: Actually they very well could be.
(A) If you're pointing out the gravity well, then yes, that sort of looks like a hole. Otherwise, a black hole is a globular hunk of matter that's floating through space. (B) I'm just using the currently accepted theory, of course. Nobody's actually been very close to a black hole before; at least, nobody who's records are surviving.
: Actually much smaller than that, if size even has any
: relevance at this point.
I know, I was just trying to get the point across. I wasn't quite sure if the person had heard of a quark or not.
: Probably Star Trek.
: Except, of course, that they are gravitational anomalies,
: and gravity only has EVERYTHING to do with time, as
: Einstein demonstated.
In the normal sense, I meant. As in, if you go into a black hole, you're not going to be instantly transported to a million years ago. the speed that time goes by might change, but that's not what he was talking about.
: I am.
Me too. =)
