What happens when a black-hole gets sucked into a black-hole?

They merge together, giving off gravity waves that travel across the universe stretching and contracting the fabric of space-time. Astronomers have actually managed to capture those waves and can replay them as sound. Which for some strange reason, sound like a water drop leaking from a tap and dripping into a tub of water

Gamma ray burst!

If there are all those black holes out there, just imagine the gravitational lensing effects. It would be like a hall of mirrors.

Yes Einstein and Black Holes, and what Hawking think about the center of the Universe...?

In the Center is Big Bang -1 Entropy?

OK NASA look et the centre...LOL

The thing about cosmology as explained in text books and by teachers, is that there is no "center of the universe". You can thought extrapolate one but then you would be going against accepted notions.

I will say this, mother nature does not pick the hardest way to do something! If it works once, why do it a different way?

So, an
on having a notion about what the center of the universe, if there is one, it would be even more of a cluster (pun included, free of charge)!!

The "what happened before the Big Bang" question! You end up in philosophical territory rather quickly. There are serious people out there thinking about the very notion you stated. It is a topic worthy of consideration.

BTW, did you see this thread? ATS, 2010, Breaking Alternative News, Astronomers Find First Evidence Of Other Universes.

Somebody posted to it the other day and was a nice trip down memory lane (about the time I started lurking here!). You might find some recognizable ideas.

That's the only it makes sence to me. ill check out the thread, thanks

When there is a Big Bang, then there is a Center...OK i think there was no Big Bang, Einstein say we could live witheout...Hmm. The Universe is a Big Thing with no beginning and no end...LOL

There was no "there" there!

The whole thing blew up from smaller than an atom to the size of a basketball. Nothing was differentiated at that point. I guess you could claim there is a "center" but it would not be any different than anywhere else. Then, according the theory of rapid expansion, that basketball of pure energy expanded into a solar system size glob. Still too hot to have particles. There were no "physics as we know it" and they are still arguing about gravity.

That glob expanded as space expanded. We will not be able to see it because it is hidden behind a dense cloud of what is probably gas trying to form. Somewhere along the line, they think cosmic rays poked through that veil. Then things started to cool down enough for matter to form. Things we would recognize today showed up. How/what gravity came to be is still in question.

Expansion slowed down to a pace where we could imagine "running the film backwards" to get to a Big Bang. There are things we may never know.

If I were to have a couple beers and really think about it, the center of the universe would a very lonely place because everything is moving away from you! You would have to travel faster than light to reach it let alone get out in front and ask where it is going in such a hurry! Or if you had offended it in some way.

Do you think it is moving around a point ,or Einstein say its relative i read in this, the Universe has no end and moving around in fractal Design (Sorry for my bad english, im German)

Na, if Hawking is alive i have one question, what is in the Center of the Universe?

Cool and thanks for keeping the lazy informed, TEOT. Funny how men-folk see the word "hole" and jump to fill it with whatever's metaphorically handy.

As far as the point which Big Banged into all we see, could it be everything is "entangled" with everything else? It would explain a few things, like "spooky action at a distance."

The more one learns about physics, the more magical it all is... just because we identify and name something, doesn't mean it isn't cool as heck and plain weird!

There's your dark matter, right there.

I'm replying to myself here.
What if they have equal and opposite suck?
Is this how Big-Bangs happen?

In a more general chit chat, speculative thread, here is what I speculated...

Each galaxy has a SMBH at its center; it is like the regulator of the galaxy. Each particle is entangled with it in some way and in some time (recent, distant past, at the galaxy's birth, etc). Because they did this at various times it looks totally random, especially to us naked monkey men! Each galaxy would have its own "Schumann resonance" or "vibe" (if you want to be all groovy about it) encasing it. No dark matter needed because the galaxy is a whole entity, like its own atom which moves as one.

...that is where I take a turn into left field a bit further and say that if we can somehow mask or shield ourselves off, we would probably start to float! (i.e., that is how to make "anti-gravity", or at least one form that would look like antigravity).

But of course, that is just crazy talk!

And yeah, I like how puffy our heads get with self-congratulatory pride only to be knocked off our pedestal when mother nature provides us something new and novel!

Let's give each black hole a name and start laying bets.
My money is on Jethro.
Yeah, I just named a newly discovered black hole.

Check it out! A real "ho[le] down" at the barn we call the center of the Milky Way...

Astronomers have discovered evidence for thousands of black holes located near the center of our Milky Way galaxy using data from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory.

This black hole bounty consists of stellar-mass black holes, which typically weigh between five to 30 times the mass of the Sun. These newly identified black holes were found within three light years—a relatively short distance on cosmic scales—of the supermassive black hole at our Galaxy's center known as Sagittarius A* (Sgr A*).

Theoretical studies of the dynamics of stars in galaxies have indicated that a large population of stellar mass black holes—as many as 20,000—could drift inward over the eons and collect around Sgr A*. This recent analysis using Chandra data is the first observational evidence for such a black hole bounty.

A black hole by itself is invisible. However, a black hole—or neutron star—locked in close orbit with a star will pull gas from its companion (astronomers call these systems "X-ray binaries"). This material falls into a disk and heats up to millions of degrees and produces X-rays before disappearing into the black hole. Some of these X-ray binaries appear as point-like sources in the Chandra image., May 9, 2018 - Sagittarius A* swarm: Black hole bounty captured in the Milky Way center.

After filtering out bounded neutron stars they were left with at least a dozen X-ray sources that can only be something massive enough to be a black hole. And those are the ones we can detect with current instruments (and a little deduction as to what it going on). The ones we cannot directly see or detect may be in the 1,000s. They are all circling the main one at the center.

I bet you that Rosanne there can take out Jethro any day of the week!! Either way, the square dance at the center of the galaxy seems to be a blackhole tie affair only as any unwanted guests get tossed out of the known universe!!

Gee, now only if we had a photo of that super massive black hole, Sgr A*??

How does gas escape when light can't?

And how did they detect 2 events 100,000 years apart? To answer this 2nd question, theyd have to admit everything we see in space is the same image at different points in time, lap after lap after lap. Like looking down a coil.

No endless galaxies, no distant Earth-like planes, just loops of the past as we spiral through space.

To answer the first they must admit they've been lying to us.

The gas has not passed the region known as the "event horizon" but is being flung around at near light speed. The x-rays and cosmic rays are what is left before matter crosses the event horizon. And yes, when light passes that border it cannot escape either.

When the black hole had a "burp" the x-rays and cosmic rays (and light) spread out into the universe. It traveled a distance from the black hole when another "burp" happened. That is what the color image from Hubble and the x-ray image from Chandra are showing: one region of space with cooling, slowing down EM with another behind it still relatively packed in closer to the black hole and glowing hotter. A little math and the timing works out to about 100,000 years between events.
