Are black holes links to other universes? Is this the multiverse?

Thursday, 15 April, 2010

A new theory states that black holes, rather than being conduits to other parts of the galaxy or universe (assuming we could stay in one piece if travelling through them), may instead be portals to entirely different universes.

According to a mind-bending new theory, a black hole is actually a tunnel between universes – a type of wormhole. The matter the black hole attracts doesn’t collapse into a single point, as has been predicted, but rather gushes out a “white hole” at the other end of the black one, the theory goes.
