Black hole event horizons are real, new evidence suggests
- Astronomers have shown that
matter likely disappears after entering a black hole, refuting an
alternate theory that matter is destroyed by colliding into a hard
surface in space.
- It’s a big deal because humanity hardly understands what black holes really are. Hollywood has incorrectly envisioned them as “cosmic vacuums” or separate time-traveling dimensions, and they’re still a mystery to the fleets of scientific labs studying them.
- As it stands, two prominent theories describe what happens to stars in space. One is the “event horizon”
theory, which argues that matter essentially gets sucked up into black
holes and then vanishes.
- Event horizons are basically a boundary around a
black hole that is literally inescapable. Their force of gravity is so
strong that nothing — including light — can escape it. Read more (5/31/17)
This is interesting and also horrifying
where does it go if its not in our universe anymore, but the black hole is still not a gateway?
Is it just… energy?
