Black holes are terrifying.

One of my goals while exploring was to find a black hole and fly through/around it. I just found a black hole today, but I’m terrified of them. I’ve read and watched people have absolutely no problems/issues when flying near them. That was not my experience.

I decided that I’d do a flyby to see how big it was, but it was in a close orbit to a nearby star, so I couldn’t really gauge how big it was without getting in the exclusion zone of the nearby star. I decide that I’ll fly through the edge of the black hole just to see what it’s like. I didn’t expect it to be so warped and weird, but it wasn’t too bad. I did another pass, but closer this time. All of a sudden my heat jumps to 100% and I’m dropped out of low wake.

So here I am in the middle of a black hole that’s bigger than I thought, overheating, my perspective is warped to hell, and my fsd is on cooldown. Luckily, I had a heatsink, so I managed to cooldown and jump away with minimal damage.

So what was your guy’s first experience with black holes like?
