What happens if you fall into a black hole?

You hardly ever want to go to the black hole

Immediately disappoint fans of science fiction. In fact, you can't survive a trip through a black hole. And if you try to get at least one of them, as did Matthew McConaughey in the film "interstellar", you will be torn to pieces long before you know what is inside a black hole. However, scientists are not just watching these mysterious space objects the last ten years. This allowed us to answer two questions: what is a black hole, and that (in theory) is inside of her.

To fully understand why you can't just fall or run your spaceship into a black hole, you must first understand the basic properties of these space objects.

Black holes are not just called that way because they do not reflect and do not emit light. They are visible only when absorb another star or gas cloud, which then can not escape the boundary of the black hole, called an event horizon. Beyond the event horizon is a tiny point — the singularity, where gravity is so intense that it . It is here that the laws of physics as we know them, are violated, this means that all theories about what is inside a black hole is speculation.

This picture is considered to be M87. It is 55 million light years from Earth

Black holes seem exotic to most of us, but for scientists, that they spetsializiruyutsya, their study is very common. Physicists have theories about such objects for decades after he predicted the existence of black holes. However, this concept was not taken seriously until the 1960s, years before scientists witnessed the absorption of stars by black holes. Today black holes are considered to be part of stellar evolution, astronomers suspect that even in our milky Way galaxy millions of them.

Black holes come in different types and can be simulated with different levels of difficulty. For example, one can rotate and the other to contain an electric charge. So if you got one of them (well, let's say, you would be torn to shreds before), your exact fate may depend on what kind of black hole you will encounter.

The Black holes with the mass of stars are formed when very large stars end their life cycle and are destroyed. Relic black holes is still poorly understood, and for all time was found only a few such objects. But astronomers believe that their education is similar to that of supermassive black holes.

After the destruction of the star can become a black hole

Stellar black holes in size may be negligible compared to their larger brothers, but in fact they have a more extreme tidal forces beyond their event horizon. This difference arises due to the special property of black holes that might surprise some casual observers. Smaller black holes have a stronger gravitational field than a supermassive. That is, you will soon notice the change in gravity near a small black hole.

Suppose you somehow managed to be in the space near a stellar black hole. How do find? The only hint that it exists, can be gravitational distortion or reflection from the stars that are close by.

But as soon as you come closer to this strange place, your body will be stretched in one direction and squashed in another is a process which scientists call the spaghettification. They indicated a strong stretch objects vertically and horizontally (that is, the assimilation of their mind spaghetti), caused by a large tidal force is very strong nonhomogeneous gravitational field. In simple words, the gravity of a black hole will compress your body horizontal and in the vertical direction to pull it like taffy. You will not be able to breathe, speak and read even more.

And this is the most decent picture of what might be inside a black hole

If you jumped into a black hole "soldier", the gravitational force on your fingers would be much stronger than the force that pulls you over the head. Every piece of your body will be stretched in a different direction. The black hole will literally make you spaghetti.

So, hitting a stellar black hole, you probably won't be much to worry about "space" the secrets that you can access on the "other side". You'll be dead for hundreds of kilometers before will know the answer tothe question.

This scenario is not totally based on theories and assumptions. Astronomers witnessed a "tidal destruction" in 2014, when several space telescopes have caught a star wandering too close to the black hole. The star , causing part of it fell beyond the event horizon, and the rest was discarded into space.

If to overcome the event horizon, it is possible to achieve a gravitational singularity

In contrast to the drop in stellar black hole, your experience of immersion in or the relic supermassive black hole will be a little less nightmarish. Although end result, terrible death, still remain the only scenario. However, in theory you can go all the way to the event horizon and reach the singularity, is still alive. If you continue to fall towards the event horizon, you will eventually see the light of the stars is compressed to a tiny point behind you, changing the color to blue due to gravitational blue shift. And then... the darkness. Nothing. Inside the event horizon no light from the outside Universe will not be able to get to your vehicle. As you will no longer be able to go back.

So that Matthew McConaughey is very lucky .
