Black Holes DON’T Exist According to Scientist Who Claims Mathematical Proof

An American physicist claims she has mathematically refuted the existence of black holes in our universe. The new theory combines Steve Hawking’s radiation theory with quantum theory’s fundamental law that no information ever disappears from the universe. Professor Laura Mersini-Houghton from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill maintains she managed to merge two seemingly contradicting theories, Einstein’s theory of gravity and a fundamental law of quantum theory.

Welcome To Laniakea: Our Supercluster Home In The Cosmos

Welcome To Laniakea: Our Supercluster Home In The Cosmos

We are part of a galactic supercluster called Laniakea, which contains a hundred million billion stars, according to a new study. The discovery, reported in the journal Nature, provides our most detailed cosmic address yet. Superclusters – regions of space that are densely packed with galaxies – are the biggest structures in the Universe. But scientists have struggled to define exactly where one supercluster ends and another begins. Now, a team based in Hawaii has come up with a new technique that maps the Universe according to the flow of galaxies across space. Redrawing the boundaries of the cosmic map, they redefine our home supercluster and name it Laniakea, which means ‘immeasurable heaven’ in Hawaiian.

How Do Monster Black Holes Form? New Find May Provide ‘Missing Link’

Black holes are some of the strangest objects in the universe, and they typically fall into one of two size extremes: “small” ones that are dozens of times more massive than the sun and other “supermassive” black holes that are billions of times larger than our nearest star. But until now, astronomers had not seen good evidence of anything in between.

Could Mystery Signal be First Detection of Dark Matter?

Through the analysis of light from distant galactic clusters, astronomers have detected a mysterious signal that they’re having a hard time explaining. Although the signal is weak, could it be the much sought-after direct evidence for dark matter? Dark matter pervades the entire universe and makes up for the bulk of its mass, but what is it? We know it’s out there and oodles of indirect evidence for its presence, but seeing a direct signal has so far proven elusive.

Our Universe May Have Emerged From a Black Hole In a Higher-Dimensional Universe

Our universe may have emerged from a black hole in a higher-dimensional universe, propose a trio of Perimeter Institute researchers. What we perceive as the big bang, they argue, could be the three-dimensional “mirage” of a collapsing star in a universe profoundly different than our own.
