Massachusetts, US, Jan 11: According to new research, giant, rotating black holes would give interstellar travelers a smooth ride.
For years, Scientists have theories about black holes and can we use them as a portal for interdimensional travel. But there are always many questions in this area.
The most important question about this is “How could a hyperspace traveler ever approach a black hole without getting torn in pieces by black hole’s monstrous gravitational force?
But, with this new research, it turns out that, there are some black holes which are milder than other. According to new research of Univesity of Massachusetts Dartmouth physicist, if the black hole is sufficiently large and rotating quickly, the astronauts would have a nice and smooth ride the whole way down. This new research was published in Journal Physical Review D.
“One of the most cherished science fiction scenarios is using a black hole as a portal to another dimension or time or universe,” wrote Gaurav Khanna, a National Science Foundation-funded physicist who worked on the project, in a new essay published Wednesday by The Conversation. “That fantasy may be closer to reality than previously imagined.”
According to computer simulations, the singularity inside a giant and rapidly spinning black hole is weaker than the other black holes. In fact, its passengers may not even notice the force exercised by the black hole, long thought to obliterate anything that comes near, at all.
Further, Khanna added the hypothetical experiences to moving your hand through a candle’s flame. Fire is hot enough to melt your skin away if you leave it there to long, but you will only feel a fleeting warmth if you move it through quickly enough.
The jury is still out on whether hyperspace travel exists. But if anyone ever wanted to give it a shot, now they know where to aim.
