I know the black hole has put a lot of us on edge because... well, we don't know what's going to happen if we get sucked in. A lot of us are convinced that we'll die if we're sucked in.
[He looks out the porthole at the black hole below.]
Death and dying are natural occurrences... but in this place, the definition of natural occurrences is pretty impressive. Has anyone thought about the possibility of something else happening if we were sucked in? Like, if the ship somehow survives, and if there's something waiting on the other side?
[He continues to watch the black hole for a while, before looking away, shaking his head with a chuckle.]
Maybe it's just wishful thinking on my part...
