They Made A Universe Smaller Than A Marble !

black hole amazing pictures
At Lancaster University, they’re unraveling the secrets of how to build a universe. In fact, they have already formed one, or something very much like it. This scientific breakthrough lies in the bottom of a chamber no larger than your pinky finger, filled with helium and cooled to 0.0003 degrees Fahrenheit above absolute zero.

By placing helium in a state which most closely resembles the form it held at the beginning of the universe, scientists have created an opportunity for the gas to go through several low-energy evolutions. These defects in space-time, are represented by tiny whirlpools in the helium, which are created by the rapid expansion, and equally rapid slowing of the expansion; something that it’s believed our own universe did at the big bang and in the moments thereafter.

Now this is all good and well, and I'm no expert on such matters, but I do know that the universe contains billions of galaxies and EVERY galaxy contains one or more black holes.

A black hole is not a thing to be messing around with.

If you or I were being pulled toward a black hole the gravitational pull from it is so strong it would draw us out until we were a string of single atoms. In fact, the gravitational power of a black hole is so strong, it will actually compact matter so tightly to the point where material with the same weight as the earth would sit nicely on a tea spoon.

So these scientists performing these experiments could conceivably create a black hole in a lab and what then ?

A black hole even as small as a marble could suck in a city the size of London, never mind Lancaster and compress it down to nothing.

I hope they know what they are doing !!!
