Can you do a video on “white holes?” I think it would be very similar to this, but it’s an interesting topic/theory I would like to learn more about, nobody explains it better than you! Thanks :)

And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: (Heb 9:27) For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9) The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:9) I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. (Luke 13:5)

Honestly the way I want to go, I want to be made a scientist during death. By being launched into a black hole and reporting what it’s like back to a ship nearby. Or, is their gravitational force so strong that even radio waves n junk can’t escape? Also Kurzgesagt thank you so much for covering more on the topic of black holes! They are extremely interesting and I love the topic.

Can someone explain me, why does the halking radiation gain speed during the time? While the surface of the event horizon is shrinking, and therefore the amount of "halking interactions" on the surface, during time, should decrease as well. (By the assumption that the halking radiation is konstant during space time
