Black holes are the condensed stellar remnants of supermassive stars that have reached the end of their lives. They can often be seen emitting brightly in X-rays due to matter falling on their surface from a companion body, but they are only visible because of gravitational distortion in the vicinity.
Although black holes cannot be directly flown into, they do pose a minor hazard to travelers. Arriving in a system with a black hole will result in a pilot’s ship colliding with the exclusion zone almost immediately.
Supermassive Black Holes
Supermassive black holes are vastly more massive variants of normal black holes that form when an initial black hole begins to swallow ever more mass, and can be several million solar masses. Sagittarius A* is the Milky Way’s only known supermassive black hole.
The idea that dropping into one’s exclusion zone will result in a player’s ship continuously accumulating heat or hull damage, similar to a normal star, is a common misconception about black holes. This idea may have arisen from players mistaking that emergency drops from supercruise only inflict a small amount of hull and module damage.

What are the dangers of a black hole?
Massive black holes are dangerous in two ways: they can suck you in if you get too close, and they can flare up into intense activity and pump out a huge amount of radiation when their gravity pulls in nearby stars and gas. Massive black holes are dangerous in two ways: they can suck you in if you get too close, and they can pump out a huge amount of radiation when their gravity pulls in nearby stars and gas.
What happens if you go inside a black hole?
The event horizon of a black hole is the point of no return; anything that passes through it will be swallowed by the black hole and vanish forever from our known universe. The black hole’s gravity is so strong at the event horizon that no amount of mechanical force can overcome or counteract it.
What happens if you go through a black hole in elite dangerous?
Unless the pilot reduces their throttle or equips a Supercruise Assist and toggles the “Hyperspace Dethrottle” function, arriving in a system with a black hole will almost always result in the pilot’s ship colliding with the exclusion zone and making an emergency drop into normal space.
Where do things go in a black hole?
The matter that falls into a black hole is thought to be crushed into a tiny point at the center called a “singularity,” which is the only place that matter can exist. If you fell into a black hole, you wouldn’t hit a surface like you would with a normal star.
Why can’t we escape a black hole?
Because nothing can travel faster than the speed of light, nothing can escape a black hole’s event horizon.
Could a human survive a black hole?
The radial size of the event horizon is dependent on the mass of the respective black hole and is critical for a person to survive falling into one. A person falling into a supermassive black hole would likely survive.
What is inside a Blackhole?
HOST PADI BOYD: While a black hole may appear to be a hole in the sky because it doesn’t produce light, it’s actually a lot of matter condensed into a single point, known as a singularity.
Has anyone been in a Blackhole?
But, if you’re going to try it, there’s one small catch: scientists believe humans could enter a black hole to study it, but they wouldn’t be able to report their findingsu2014or ever return.
Where is Gargantua black hole?
Gargantua is most likely in or near the galaxy’s center, and due to the presence of a large number of neutron stars and IMBHs (intermediate mass black holes), it could be the home galaxy’s super-massive black hole.
How close can you get to a black hole elite dangerous?
Even with full throttle and boost, you won’t be able to get any closer, and your HUD will display an alert “Body Exclusion Zone Hit.” Most black holes I’ve encountered have Body Exclusion Zones of around 20-40 kilometers, but some have Body Exclusion Zones of over 100 kilometers.
Where is Earth on elite dangerous?
The human species’ homeworld is Earth, which is located in the Sol system.
Does time stop in a black hole?
The slowing of time near a black hole is extreme; time stops from the perspective of an observer outside the black hole; inside the black hole, the flow of time draws falling objects into the black hole’s center; no force in the universe can stop this fall any more than we can stop the flow of time.
Where does energy go in a black hole?
While no energy can escape beyond the black hole’s event horizon, energy is released from the material as it falls in; accretion onto a black hole is the most efficient process for emitting energy from matter in the Universe, releasing up to 40% of the material’s rest mass energy.
Does time go backwards in a black hole?
Time does not run backwards inside a black hole; time passes in a perfectly “normal” manner for an observer inside a black hole, as it does at the horizon. The stopping of time at the horizon, as you mentioned, is a phenomenon that only an outside observer experiences.
