What do scientist still want to know about black holes?
Here are some things that are currently unknown.
* How do supermassive black holes form?
* Are there intermediate-mass black holes? It seems there are, but this isn't very certain yet.
* Are there primordial (miniature-size) black holes? These may have formed during the Big Bang, but none have been found yet.
Most black holes are stellar mass black holes with masses comparable to those of large stars as they form from the collapse of massive stars. Scientists know of the existence of supermassive black holes that are millions to billions of times the mass of our sun and can be found in the centers of most galaxies. Scientists still do not know how these black holes become so massive.
You are most likely talking about whats beyond the event horizon. When you get inside you will probably get stretched. If a viewer from outside watches you, he will probably see you standing still because the viewer is outside the black hole's gravity when you are actually going down the black hole faster than the speed of light. Scientist still don't know whats beyond the event horizon. Scientist call this gravity singularity. Singularity means I…
Scientist believe that a black hole might/can bring us into a different universe...it has still remained a theory for a black hole stretches anything that enters it...not even light can escape...to know more about it go to youtube and search the channel vsauce.. they answer the biggest mysteries in life hope this helps (10 year old girl out!)
Well, look at it this way... If there wasn't any black holes (or if black holes didn't have a massive gravitational pull), life as we know it probably wouldn't exist. Black holes keep the galaxy together Black holes "recycle" dead stars And some people think that black holes are what created the universe in the first place!!
Black holes can nevr be seen in space. Space is black and so are black holes. People can only see black holes because of the light around the black hole. When a black hole is consuming a giant star, you can see the light around the entire black hole. That's when you know that there is a black hole in the middkle of all that light.
If you know,there lies a black hole at the center of every galaxy,so the number of galaxies in the universe,same number of black holes.But there could be trillions of galaxies,witch also means trillions of black holes. There maybe a black hole in the center of every galaxy but there are also called stellar black holes. Stellar black holes can be find ANYWHERE in space.So it is not only the ammount of galaxies. There is a…
Pretty much. While white holes are still only a theory, they are things that hypothetically allow mass and energy to escape but not enter. This is the opposite of a black hole which allows mass and energy to enter, but not to escape. Some theorize that the matter and energy escaping from the white hole may have gotten there from falling into a black hole but just missing the singularity and therefore escaping. I'm no…
The largest black holes are supermassive black holes - the black holes at the center of galaxies. The largest known such black hole has somewhere between 20 and 40 billion times the mass of our Sun. It's hard to know which of the observed black holes is really the largest (i.e., the most massive one), since the mass estimates in each individual case are currently not very accurate.
They know because of the scientific explanations of black holes. Most people think they don't exist since you can't see them. That's why they are called "black" holes. But since not even light can escape a black hole, you can see it if light looks like it's being pulled towards something and is moving in a circular-spinwheel-like motion.
Black holes will help us know more about how things grow, live and die. Rod's answer ; Black holes help us to know that if we don't ask Jesus into our hearts before we die, we will be in one forever. Just finishing my book showing the similarities between black holes and Hell and the Lake of Fire. No joke. God's out there for real!
The nearest know black hole is at a distance of several thousand light-years. There are probably black holes closer by, but they are hard to detect, if they don't happen to be part of a close binary star system.

If scientists cannot see black holes and do not know for certain that they exist why might studying them be important?
The assumptions are not quite correct.Scientists CAN see black holes. In fact, black holes are among the brightest objects in the Universe. Of course, light can't escape from WITHIN the black hole; rather, what we see is the accretion disk. Also, scientists are PRETTY SURE that black holes are real. As to why it is important: Black holes are fascinating objects by themselves. They also seem to play an important role in galaxy formation.
That is a really good question, but no one actually knows. Though we do know that one day that Black holes will die because it will become smaller and smaller and then ping, it died. However the black holes that were create from the beginning of the Universe are still exist, so it will takes billions and billions and billions and billions of years from black hole to die.
In order for them to collide, that would imply that they were moving. So can black holes move? And if so, wouldn't that just form a bigger black hole? What do you think? Yes, black holes can move. And yes, two black holes could coalesce to form a larger black hole. We know that black holes usually exist in pairs. One bigger the other smaller. Eventually yhr larger hole will predain and suck the smaller…
