Many people are familiar with black holes, a 3-D hole that alters time and space where not even light can escape. However, what do we know about white holes?
Well, as your might suspect, white holes are the exact opposite of black holes. They expel matter into space at intense speeds with immense energy. Some cosmologists believe that on the other side of a black hole is a white hole. An interesting point that may either excite or disappoint you is that white holes cannot be entered from the outside. This means that there may never be physical proof of a white hole.
Nevertheless, there was a paper written in 2012 that argued that the Big Bang was a white hole itself. Unlike black holes, white holes cannot be observed continuously and can only be observed at the time of the event. It also connects a new class called y-ray bursts to white holes. If you would like to read more about white holes check out this interesting paper on the subject: http://arxiv.org/pdf/1105.2776v2.pdf
Hopefully one day we can learn more about white holes and the mysteries they hold. The universe is fascinating and has many secrets that are just waiting to be unlocked. The question is, as Neil deGrasse Tyson put it, “How much would you pay for the Universe?”
NASA’s budget is less than half a penny on your tax dollar. Imagine the mysteries of the Cosmos that we could solve with a full penny. Write Congress and tell them to increase NASA’s budget. Take action today: http://www.penny4nasa.org/take-action/
