    They merge and make one bigger black hole.

    do black holes ever end, or do they just keep sucking everything in?
    and in what happens all that light in a black hole? it must be very bright in the center of a black hole

    in theory light goes fast when it comes into contact with a black hole, E=C x C2
    but if light dont have a mass E=0xC2 then light should just "stop" of cease to exist

    but thats just my theory

    We don't allow personal theories on our science forums. There's a procedure for getting them posted on a special forum. Light has momentum and energy, but not mass. Its momentum is [tex]p = h\nu[/tex], where nu is the frequency and h is Planck's constant, and its energy is pc.

    To answer your second question, blackholes do eventually end due to a process called Hawking radiation (Radiation emitted from a blackhole due to quantum effects).
