    Death Cry of a Star

    Astronomers hear the "death cry" of a star shredded by a black hole. - latimes.com
    The data show that the black hole's oscillation or "cry" cycled every 3.5 minutes, which means the accretion disk lies between 2.2 million and 5.8 million miles from the center of the black hole. The exact distance depends on how fast the black hole itself is spinning. The signals "send us information from the very brim of the black hole, which is where the effects of relativity become most extreme," Reis said. "The ability to gain insight into these processes over such a vast distance is a truly beautiful result and holds great promise."

    Re: Death Cry of a Star

    I'm a complete idiot when it comes to this stuff, so don't laugh at me when I ask....

    When things go into a black hole do they just get destroyed and disappear, or do things come out the other end somewhere? I've always wondered if black holes just took you into another parallel Universe or something?

    Remember, I have no clue what I'm talking about, so take it easy on me!

    To address this, though, we can't currently know what happens beyond the event horizon since nothing (that we know of) beyond that point can make it's way back to us. If we sent in a probe, once it passed the horizon we'd cease to receive signals from it so all we can currently do is guess at what happens next.

    They get comacted until they become a singularity. Which, basically means that it becomes nothing and disappears.

    Now...is that the 'black hole', or the 'other end' that things come out of? I'm torn...on one hand, the sucking in that location is nearly unimaginable, but on the other hand, it's also constantly pumping out a bunch of crap.
