[Yahoo] Mini Black Holes Easier To Make Than Thought

post #1 of 11

So far, researchers have detected no black holes at the Large Hadron Collider. Still, theoretical interest in this possibility remains alive. Now, using supercomputers, researchers simulating collisions among particles zipping near the speed of light have shown that black holes could form at lower energies than previously thought.
This new discovery is rooted in Einstein's theory of relativity. First, through his famous equation E = mc2, Einstein revealed that mass and energy are related. This means the greater the energy of a particle — say, the faster a particle gets accelerated in a collider — the greater its mass becomes.
Next, Einstein's theory explains that mass curves the fabric of space and time, generating the phenomenon known as gravity. As particles zip along within particle colliders, they warp space-timeand can focus energy much as glass lenses focus light.

As frightening as black holes might seem, if particle accelerators on Earth can generate them, such infinitesimal entities pose no risk to the planet.

Very interesting. Speed of light, if possible to achieve, is still too slow but gravity engines such as the warp drive that bend the very fabric of space itself are, theoretically, far more viable. This could very well lead to such engines, would be exciting.

No it couldn't. Although you have one necessary component, contracting space in the front, you're missing something that modern physics hasn't even come close to understanding--dark energy. Expanding space with dark energy behind the ship is a technical challenge far more complicated than shrinking space in the front of the ship with a black hole, which is still ridiculously challenging, and flat out impossible with our current technology. And we don't even know that these microblack holes exist in the real world. These are super computer simulations, and although the can be accurate, they seldom are when it comes to unknown physics and speculated higher dimensions. This isn't even the first milestone to the warp drive. Anyways, warp drive might very well be impossible if there is no way to harness dark energy.

We already have the nuclear bomb, we don't need a black hole bomb, lol

How can we prove there are other dimensions? We can only extrapolate with experimental results and try to link conclusions from different fields to say: "hey we both conclude the same thing with two different experimentation, we should be right."

While it reduces the risk of a theory being wrong, it does not validate it with certitude => theory stuck to the technology level of the civilization. We might never be able to prove there are other dimensions. String theory is dating and nobody has advanced anything conclusive since what? the 70's? lachen.gif

I do think there are multiple dimensions but only because it is so much more convenient to "understand" phenomenons like quantum entanglement. Something theorist seem to be tempted to do as everything seem easier to explain with other dimensions.

Methinks a black hole is simply a hole in the 4th wall, and secretly, we're all being spied on by ponies behind TV sets.

/conspiracy theory


Although my brain doesn't quite grasp this sort of thing, it's awesome to read about. Just makes you realize how much we, as a species, have yet to learn.

It does scare me when they talk about hypothetical issues that do not have 100% backing, proof - it will all come out in the wash in the end, is a saying.

Mankind will be washed out one day by its own hand! redface.gif
