Here’s what happens if the Earth collides with a black hole

(ORDO NEWS) — The physicist has created a fun calculator that calculates the consequences of the collision of planets with a black hole.

Physicist Alvardo Diez has developed an unusual online calculator . It calculates how badly the Earth will suffer from a collision with a real black hole.

With it, you can calculate how much energy will be released as a result of a collision and how much the black hole itself will expand. Of course, this is not only about the Earth – you can enter the parameters of any cosmic body.

So what happens if we are “lucky enough” to meet with a nightmarish funnel devouring entire stars? Based on the system’s calculations, a black hole swallowing the Earth would release energy roughly 55 quintillion times the annual consumption of this same energy on the entire planet.

But even this colossal event will hardly mean anything for the hole itself – its event horizon will increase by only one hundredth of a trillionth of a percent!

The main drawback of this calculator, perhaps, is that the image of a black hole swallowing our planet does not change in any way – even if you put completely absurd numbers into the line.
