NGC2403 - Northern Spiral Galaxy

The Earth is a beautiful place; the Universe, spectacular. Nothing could make whatever problems and worries you have, seem and feel less significant than the

Physicists Rodolfo Gambini and Jorge Pullin of University of the Republic in Montevideo, Uruguay, and Louisiana State University respectively, have applied the theory of Loop Quantum Gravity (LQG) to a simplified black hole. In so doing, as they describe in their paper published in the journal Physical Review Letters, they suggest that instead of a singularity existing at its center, there is a portal to another universe.

This artist's concept shows a galaxy with a supermassive black hole at its core. The black hole is shooting out jets of radio waves. New research led by theoretical astrophysicist David Garofalo of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif.

Supermassive Black Hole’s Dizzying Spin Is Half The Speed Of Light

Astronomers have used NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory and ESA’s XMM-Newton to show a supermassive black hole 6 billion light-years from Earth is spinning extremely rapidly.

Radio Signal from Space. Photo shows a thick dust torus that astronomers believe surrounds supermassive black holes and their accretion discs.

[The black hole] teaches us that space can be crumpled like a piece of paper into an infinitesimal dot, that time can be extinguished like a blown-out flame, and that the laws of physics that we regard as 'sacred,' as immutable, are anything but. ~~~ John Wheeler

This composite image of a galaxy illustrates how the intense gravity of a supermassive black hole can be tapped to generate immense power. The image contains X-ray data from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory (blue), optical light obtained with the.
