The **** is wrong with you? WE NEED TO WARN THE CLOUD!

I believe we'd need a Tardis for that, but the doctor is busy with stuff and things...
User avatar #3 to #2 - dreadscythe ONLINE (05/16/2013) [-]
it was said there would come a time where we would need the doctor and he would not be here, so we must be ready
User avatar #4 to #3 - PgFalcon (05/16/2013) [-]
We all need the doctor, but mostly for selfish reasons.

(if this is true) that cloud would have probably been ripped apart for ages now, considering the galactic center is thousands of light years from us... All we can do now is mourn our loss
User avatar #65 - cosmicoverdose (05/16/2013) [-]
well theoretically it has already been ripped apart. Probably millions of years ago, as it takes time for light to travel...

Not quite millions, but closer to approximately 27 thousand, give or take one thousand.

Not millions dip **** , the milky way is only 100,000 ly in diameter, so probably 50,000 years ago

just like if the sun blew up we wouldnt know right away

At most 28,000 years ago.

Most likely not millions of years... If it's in our galaxy it won't be millions of years. I think... don't listen to me I am only a Junior in high school.

You are correct, by NASA's calculations the Milky Way is ~150k light years across.

Basically everything we experience is on the past. Stimuli coming from outside of our bodies gets "noticed" by our brains 80 millisecods later.

Furries to the rescue!
I have two friends who are into it, one takes it as far as "Popping" where something swells up so much it explodes.
We're furry we dont use physics.
Anywho, it's just one of those things where you either like it or dont
It's not something you just suddenly get into

What exactly do you mean.

Has the black hole ripped the gas cloud apart some twentyish thousand years ago, and we get to see it next year, or will the black hole rip the gas cloud apart next year and we get to see it in some twentyish thousand years?

I don't believe any space science facts on fj at all..

One said that mercury would block out the ******* sun in june of last year... and people ******* bought it

another one said there would be a supernova far off in the galaxy and it would look like there are two suns..

along with many other ******** stuff..

I better see some ******* nasa proof before i believe anything i see here.

I'm not gonna stop you from researching it yourself
User avatar #70 to #60 - firstresponder (05/16/2013) [-]
well to be fair, Venus transited in front of the sun in June last year, its just too far away from us to block out the entire thing. It was only a little spec, but it was pretty cool to see through a high powered telescope.

The whole supernova thing was true, though a little exaggerated. The star, Betelguese, is due to go supernova at any point, though that could mean this year or 1000 years from now.

It wont be like a second sun, but it will be bright enough to see during the day and will outshine the full moon.

It's cool because this has technically already happened and it's like seeing into the past.
User avatar #132 to #127 - certifiedidiot (05/17/2013) [-]
And to think you could do the same thing with earth, enough distance and you could watch it all happen again.
#151 to #132 - anon (05/17/2013) [-]
only if you move faster than the speed of light. you'd have to get past the light that already left the Earth however many years ago
User avatar #133 to #132 - djequalizee (05/17/2013) [-]
If we ever are able to utilize warp we will be able to watch ourselves in the past from different distances and see how humans came to be.

And the conquests of Alexander the Great, the construction of the pyramids, the great wall of china, granted it wouldn't be like being there, but just a glimpse into it would be very interesting.

Did you know that when a black hole consumes too much space dust at a time, it will spit it out as shown on the picture

#24 to #14 - tomthehippie (05/16/2013) [-]
Actually, no it isn't. As matter is sucked into a black hole, it is spun, faster and faster as it gets closer, and some of that mater (now extremely hot and irradiated) is ejected out in two streams from either pole of the black hole.
User avatar #147 to #24 - fallenoffacliff (05/17/2013) [-]
So this is basically just intensified Hawkins radiation? It is not in fact released from the horizon?
#235 to #147 - tomthehippie (05/17/2013) [-]
From right before the event horizon I believe. And no, its not Hawkins radiation, just highly irradiated and energized matter that the black hole vomits out as it sucks down everything else.
User avatar #146 to #24 - vycanismajoris (05/17/2013) [-]
Does that mean that we found something that travels faster than the speed of light in nature? Because black holes attract light. If that stuff can escape a black hole, does it go faster than the speed of light?

I'm assuming it is emitted before the stuff reaches the horizon (the point of no return for light)

Cool answer. For a moment I thought this was the most important discovery of man kind.

Sounds oddly familiar to a Gamma RAy Burst. Which happens when a star implodes on itself and the superheated core remains spinning fast as **** . Eventually it turns into a pulsar, that strobes beams of light from its south and north pole, but the initial release of energy is a Burst.

I think there are other ways too. Something about to neutrons or proton stars dancing, then colliding, creating a Burst, but I'm not a 100% on that..

You need to login to view this link

Stellar jets are huge outbursts of plasma from a young star, planetary nebula or black hole that can be trillions of kilometres long and expand at speeds anywhere from hundreds of kilometres a second to something approaching the speed of light.

Jets like these are the result of a ring of dust and gas (called an accretion disc) being pulled into a dense object like a protostar or black hole and subsequently being fired out from its two poles in opposite directions.

It's essentially a Quasar.
#45 to #42 - tomthehippie (05/16/2013) [-]
Quasars are any one of numerous objects that produce radio waves. Some of them are pulsars, others are black holes.

In this case, this "quasar" is a black hole.
#149 to #45 - anon (05/17/2013) [-]
actually, only a small amount of quasars are strong radio sources.

quasars are massive objects that only exist farther away in the universe (essentially meaning they are old objects, since looking far away means backward in time). at the center of most quasars are black holes, and they contain the amount of mass similar to our own galaxy. quasars are likely similar to young galaxies at high redshift.

quasars can't be pulsars though. pulsars are just rotating neutron stars
User avatar #73 to #14 - DeathKnight (05/16/2013) [-]
not ******** . what gets spit out is pure energy.
User avatar #89 to #10 - Dairycow (05/17/2013) [-]
yeah i think thats called a quasar
User avatar #140 to #89 - djequalizee (05/17/2013) [-]
Yessir, on super-massive black holes they are called quasars. And on smaller black holes they are referred to as microquasars
User avatar #83 to #10 - lizardnigger (05/17/2013) [-]
