Could anyone imagine the time displacement effect being next to a black hole? The amount of time that would pass in a day would be immense. A estimated 7-8 years per hour and in 24 hours = 168 years give or take. If anyone would want to do some real time travel, sit on the edge of an black hole and centuries will go by in a few weeks time.
Does anyone know if it’s possible to orbit a black hole close enough to experience any significant time dilation affects without being torn to bits?

Yes. The larger a black hole is, the weaker are the tidal forces. You should be able to safely reach the event horizon of our black hole for example, assuming radiation and the accretion disk are not a problem.

so time travel to the future is possible for the observer who sits close enough to a black hoke that minutes to them is actually years for those in normal space on earth . If that person was then able to leave the time dilation near the black hole and return they'd be in the future !
it's time travel but just not instantenous !
and would you really want to assuming youd survive !
everyone you knew would be gone

What would my orbit speed have to be in order not to fall in, assuming the calculations of the black hole being 93 million miles in diameter is correct?
Also what about the affects of centrifugal force?
