Every Black Hole Contains a New Universe

Every Black Hole Contains a New Universe

The idea that our universe is entirely contained within a black hole provides answers to these problems and many more. It eliminates the notion of physically impossible singularities in our universe. And it draws upon two central theories in physics. The first is general relativity, the modern theory of gravity. The second is quantum mechanics, which describes the universe at the smallest scales, such as the level of the atom. However, quantum mechanics and general relativity are currently separate theories; physicists have been striving to combine the two successfully into a single theory of “quantum gravity” to adequately describe important phenomena, including the behavior of subatomic particles in black holes.

Was Russia’s Discovery of Water on Moon in 1976 Ignored?

(CNet) One day, when our children live on the Newt Gingrich Lunar subdivision, they will know just how watery the moon truly is. As far as we in the West have been concerned, the first proof that there might be water up there came in 1994, when the Clementine mission returned results suggesting that there […]
