WE COULD be living inside a black hole. This head-spinning idea is one cosmologist's conclusion based on a modification of Einstein's equations of general relativity that changes our picture of what happens at the core of a black hole.

In an analysis of the motion of particles entering a black hole, published in March, Nikodem Poplawski of Indiana University in Bloomington showed that inside each black hole there could exist another universe (Physics Letters B, DOI: 10.1016/j.physletb.2010.03.029). "Maybe the huge black holes at the centre of the Milky Way and other galaxies are bridges to different universes," Poplawski says. If that is correct - and it's a big "if" - there is nothing to rule out our universe itself being inside a black hole.

It's unverified as the rest of the article will tell you but if it was verified: Mind = blown. Thougts?

Has anyone ever attampted to go inside a black hole?I'd volunteer to do that.

The me in the black hole keeping this galaxy together already told me about this.

Seriously though, old news. Granted I have a family member who's life revolves around space, so I probably hear all this crap before most people, but I think it was on Through The Wormhole too.

A blackhole is an inter dimensional portal that leads into nothing. basically you die. You must be thinking of a worm hole?

Nah, I think they're too far away to even try. But if some did try, they would be crushed to death before even inside the black hole.

Honestly not really surprised. It's a little less strange than some of those other multiverse theories.

I dont even try to comprehend this stuff. I just go, "Oh okay Mr. Hawking."
My feelings towards them are inevitably a mix of confusion, acceptance that i'll never get it, and annoyance that the worlds greatest minds are thinking about stuff that doesnt directly help me. Those selfish bastards.

This is news to me. I've never heard it before. That's a really interesting thought. I just hope I live to see the day that all the secrets of space are discovered and time and/or space travel becomes realistic. Probably extremely unlikely. We're a ways away from doing all of that.

A blackhole is like a huge sun, It has its own gravitational system except instead of keeping balance, it pulls you in. Theory suggests the sun with implode with an impact so huge, it will turn into a dead star (blackhole) and suck everything into nothing in the solar system. Basically if your in the blackholes gravitational system, there is no chance of escape.

Too far to reach until we can utilise black holes to initiate warp speed. We need to implode the sun.

dude ive been thinking this for a while now. not so much a universe but something. light is gone so we cant tell whats in there, nor has anyone ever been there to try. i think something has to be in there.

So we need to move to a different universe in order to reach the black hole?
That sucks.

Actually the sun will expand into a Red giant (engulfing Earth) and then into a white dwarf. Also a black hole will not 'suck' in a planet unless it passes a certain point (the event horizon).

i love how you use the sun as if its so big. black holes can be up to 10^9 the mass of the sun. and also you can escape the gravitational pull of a black hole. if you come at the right angle you can use the pull of the black hole to stay in orbit for years and even exit the gravitational field.

This. Which scientists concluded won't happen for about another 5 billion years.

Sorry, I really don't know where you've been reading about physics, but I suggest you find a different source.

Yep.

Maybe there are a couple, but most people on here who act like they know what they're talking about really don't.

I'm not going to pretend I know much about the subject... just a little. Enough to know whether what I'm reading is total bollocks, at least.
