Uh, I really do not know. I suspect they may have even higher dimensions...
can you propose an idea how this might be figured out then? "higher dimensions"
A black hole is not 3D nor is it 2D.
now we have a very brave answer! so how do we know (any measurements or equations) that it is in 2-D?
That person said that its not in 2D either ...
oh I missed that! so what is the geometrical shape of a black hole then?
Spherical according to this: http://physics.stackexchange.com/questions/72824/what-is-the-shape-of-a-black-hole
LOL the link is educational and as long as its educational, its allowed. TK is a mod and so am I, so ... :)
I have linked to an educational site in the past and I was warned that it was not allowed
Some people mistakenly report others, but that doesn't mean you make a big deal out of it, y'know?
going back to the topic of shape of black holes!
Good luck with that! I suggest you go inside a black hole and find out yourself, would be fun! :)
Some people think of black holes as being circles, or worse, funnel-shaped. The funnel thing is a misconception from people trying to explain gravity as a bending in space, and they simplify things by collapsing 3D space into 2D; they say the space is like a bed sheet, and objects with mass bend space the same way that a massive object (a bowling ball, say) will warp a bed sheet. But space is not 2D, it’s 3D (even 4D if you include time) and so this explanation can confuse people about the actual shape of a black hole event horizon.
so does it have a shape or nah?
do you know black holes at all or you're just pretending to know it?
I’ve had kids ask me what happens if you approach a black hole from underneath! They sometimes don’t get that black holes are spheres, and there is no underneath. I blame the funnel story. Sadly, it’s the best analogy I’ve seen, so we’re stuck with it. Use it with care.I’ve had kids ask me what happens if you approach a black hole from underneath!

I will cite my info. Just a sec.
so by saying that the shape is sphere, are you trying to say that it has a 3-D shape? it appears that you are now contradicting yourself :(
Ten things you don't know about black holes - Bad Astronomy : Bad Astronomyhttp://blogs.discovermagazine.com/badastronomy/2008/10/30/ten-things-you-dont-know-about-black-holes/ This the link I was reading when I saw your post. I am not scientist, just thougt it woudl be a fun fact!
how do you know that it is a fact? we do not use facts in science! we use theories and laws, which are seen above and more important description than facts.
I never pretend..I share the few facts I have concerning an amazing subject. My goal if for my Open Study friends to expound on subjects I love and offer better information regarding the subject! :)
have you been at a WORLD SCIENCE FESTIVAL? http://livestream.com/share/videos/new?event_title=Reality+Since+Einstein&event_id=4063385&account_id=4044190&post_id=88777823&link=%2FWorldScienceFestival%2Fevents%2F4063385%2Fvideos%2F88777823&popup=true
since "educational" links are allowed, per an open study moderator, then let me share what will help us determine the shape of a black hole if there's indeed one that all share.
I agree with you! Thank you! what can I say? Black holes are weird.
Thank you for the medal?
