Black Holes Might Have Back Doors

Black Holes Might Have Back Doors

A new research has suggested that there is possibility that black holes might have back doors that lead out to other regions of the universe. But, the researchers have also raised doubtfulness over any object managing to pass alive through one of the exits. The enormous gravity of the black hole will spaghettify the object, which will get stretched out of a string of pasta.

After the object manages to get out of the black hole through the alleged door, it will again get compressed back to its actual size. However, it cannot be assured whether the life of the object will get revived. Black holes have been categorized as places that crush the object with its gravity to such a density that the usual laws of physics cannot be applied in their case.

The new research discards the previous outlook of scientists that at the central point of a black hole, spacetime bends into an endless point that is referred to as singularity and subsequently all the objects and matter gets shattered. The new hypothesis suggests that the central point of the simplest form of electrically charged, non-rotating black hole, is in the form of a extremely tiny spherical surface.

This surface plays the role of a ‘wromhole’, an exit door or a tunnel passing via the fabric of spacetime appearing something like what is shown in numerous sci-fi stories. For example, the movie Interstellar depicted a team of astronauts passing via a wormhole to find a new potential home for humankind.

“Our theory naturally resolves several problems in the interpretation of electrically-charged black holes. In the first instance, we resolve the problem of the singularity, since there is a door at the centre of the black hole, the wormhole, through which space and time can continue”, said Dr. Gonzalo Olmo from the University of Valencia in Spain.

A report published in Astronomy Now revealed, "A recent study by researchers at the Institute of Corpuscular Physics (IFIC, CSIC-UV) in Valencia suggests that matter might in fact survive its foray into these space objects and come out the other side."

“Black holes are a theoretical laboratory for trying out new ideas about gravity,” says Gonzalo Olmo, a Ramón y Cajal grant researcher at the Universitat de València (University of Valencia, UV). Alongside Diego Rubiera, from the University of Lisbon, and Antonio Sánchez, PhD student also at the UV, Olmo’s research sees him analysing black holes using theories besides general relativity (GR).

This study is based on one of the simplest known types of black hole, rotationless and electrically-charged. The wormhole predicted by the equations is smaller than an atomic nucleus, but gets bigger the bigger the charge stored in the black hole. So, a hypothetical traveller entering a black hole of this kind would be stretched to the extreme, or “spaghettified,” and would be able to enter the wormhole. Upon exiting they would be compacted back to their normal size.

According to a report in Daily Record by Jon Von-Radowitz, "A NEW study has claimed black holes could be "back doors" to other regions of the universe. However, scientists say it is unlikely anyone passing through one of the gateways would survive."

Once on the other side of the "door" the traveller would be compacted back to normal size, but could not count on being restored back to life. Black holes are places where matter has been squashed to such a density by gravity that the normal laws of physics break down.

Instead, it proposes that the heart of the simplest type of electrically charged, non-rotating black hole, is a very small spherical surface. This acts as a "wormhole" - a doorway or tunnel through the fabric of spacetime of the kind seen in countless sci-fi stories.
