Black hole CATACLYSM: Earth falling into a black hole will erupt with unimaginable force

Particle physics student Alvaro Diez from the University of Warsaw, Poland, spoke to about the effects of cosmic bodies falling into black stars.

Mr Diez is the author of the Black Hole Collision Calculator – an online tool for The Omni Calculator Project that uses mathematical models to analyse black hole collisions.

Using the Black Hole Collision Calculator, you can calculate the energy released by a body with Earth’s mass falling into a black hole five times heavier than the Sun.

According to the tool, the collision would release approximately 32,204,195,564,497,649,676,480,000,000,000,000 megajoules (MJ) of energy.
