What If? 22 Crazy Hypothetical Questions (and their Answers)

If you were to take a step into a small black hole, your body would most closely resemble toothpaste being extruded out of the tube. Tidal forces are so strong at a black hole's threshold (called the "event horizon") that they would stretch your body into a string of atoms as you fell into the abyss. But if you fell into a somewhat larger black hole with less extreme tides, you could maintain your internal structure. Einstein's theory of time dilation suggests that if you looked forward…

Black hole? Or wormhole in disguise? | CosmOnline

In August of 2007, astronomers located a gigantic hole in the universe. This empty space, stretching nearly a billion light-years across, is devoid of any matter such as galaxies, stars, and gas, and neither does it contain the strange and mysterious dark matter, which can be detected but not seen. The large void in the Constellation Eridanus appears to be improbable given current cosmological models. A radical and controversial theory proposes that it is a "universe-in-mass black hole"

The Event Horizon of a black hole is a name we give to the region of spacetime beyond which anything that drops into it can never come back out. Not even light itself. This is contrasted by a white hole, which literally pushes you away by spitting material at you. Credit: NASA

Monster black hole is the largest and brightest ever found

An artist's illustration of the black hole at the heart of a quasar in the distant universe. The biggest black hole known to exist lives in the nearby galaxy M87. It's 2,000 times bigger than the Milky Way's supermassive black hole.

A recent study suggests that each black hole contains another entire universe! According to the new equations, the matter black holes absorb and seemingly destroy is actually expelled and becomes the building blocks for galaxies, stars, and planets in another reality. Essentially, every black hole contains a smaller alternate universe. And our universe might just exist inside a black hole of a galaxy in a much larger universe.

"Quantum Entanglement" involves a theory where entanglement of various particles is used in quantum mechanics and creation of quantum computers. The theory is that electrons which are separated by light years can interact via a process known as tunneling and entangle although they have no meants of communciations short of violating the laws of the speed of light. How is such a thing possible? In quantum physics the electrons are actually colocated or sharing part of a quantum black hole or…
