Of course it is true. Not for humans though.

Perhaps this only applies to animals after all.

Probably applies to aliens too. They are the ones most likely to be piloting spacecraft.

hehe, I meant the size in proportion to the black hole distance. Ofcourse star trek could've been a true story from alien inc. m8.

I am sorry, I did not think of that. Yes, but thinking about Star Trek the next generation, they can cure the common cold, insanity and criminal behaviour. How come they cannot grow some hair on top of Picard's head?

No, I saw the last one, it has Q in it also. But even Q cannot grow anything on that desert.

So basically my understanding of this is that if anything blows up it's gonna be the blue whale. (Could someone monitor those things?)

PS. I was joking about blowing up, but they might grow a bit more whilst the black hole comes closer.

Wait a minute. So your thinking is that we should monitor the blue whale as they are good indicators of how close that thing is.

We should have some sort of beeper on them, that transmitted it's data continously, we would want no data delay. I've thought through a few facts meanwhile.

Seemingly, my information from the magellan cloud is moving x times the speed of light, through the capilar, exactly how does that effect the time that I interacted in? Is it possible that star trek is a record of the future and we are infact in the past, or is that totally of the question?

Hi LQ;

Okay, one thing at a time. How do we get a beeper on those whales?

I fear we do not have the time, if the bluewhales weight double in 172.4 years we have 344.8 years left before the black hole comes here, in about half lightspeed.

Tell me quick bobbym, what impact would that have on us?

They would eat the earth. Is the simplest way to put it.

darn, you're right... This is terrible; Is there a way to evacuate 3 or 4 people before we totally annihilate?

3 or 4? We need a ship, a ship with super luminar capabilities.

Where would we get that? There's just no way we can get one, how did this cituation even occur, how is this possible? How come we aren't seeing it right now?? It should be right out there not far from here, it's got to be visible!

Have you estimated the distance, I do not remember?

It seems to be no more then 195 lightyears away. Bloody nightmare of a planet, this, I might leave by some weird phenomenon... I just don't know how yet, I shall meditate some on it.

195 light years is a very long way. It could be very small. Since no light can escape from it, it is also very dark. In the blackness of space you would only be aware of it by it's effects on other objects.

Keep a sharp eye out. It's somewhere in the vincinity, I can feel it now. scan for black holes in about that distance, use whatever technology is available, I want gravitomagnetism detectors etc. etc. It must release... something. Check the blue whales, see what they say, things are going downhill.

Those gravity detectors did not work. And the whales are not speaking to me. Any other ideas?

One should be able to detect it due to change in infrared, along a line in space, like a path.
