    What I don't get is, how can a 10cm-thick 2km-long spherical mirror hold as much energy as a supernova!?!?!? That wasn't really explained in the video... Wouldn't the mirror shatter way before it got to supernova levels?

    Technically what you would get from that would just be a blueshifted version of the light you put into it, and depending on the amount of blue shifting it's entirely possible or even likely that the only thing that would come out of it would be gamma rays, something that is not easy to stop with any known mirror. They would just pass right through any sort of structure that we built around it.
    Also ergospheres accelerate things to faster than the speed of light and create a closed timelike curve, so if you shot a laser into the black hole it's also probable that the light would only exit the ergosphere at the moment when the ergosphere was created, in the past, and possibly in some other reality where we would be unable to retrieve it. Given our poor understanding of how things actually behave in such extreme regimes of space and time it's also possible that we might get even weirder results than that.
    However if we aim our light beam near the ergosphere without actually hitting it, we could potentially do what you've described with the result that the outgoing light would still be blue shifted by a lot, in which case we could reasonably predict the outgoing trajectory without needing to completely enclose the black hole with a mirror. We would still need to be careful to ensure that the outgoing light was at a frequency that we could usefully absorb and convert into energy, and there's the problem that the energy difference would need to be greater than the losses incurred both when generating the light and when converting it back into usable energy at the other end.
    That's a very large number of ifs.

  • Supertyp
    Supertyp 5 days ago

    But, no one can really fall into a black hole. At the horizon the orbital speed becomes light speed so all matter is transformed into pure energy and trapped there. At light speed time doesn't pass for you so you are falling forever and never passing the horizon.

    The radiation emitted from a black hole would tear every atom in your body apart and scatter it into the ether long long long before you ever got remotely close to the ergosphere, let alone the event horizon. Every picture you've ever seen of a black hole has been CGI.

  • Phạm Minh Nhật // MusicalAtom

    The only thing I am confused is: Does the “ringularity” have its own center, or singularity to be exact? Is the ringularity spinning around the its singularity? So basically a spinning black hole still spins around its singularity, right?

      We would be trapped without escape, even at infinite speeds.

      The tidal forces of the black hole would break hydrostatic equilibrium of the star and rip it apart, making a accretion disk, and subsequently consuming the matter.

    Wouldn't the mirrors more transparent as the "light" gets more energetic?? Don't know if there is anything past gamma radiation.
    And if the "light" gains velocity then it would be able to escape the event horizon?

  • johnathan cenacrust
    johnathan cenacrust 10 days ago

    Two questions:
    1. why would a black hole's angular velocity need to increase to preserve its angular momentum? Isn't the mass constant, just getting compressed into a singularity? (And later increasing, when mass is added to it)
    2. How would a black hole add energy to electromagnetic radiation? How can light increase in speed?

We all know that the Universe is dying and all but what if the universe is dying to create a new one. As if it rewrites itself over and over....... I am not a scientist, I am just a 14 year old who had a shower thought. I don't claim that i am super good at high school and its as i said it's a Shower thought. I'm just curious, and I'm not a Scientist, i just want to say my tiny theory, I'm not an intellectual and have the greatest score of all my class, I'm just a curious 14 yo boy..... Soo, peace ^^
