Black holes may be 'back doors' to universe

DEEP inside a black hole lies a region known as the gravitational singularity, where space-time curves toward infinity, and no matter passing through can survive – or so it’s been thought.

In a new study, researchers suggest there may instead be a way out through a wormhole at the center of the black hole, which acts as a ‘back door.’

By this theory, anything traveling through the black hole would be ‘spaghettified,’ or stretched to the extreme, but returned back to its normal size when it emerges in a different region of the universe.

Physicists from the Institute of…

Giant asteroid ‘Bennu’ may hit Earth

A GIANT asteroid could crash into the Earth in the next century and wipe out the human race.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is taking the threat seriously that it will soon launch a probe to prevent the future catastrophe from taking place.

Scientists say the giant asteroid called "Bennu" travels 63,000 miles per hour, weighs over 60 million tons and has the diameter of around 500 meters.

"Bennu" is larger than the Empire State building and has been compared to the destructive asteroid in the blockbuster Hollywood movie "Armageddon."

First discovered in 1999, “Bennu” has been…

Da Vinci's earliest notes on laws of friction found

SCRIBBLED pages in a notebook of Leonardo da Vinci, previously dismissed as nonsense, have been revealed as the polymath's earliest musings on the laws of friction.

Leonardo is widely considered the founder of tribology, a branch of mechanical engineering and materials science that deals with the principles of friction.

Now, scientists have a better understanding of when Leonardo first began to understand the laws of friction. In the years following these early scribbles, Leonardo would expand on the role of friction in engineering and the development of machines.

The significance of the scribbles was discovered by Ian Hutchings, a professor…

Mysterious purple orb baffles scientists

A MYSTERIOUS purple orb sucked off the sea bed during a live-streamed Nautilus exploration has stumped scientists, and naturally the internet too.

Inquisitive viewers of the YouTube video have made multiple guesses as to its origins, ranging from an “alien egg” to a brand new species of Pokemon. In fact it is more likely the bright orb, found by the Channel Islands of California, is a type of marine mollusk.

At least that is the current view of scientists who in all honesty are not completely sure, and it could take several years…

Cockroach Milk: Superfood of the Future?

AN INTERNATIONAL team of scientists has just sequenced a protein crystal located in the midgut of cockroaches. The reason?

It’s more than four times as nutritious as cow’s milk and, the researchers think it could be the key to feeding our growing population in the future.

Although most cockroaches don’t actually produce milk, Diploptera punctate, which is the only known cockroach to give birth to live young, has been shown to pump out a type of ‘milk’ containing protein crystals to feed its babies.

The fact that an insect produces milk is pretty fascinating – but what fascinated researchers is…
