YAY! I was kinda right for once! lol. Back to the topic....What about The sun being sucked up by a blackhole, but only the sun not the planets, and the planet eventually freezes and everything DIES. DEAD. Maybe some bacteria, but besides that How would it not be a lifeless planet? It'd be so dead it makes Me feel evil...And I like that.

If a black hole gets close enough to suck up the sun, it is an almost certainty the accompanying planets will go with it. However, the star's death could have a similar effect, freezing the planet and no longer providing light, but the planet would remain in orbit. If the star turns into a black hole, then you have a planet orbiting a black hole instead of a sun, but I'm not sure whether life would be able to form on a planet with star that big to start with.

Black holes aren't really vacuum cleaners. If a small (earth sized?) black hole approaches the sun, then it shouldn't really mess up the planet that badly. All it could do is shift the orbit of the planet, which doesn't really matter much if the sun's a black hole.

In terms of life surviving, unless the life on it has interstellar capabilities, all you'll really have are thermosynthetics surviving of geothermal heat. Some highly adaptable life might be able to just grip onto survival (A Pail of Air, anyone?), which is another way life may go on. If a civilisation is at the nanotech level, then astronomers might be able to fortell the black hole and build sealed, nuclear powered arcologies to help people survive.

Also, MeowMan, your ideas are awesome. I wish I was as create as you.
Remember, the planet will still be orbiting while the star begins being drawn in by the black hole. Bear in mind the time it would take for a star to be consumed completely. Without intervention of a godly nature (i.e. god tools), the planet will get its orbit distorted so much it either falls into the black hole, or falls into the star. Either way, it wont make it out in one piece. Well, unless it's one very tiny piece, the size of a pinhead.

I don't really think any level of shelter on the planet will be any use against the surface of a star, or a black hole. Unless they pack their biome-pods and flee, they'll be destroyed with it. So, it will be a post-apocalyptic planet while it lasts, but it will be put to death relatively quickly, rather than sailing away with the good fortune of just freezing temperatures and eternal night.

I suppose the end of planets was what this thread is about, before it became end of life of planets, so absolute annihilation works too.

Belgium, I was kind of hoping the planets would remain in orbit as the star was gobbled up.

Also, could a black hole kick the planet out of the system rather than suck it into the star? Then at least the biome-pod will surive on the surface.

Planets can easily be kicked out of orbit, they become wandering planets. We've already discussed life on them and it won't be in the game.
