What would happen if you fell into a black hole? NASA shows terrible simulation

After its publication on YouTube, Internet users did not hide their astonishment, describing the clip as “ awesome“, “ beautiful” and “ really cool“. One of them commented: “ Black holes are such a fascinating part of space, and I find them incredibly cool, but, man, do they unlock a deep fear inside of me“.

How possible is this? Spoiler: almost zero (currently)

However, as NASA explains, the first-person perspective offered by the hypothetical “camera” is enormously accelerated: it manages to reach 60 percent of the speed of light. This camera should represent an astronaut’s point of view if we could ever reach a black hole, something that is currently impossible.

Fortunately, the odds of Earth ever being swallowed by a black hole are “almost zero“. So the chances are at least less than once every 4.5 billion years and probably much less. The closest black hole to Earth, called Gaia BH1, is about 1,600 light years away and is 10 times the size of our sun.

For now, exploring them remains an impossible journey, but NASA is giving us a glimpse of their magnitude through impressive simulations.
