It might have more to do with why you are hear than with why you won’t...
True, ripped apart and then compressed. Not just squeezed into a mini earth.
It's like WinZip, but for galaxies/matter (possibly antimatter)!
...and all the data gets corrupted.
Another Big Bang perhaps.
This universe can’t handle two Sheldons.
The vastness of space takes my wildest imagination and blows it to smithereens. If I'm not mistaken, light travels 5.9 trillion miles per year. Times 50+ million. That's how far away they say this black hole is.
How long would it take a C182 at 65% power to get there? And could it make a round trip on a tank of fuel?
@Katamarino could make it there and back.
That's right. He has ferry tanks.
2,185,185,185,185,185,185 years at 135KTS
That's assuming no headwind ...
Ed, Ed, Ed.... astronomers use STATUTE miles. You gotta convert to nautical before dividing by the 135. I expected better from you...
Edit: also, is your number really in hours, or years?
Thanks, it's a small distinction, but an important one. Not nearly as egregious, but when you see the posts and articles of "this is what space sounds like" I always cringe a little
With a number that big does it really matter? But it SHOULD be in hours....and I'm off 15%.
5,900,000,000,000 sm/ly x 50,000,000 ly x 0.869 nm/sm
----------------------------------------------------------------------- = 1,900,161,030,595,813,204 hours
Don’t forget solar wind correction angles...
I'd be guessing that dark matter/energy pockets might affect it more.
Might fly too close to a supernova or through an uncharted asteroid field. It ain't like dusting crops, kid.
And THIS is why the 182 is the best general purpose airplane out there. Once in space it could be 999,999,999,999x MTOW and still make it. And even though the fuel is gravity fed (see what I did there ) it wouldn't need to burn any fuel so you could even add another 480lbs.
Unfortunately, due to the nature of flying near a black hole @Katamarino would come back younger than us.
That’s not much smaller than a womp rat...
that's what she said!
I'm OK with this.
You’ll be dead.
