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?

Hey! I am wondering, does anyone know if spinning black holes move/spin through space - i.e. are they mobile and could they potentially move into our solar system. Someone asked me this question and I was stumped for an answer, I knew OF spinning black holes but I do not know if they rotate on an axis or if they move through space.

Gryvity is an apparent force and is therefore treated as a force. Electromagnetism is also just the interaction between particles using photons, but we also treat it the same way we treat gravity: As a force

Is there a better name for calling a black hole, which is moving randomly, because a black hole is not a hole in space? This video shows that the black hole is sucking the star materials to make secretion disks: one disk vertically and another horizontally around the black hole. Some other videos on SVfrom show that the black hole sucks the stars and planets or any solar system into the black hole.

Black holes are vortex of matter where it is recycled into the original fields of the constituting particles then after such gigantic field expulsion (electric not visible and magnetic perfectly visibles ) are used to seed new suns and planets out of the surrounding space plasma dust.. Eternity (as infinite space) exist there but our cortex based on limited organic life time and space by nature of life birth and duration is unable to accept the absence of limits.Speed of light is everywhere including in all electro-magnetic fields flux modifications but lab experiments show that it is not true that speed of light is a constant. Only time is a constant and the only forces in the Universe have an electro-magnetic fields origin that is why Einstein theory need curious postulates (beliefs) like black matter to explain the universe as an example. Gravity (Newton law) was previously explained by a magnetic like attraction force equation.because that is what it is;(due to the particles linked in matter magnetic lines loss)
Looking forward for humanity to harness the power of black holes

The documentary is very good and does not leave us stupid. We have an explanation for some phenomena and that reassures us, even if we can't do anything. I also put some thoughts here, maybe something resonates further in time. Obviously black holes are made of antimatter and their negative energy will not turn into anything until they swallow an equivalent amount of positive energy. However, I do not believe that black holes migrate, I believe that we and all the planets and celestial bodies migrate towards them. A continuous process of balancing energies. It seems that not everything was born out of nothing without an initial vibration. The vibration caused the vacuum to break into equal opposing forces, which were separated and so the mass-carrying light was carried away by the vibration wave, and the antimatter (darkness) remained in place because it was not subject to the influence of vibration. Therefore, the black, hungry hole appeared to compensate for its negative energy. There may have been several Big Bang nuclei made up of a single vibration, but only the generator / creator of that vibration could know how many there were. It is possible to perceive something related to this, maybe the reflected reverberations, maybe the fact that the earth is like a living being and from the nucleus to the surface magma, everything is moving. Nothing is clear, it's just speculation. Our souls are cultivated in matter, and positive energy and their time is not infinite to evolve beautifully. That's all we need to understand.

Isn't a spinning black hole a paradox? I understand that they do rotate but.. How can an object that has infinite density and take up no space rotate? You have to have a center and outer surface to create a spin right? When your talking about a singularity your talking about an object that doesn't have an area.. so how does it spin? This is where I'd argue that black holes do give us clues to their nature.. I suspect that they're truly dark stars.. I don't think they truly collapse completely.. And if they don't, then they most certainly can spin,

Gravitational collapse is a myth.. It is described but never explained. The maximum gravity is at the surface of an object. it cancels out to zero at the centre of mass. Write your gravitational equatios properly. Two masses become one long before r approaches 0. Two masses can't occupy the same space. They merge into one. The very idea that the weakest force could be concentrated to overcome the strogest forces is not provable mathematically. A singularity cannot not be created. It would have to exist before it was created. You can't have the gravity to create a singularly withot a singularly already there. If you can't understand this then it is because no matter how hard I try I cannot teach calculus to a dog! Some of you claim that gravity is not even a force! So much for the force of gravity If you think space is curved then CURVE THIS. Excuse the profanity.

It's often hard to teach people certain things without a basis of understanding of fundamentals in a subject. You'd learn some of these things in a GR course or grad astrophysics courses. Derek is special because he's so good at explain advanced physics concepts to beginners without getting too math heavy (and because math and physics go hand in hand it can be very challenging to explain the latter without the former)

If the matter on the accretion disk is moving at slightly faster than 1/2 the speed of light, relative to the singularity; does this mean the matter moving towards us is faster than the speed of light? Likewise, is matter moving away from us at the speed of light?

So if we could push the black hole beyond the maximum spin we could let light escape and see the singularity... But then we would also be able to see everything it ate and compacted... Would that mean if we spun it fast enough we would be able to harvest whatever material is at the center... Other than it being so hot and radioactive that nothing would be able to touch it without bursting into flames or getting all the cancer ever or just being turned to ash. But if we could pull it out let it cool yade yada we would see a perfect crystaline structure of whatever it turned into or a single atom with all protons and neutrons

Why do we see stars !? A star is an omnidirectional emitter of coherent electromagnetic waves! In essence, we see a pillar of a ray of light! Everything is very simple! We see stars only because our Sun in our galaxy flies in sync with the rest of the stars! The distance between the stars is increasing, but it is so very - a slow process that lasts for millions of years. That is, an astronomer cannot observe the change in such long processes, since Earth time flies by with lightning speed! And so, now we know that distant stars are statically attached to one coordinate point in the sky, but why does the light of the stars travels so long distances, reaching our optic nerve? 4746 It's all about COHERENCE! The emitted light of the stars forms a kind of laser beam of light, in one of the radiation spectra such as X-rays this radiation is most effective. The rotation of the stars around their axis further enhances the coherence by pumping the beam. In fact, we see a column of a ray of light, but we see only that beam-column that flies in our direction, forming a peak - an energy point. In neighboring solar systems, people observe the phase radiation of the beam but several degrees to the side. The formed point in the sky confirms that the star is exactly in the place of its coordinates! if the Star could move relative to our Sun, then no coherent ray would be able to form. www.flickr.com/photos/125896111@N07/50431730627/in/dateposted-public/
