    Black hole is the rectum (ass). The elites (mainly Rotschild and Rockefellers, but there are more) are Sodomists, pefophile, pschopaths, sociopaths and Satanic. Albert Einstein was one of them. Nikola Tesla reffered to Albert Einstein as a clown, which he was!

    so is the rotational energy given by the spinning black hole like a weird version of gravity? since the narrator said that the spin drags spacetime with it

    hmm, if it's a ring we don't need to completely cover the black hole, just cover it's circumference and use a 2D reflection model.

    we don't know the backside of the black hole, then how can you build a mirror sphere around it.

    Wait... The big bang is probably not what I thought it was but you get the point. Some super nova ended intelligent life that is probably smarter than a me...

  • Orangeside Orangeside

    Has anyone come from the space filter video and is thinking the black hole bomb is the filter that killed all life before this. If we build this and blow up the bomb causing a super nova it could kill us all... But will also explain or at least give some thought about the Big Bang and if it was a super nova from a Really Really big black hole bomb that was built by smart life before us. Actually I just thought about this so that means we don't have to bomb a black hole to get some thought.

    I really wish the universal objects are like they're animated here with silly faces and personalities, so I can go up to a black hole and just ask it straight up "seriously George, just what the f are you anyway? Like stop it and just tell me."

    In the movie "Interstellar" they did exactly the thing in this video: they fired the boosters of their spaceship inside the black holes ergosphere and detached part of the ship giving the surviving part of the ship enough momentum to escape.

    About the rocket bit, the using black holes as a slingshot of sorts.Wouldn't that just, rip the rocket apart?
