Mode, since I still listen to them at home.

Halo in Reverse... ::Smacks head with board:: Being dense today.

But how's your *texture*?

Because, you know, some people may not find you appealing if the texture's off.

However, all that metal's got to make you crunchy. Also, high iron content is good for humans.

Oh, right. Almost forgot:

You're made out of meat. >)

I think you'll do just fine.

I have actually dwelled on this question daily!!! I would assume that the increase, or decrease, in gravitational pull is exponential. At a certain point, nothing can escape. This, I believe, is known as the event horizon. Here is an interesting website I have found on this theory:

http://archive.ncsa.uiuc.edu/Cyberia/NumRel/BlackHoleAnat.html

If something is outside of this point, then it can escape. But once crossed...well, you're fucked!

My addition to the worthless knowledge of the day!

Thank you for the link. I see, yes, I know the event horizon is the point of no return.

The validation I was seeking was actually mentioned in the article. "The event horizon is traced out by "critical" light rays that will never escape or fall in."</a>

i've always wondered why the universe exists at all, if black holes exist. because, if i understand it right, it sucks everything into it. if it sucks everything in, why aren't we in a black hole right now? or maybe we are, and this is some craptacular universe, and time and space are essentially 'looped', because of said black hole.

oooooohhhh.

I know some of my friends know a hell of a lot more on this subject than me, but perhaps the hole theory of the black hole sucking everything in, and once it sucks everything in, it sucks other black holes in and boom. Big bang.

I mean, think of the gravitational forces involved if two black holes started pulling on eachother. Maybe they never suck into eachother, more likely they rip eachother apart, spewing matter out, and thus making the big bang.

Simply because it does.
