    So a black hole the size of this .(period) not even a nickel like the video, would "only" have the energy of half Nagasaki. That's nice.
    Hopefully scientists at Cern don't create to big a black hole.

    Излучение Хокинга ошибочное, материя чёрных дыр не изучена, но в моей теории все что попадает в радиус ее притяжение упадет на ее и станет частью черной дыры как снежный ком увеличивая массу объекта, но то что вы умрете это факт как скорость вращение чёрной дыры выше световой она просто имея размер меньше атома порвет вас на куски

    I know I simply don't understand the math involved but I don't understand why a black hole suddenly evaporates away with an enormous explosion. Why does the thing accelerate all of a sudden. It takes trillions of trillions of years for the thing to slowly evaporate then at the end it suddenly explodes. Weird.
