      If the Singularity is a point where all the Black Holes mass is then is the Event Horizon just the space where you'd die?

          Question: Will this video have a correction added for when it mentions "This is how all the heavy elements are formed", now that it's been revealed that heavy elements are also formed by combining neutron stars (as you indeed mention in your new neutron star video)?

                    Hawking radiation confuses me, isn't there a 50% chance that a regular particle apperes in the event horizon? Wouldnt that just feed the black hole and cancel out anti particles?

                      Maybe that’s the reason we don’t see no anti-matter.

                    Actually as you cross an enter into the Event Horizon you begin to stretch it's called spaghettification actually this doesn't happened tell your past the Event Horizon and supermassive black holes it only happens with stellar-mass black holes

                      Actually a black hole is actually not a whole but more or less a location where the star has collapsed and falling through the space-time Continuum to the point of a singularity but it doesn't go all the way

                        Correction it's not radiation versus gravity its pressure from thermonuclear Fusion an energy pressing out vs gravity

                            4:20 That’s about 147 billion miles! So if light travels at about 125,000 miles per second, just divide 147 billion by 125,000. Your gonna get the seconds. Now when converting that into days that’s about 13 days of traveling at light speed to get from one end of the black hole to another!

                                            So if the black hole is emitting Hawking radiation losing energy and mass in a process of matter to energy conversion, or antimatter to matter energy conversion, the dynamics of which would mostly be in the form of photons of light when the black hole is not consuming stars, gases, or solid matter, but just stray light. If one survived a black hole long enough approaching the speed of light and be able to transmit data or the observation of actual light waves and photons speeding past toward the singularity, there is still the riddle of what subatomic particles (Higgs, quarks, gluons, bosons or their antimatter counterparts) lends to the extreme gravity, time dilation, or even a dimensionless singularity (or multi-dimensional and timeless singularity); under conditions as such that would allow for that, be it an anti-matter plasma engine annihilating matter and light existing as a multi-dimensional quantum structure of a sort we have yet to fathom. Perhaps iron is atomically collapsed to a superheated gaseous anti-iron form of matter-plasma, and there are still particles beyond the Higgs boson to be discovered, or theoretically a black hole produces more antimatter than matter maintaining its anti-balance of mass, gravity, and matter against the fabric of the known spatial dimensions. Fancifully put.

                                              There are no black holes. This is misunderstanding, it should be called debreeze in the space, that eventually comes to be planets and stars. They are tremendously big that's covering and swallowing Stars and planets when they get on the way.

                                                So after eating up massive amouts of matter planets and such. The gravity becomes so much it crushes massive amounts of atoms at once to create a huge explosion.

                                                      How do you know that gravity works under such conditions? What if gravity hinders upon certain conditions and if those conditions are violated then isn’t safe to assume that gravity will henceforth cease to operate? So a singularity is a point of infinite density and infinitely small then isn’t the very constructs of reality and matter being changed into something that is irreversible? Everything (I think) works because it meets certain conditions and has certain attributes. But a singularity is breaking down the fundamentals of matter and everything that makes matter work and thereby solidity and weight and all the workings of matter are being changed into something that can no longer operate as something we can understand or relate to in any way. So gravity would be made obsolete too, because it no longer has the mechanics to accommodate it any longer. Just saying.
