Black holes, such as the one pictured in this artist's impression, may in fact be pockets of 'dark energy'.

No noise caused by an explosion in space?

What about within the matter itself?

Do you think that a blast wave in a vacuum couldn't vibrate an eardrum? Or to put it differently, do you think that a blast wave in a vacuum couldn't blow up anything?

Question: Did the "Big Bang" produce any noise?
Answer: Only in the parts that mattered.

I can't tell at what level of seriousness you meant your post. Suffice to say:

noise requires a medium

no medium in space

Now, if you're "in" the explosion, or the actual blast radius of the explosion reaches your position while it still has a sufficient energy, then yes perhaps sympathetic vibrations could cause your whole body, and eardrums, to oscillate, and you'll "hear" something.

I think Luke was too far away from those TIE Fighters for that to apply in his case, however.

Best,

Obviously, someone hasn't looked inside Barney Frank's head.

"Not to mention his ___"
 

No, I'm almost certain someone has looked in his ___, as horrible as that is to consider.

You are very close to "unraveling" (just like those socks) the Masonic Conspiracy.

So black holes don't exist, we're just seeing something that looks and acts like a black hole would, except for utilizing a different mechanism?

That's rather like saying, "'The Iliad' wasn't written by Homer, but by another Greek of the same name."

Dark matter/energy smells an awful lot like phlostigon to me, ie a hypothetical substance defined to solve a problem in current theory.

There are Black holes same as White holes, but neither sucks, they blow.

Question for you (no irrelevant math or chemical equations involved).

Let's assume black holes DO exist.

Do you think there is 'next step' for a black hole? If yes, any theory on what the next step may be? Will it continue to absorb matter for eternity, or will it at some point start releasing matter?

My opinion has always been that a black hole will eventually reach a point when it will no longer maintain it's status as a black hole.

...or is there some truth in the old adage 'once you go black, you never go back'? (sorry, I couldn't resist....but I am curious about your response to the more serious question above).

No need to get overly technical on me. Just picking your brain a bit.
