Are Aliens Hiding Inside Black Holes?

Are Aliens Hiding Inside Black Holes?

Last week, NASA unveiled the first ever image of a black hole. It looks like an orange donut, a mysterious eye in the dark vacuum of space. But the question has never been what does a black hole look like? The real question is how are aliens involved in all this?

CERN’s LHC: Will We Find Parallel Universes…or the Gates of Hell?

Bad news on the Large Hadron Collider front: a short circuit could delay its scheduled restart, which would have happened right about now, for “days or even weeks,” according to BBC News. Now, while this is mostly par for the course, some people are actually relieved that the LHC’s reboot has been delayed. Why? Well, …

LHC. Nap TiME!

CERN’s Large Hadron Collider Is About To Take A Nap

Everyone hoping for CERN to create microsingularities will have to wait a while longer, as the Large Hadron Collider will soon be shutting down until 2015. A two-year downtime period will begin in February, when engineers will steadily warm the accelerator up to room temperature and begin necessary maintenance and upgrades, which will last until …

Woman Tries (And Fails) To Shut Down Large Hadron Collider

A German woman has failed to successfully shut down CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC), after taking her case to court and claiming that the particle accelerator would generate a black hole, swallowing Earth into oblivion. Her claim went before a German court on Tuesday, where it was rejected citing “no evidence to doubt the correctness of …

UK Scientists Hope To “Mimic” Black Holes In Lab

Before the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN finally began operation, there was a small movement to shut the project down, out of fear that scientists would inadvertently create a black hole that would swallow the entire planet. This obviously didn’t happen, and probably won’t. Now, however, perhaps we should cast our gaze over to …

Could A Kerr Black Hole Be Used To Travel Through Time?

Common knowledge tells us that a journey into a black hole ends, well, badly. That’s because its center — the singularity — is an infinitely dense region of space-time, from which nothing can escape. But, as our twisted universe would have it, there’s actually a certain type of theoretical black hole that may lack a …
