For all those people out there who are fascinated by science-fiction movies, the one topic which will intrigue you would be ‘Blackholes’.

What is a black hole?

A black hole is an area of spacetime where gravity is so intense that no electromagnetic wave, not even light, has the energy to escape.

“Black hole”

Can we travel through black hole?

The potential that black holes could serve as wormholes to other galaxies has been studied by scientists over the years. They might even be a gateway to another universe, as some have speculated.

Many think humans should just enter a black hole to unravel its mysteries. But there’s a fairly tricky catch: Only supermassive, solitary black holes allow for this.

The edge of a black hole is called the event horizon. It is called the point of no return or the exit door of the universe. The in-falling person would not be able to convey any information about their discoveries back out beyond the event horizon since nothing can escape the gravitational pull of the event horizon. The rest of the universe would never learn of their journey or discoveries.

Every black hole has a singularity at its center, which is a point of infinite density. A black hole’s singularity, where matter is compressed to an endlessly small point and all notions of time and space are entirely lost, is the metaphorical “no man’s land.”

It is what accounts for the powerful gravitational pull of black holes. Since everything that passed the event horizon would be annihilated by being stretched and tugged like an infinitesimally long piece of spaghetti, physicists believed that singularities were all the same for decades.

All of that, however, was altered in the early 1990s with the discovery of a second singularity known as a “mass inflation singularity” by various research teams from Canada and the US. Even though it still exerts a powerful gravitational force, passing through a black hole might not result in your death because it would only stretch you a limited distance. Specifically, by using a large, rotating black hole, which is where these types of singularities exist.

However, anything that is, in theory, needs to be proven but the possibility of being stretched to tiny particles is holding back scientists from further studying black holes.

Would you like to know more about Blackholes or possibly travel through it well if so then do let us know your findings.
