science is awesome. .. The Information may be lost (i.e. become inaccessible until we master black holes, which will probably take a VERY long time), but it is not destroyed. Energy c science is Awesome

The Information may be lost (i.e. become inaccessible until we master black holes, which will probably take a VERY long time), but it is not destroyed. Energy can never be destroyed or created, it just changes into a different form.

I just felt the need to add that.

actually, it's slowly returned to space through hawking/browning radiation.
i have no idea why this isn't more commonly known, it's one of Hawking's major discoveries.

the information is added to the surface area of the blackhole, its information is just converted.

Information is very different from energy. In theoretical physics information is the most abundant entity in the known universe. Do some research on quantum information and it might give you an idea as to what this means.

The gravity of black holes is so immense, nothing can escape it. not even light. all the things inside of a black holes still exists but we cannot see it because it does not emit any light.

Nice discussion going on about black holes in this thread, and just in case someone didn't know, I can add that black holes is just a theory, and we have no idea if anything like it exist.
Most information we have about outer space is just theories.
No **** throwing/captain obvious intended, this might not be common knowledge to everyone.

We actually know a lot of black holes, and we documented a lot of them. We even know that a super massive black hole is in the center of our galaxy and maybe even every galaxy there is. They seem to be a very important part in the forming of galaxies. There are a lot of documentaries about them and i would be lying if i say i understand most of it.

tl:dr There is a lot of proof for the existence of black holes, and we even have seen some (not directly, because they absorb light, but we can see the missing light and the event horizon.)

hold on, its never actually lost. its just there, but the "there" is nowhere. And black holes decay over time, so anything that enters it, comes out as pure elements or energy. If we could collect that energy, and maybe transfer it to matter, we could make "something out of nothing", like the first alchemisats wished to do

radiation is too thinly dispersed and widespread to use. look up lftr for what we should be using for energy.

I seriously don't think humanity knows enough about energy and black holes, or the universe in general, to make any big conclusions like this yet.

Personally i think we will wipe ourselves out (or at least bomb us back into a second stone age) before we get that far.

I really hope I'm wrong, but we are still predators, after all. We **** each other over for a living.

The same here... But I'm a masochistic mathematician so probably not in the same way you mean it.

AGH I know I will probably get thumbed down like last time I said this but E=mc^2 is NOT the theory of relativity. E^2=m^2c^4+p^2c^2 is. p is the momentum of the object, so if the object isn't moving (as in no kinetic energy at all), then yes E=mc^2 but otherwise, it is that equation I said above.
Also there is no known "still" object, unless you are talking in a specific frame of reference such as looking at a sample of atoms, but even then there is most likely some kinetic energy going on.

true.
also the equation you wrote helps to understand why nothing with mass can move faster than the speed of light
(explanation in the link)

E=mc^2 is the theory of relativity for objects at rest

Shut up. You probably just learned this through minute physics, and now you're coming off as if this was general knowledge that everyone should have already know.
Just stop it. You're not smart.

what if he did learn it from minutephysics...how is that any different from learning it from school or from a book

where did you learn it?
oh really?
WELL YOU DIDN'T DESERVE TO LEARN IT FROM THERE YOU'RE NOT SMART GTFO

you see? ^that sounds stupid, doesn't it.

Coulomb's law's explanation isn't right though, it's the same as gravity, just for electric charges.

Doesn't really take a genius to solve a Pythagorean triple.
On the other hand, that is one sexy Einstein.
Never thought I'd say that...
