Spinning Black Holes | The World In Uv - At Up-Tube.com

Spinning Black Holes The World in UV 4 months ago   10:14

A pulsing black hole in the centre of a distant galaxy sheds light on black hole and galaxy formation. How fast are black holes rotating and how does that rotation change over its life-span?

Huge thanks to Prof. Geraint Lewis and study author Dr. Dheeraj Pasham.

Could a black hole be a four dimensional object casting a three dimensional shadow.

What if Black Holes are actually Dark Matter Tornadoes ??

So if this thing is 290 million light years away, does that mean the black hole ate the star 290 million years ago?

If rotating mass is pulled all the way down to the singularity, shouldn't it angular momentum become infinite?
Andrey Lebedenko
Say a space traveler orbits black hole 1m away from it's event horizon. When he will look into the window, what will he see? Say the window looks away from the black hole.

The Isco seems to be a Roche limit. Am I right?

excellent videos man as always
please keep it going

So to study black holes we must look at anything but light?
sameer sayyed
Is it called pulsar

The scientists arent making anything up. They're just clueless as to the mechanism which cause a black holes existence. Black holes don't feed on anything first off. Secondly, they spin and do not suck. Unfortunately this means nothing is violently ripped apart and swallowed up. Spectroscopy is also completely misinterpreted by scientists. a Although very thorough, and well explained, this explanation is completely off. Through no fault of his own of course. The blame lies with his professors.

It's all bab shameless science.

If it was millions of light years away, how were we seeing it every 131 seconds then? It would be having to go faster than the speed of light
Is Earth gradually being pulled into the supermassive black hole of our milky way?
How can we measure the the mass of the Black Holes, since we don't know about the gravity of it, may be gravity will be infinity???
krishna CoC
If twp black holes of exact opposite spin merge, does the spin cancel each other and become stellar black hole?

While watching the video,in the beginning I said to my self physics is not so difficult after all...and then the math comes in...

In summary, ultraviolet light interacts differently with matter for a number of reasons:
1. Some pigments selectively absorb UV so they may appear white in the visible but dark in the UV. The pigments usually dissipate the UV energy as heat, though the breaking of bonds can also occur.
2. Fluorescent molecules absorb UV light and re-radiate that energy as visible light. This makes them look dark in the UV but glowing under black light.
3. Ultraviolet light scatters more than visible light because the wavelength is shorter and Raleigh scattering is proportional to the reciprocal of wavelength to the power of four.
