Black Hole Facts
Evan Pugh from Penn State in relation to black hole facts: “For example, general relativity predicts that there are places in the universe where gravity becomes infinite and space-time simply ends. We refer to these places as ‘singularities.’ But even Einstein agreed that this limitation of general relativity results from the fact that it ignores quantum mechanics.”

The physics that exist close to the center of a black hole are being made possible to examine using the theory called “loop quantum gravity”. The theory uses quantum mechanics to extend gravitational physics beyond Einstein’s theory of general relativity. It originated at Penn State and has been adopted […]
