#BlackHole #Universe – New Theory Suggests Black Holes Are “Back Doors” to The Universe : A team of researchers propose an alternative explanation to what a black hole contains, one that deviates from Einstein’s theory of gravity. They propose that a simple, rotational, electrically charged black hole contains new geometric elements, like those of crystals and graphene, with a spherical center point.
Scientists believe that in the middle of a black hole is a one-dimensional point that contains a huge mass despite its infinitely small space. And in this point, the density of matter becomes infinite, the whole fabric of space-time breaks apart, physics no longer applies, and basically, everything blows into chaos and nothing makes sense. This theoretical point of madness is called the gravitational singularity.
Much like everything else about black holes, the gravitational singularity is a source of endless debate. One interesting theory is that if you, for some crazy reason, end up in this hellhole, you will be stretched and squeezed in different directions, infinitely—a process technically called (yes, technically) spaghettification.
“The gravity wants to sort of stretch you in one direction and squeeze you in another,” says Joe Polchinski, a physicist at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Since very little is known (much less definitively proven) about black holes, the floor is open to exploration of concepts beyond general relativity.
A team of researchers are trying to look at the singularity in an entirely different light. They propose that perhaps the gravitational singularity were an imperfection in the geometric structure of space-time, with geometric structures like that of a crystal or graphene.
“Just as crystals have imperfections in their microscopic structure, the central region of a black hole can be interpreted as an anomaly in space-time, which requires new geometric elements in order to be able to describe them more precisely. We explored all possible options, taking inspiration from facts observed in nature,” the team explains.
