Black hole invasion in the solar system
05/03/08 at 12:33:47
 
Don't panic --- This is highly hypothetical !  
In the Baut forum there's nowadays a topic about the recently discoverd black hole kicked off from its galaxy .  
Some members were anxious to see a simulation of what might happen in case the BH would approach our solar system .
 Here's the setup :  
 
1 black hole , having 100 millions sol masses , moving toward us with an incredible velocity of 2700 km/s . Originally positioned at 1000 AU above our "heads" , but also 100 AU at the "left" , but nevertheless heading for the solarsystem . I used the downloadable Solarsystem , deleted all but the planets and created a BH with the given parameters.  
For those who want to play with it : here's the code .

And here's the result of the simulation of this monster , having about one thousand of the Milky Way galaxys mass :  
Simulation is viewed from above , looking on the ecliptic plane .  
Due to the genourmeous sucking of the black hole the outer planets' orbits "schrink " as they are attracted by the black hole above the ecliptic.  
The BH was given an event horizon of 2AU ! . For simplicity the diameter corresponds with the event horizon , meaning that everything coming close would be absorbed .  
The result is a real disaster for the solar system .  
One by one the outer planets enter the event horizon . Then comes the sun with the inner planets getting absorbed.  
Jupiter and Saturn seem to escape for a while , but they too disappear forever .  
The whole scene takes less than a year .  
I'll post also some velocity and acceleration curves later on .  
PS: Running the simulation I saw that the relative velocities were more than c at the end of the simulation . So ... Huh join MaxPlanck instute ... Wink
