New Study Suggests Wormholes May be Viable Shortcuts through Space-time After All

“The simplest way to construct a wormhole is to “extend” the idea of a black hole with its mirror image, the white hole.” by Paul Sutter via Live Science Headline Image Caption/Credit: An artist’s impression of the inside of a wormhole. (Image credit: Shutterstock) Wormholes, or portals between black holes, may be stable after all, a wild new theory suggests. … Continue reading

An Observed ‘Mini Big Bang’ in Space Could Disprove Einstein

Astrophysicists have detected a massive cluster of galaxies millions of light-years wide is hurtling through space at velocities so high that modern physics can’t explain their motion. The galaxies are all part of the Local Group, a ring of galaxies which contain the Milky Way and Andromeda galaxies at the center. Andromeda, our closest neighbor, is predicted to collide with … Continue reading

Quantum Theory of “Spooky Action at a Distance” Confirmed by Experiment

Quantum physics is just weird. One of the strangest behaviors studied by this out-there branch of science is called quantum entanglement and is enough to make your head hurt. Quantum entanglement involves two subatomic particles which could be any theoretical distance apart, yet share some type of mysterious connection which makes measuring or even just observing any one of the … Continue reading

Gravitational Waves Detected for 1st Time, ‘Opens a Brand New Window on the Universe’

Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity proven right 100 years later In the Headline Picture Above, Markarian 231, a binary black hole found in the center of the nearest quasar host galaxy to Earth, is seen in a NASA illustration. Researchers have detected gravitational waves coming from two black holes that orbited one another, spiralled inward and smashed together. (NASA/Reuters) … Continue reading
