People need to think and stop calling them black holes. They are not holes at all, as a hole is commonly thought of. They may be a hole in the picture or an empty space[hole]. I dont think i need to talk about this to you people but a collapsed star is not a hole.
I hate wrong terminoligy. You can not travel through a collapsed star,you can not visit a collapsed star and the things that go into the gravitational field of a collapsed star are crushed and never to be seen again,until the star gives up its gravity and releases everything in some future time. Time travel is wrong,curiosity is wrong,,,It is like jumping into a volcano on earth and wondering what will happen. Good luck
nothing can escape a blackhole once it reaches the event horizon, or "point of no return." This is because the gravity made by a blackhole is so enormous that not even something traveling at the speed of light can resist it's gravity. I am not sure, so don't quote me on this, but it is my understanding that light is infact composed of some type of partical.
X-rays are the product of matter being pulled into the black hole, and again im not sure about this, but i do not believe that the X-rays actually reach the event horizon.
well i read a post that had links here not more than few months back max, that says scientists have seen into dark matter patches and what they saw was confuseing due to fact that what was in these dark matter patches was mirrorcopys of near by galaxy's????
could it be a way into alternate dimensions?
My opinion is that dark matter patches are a tear in space time and show past and future galaxys of the exisiting galaxys that are near these dark matter tears??

I was wondering if black holes are visible and if so anyone have any pictures? If they arent visible then how do we know they exist? Thanks.
