The universe can be a crazy place. As space.com reports, black holes could seem to mirror the galaxy, where each picture is more distorted than the other.
Quote: “Imagine a galaxy reflected in a fun house hall of mirrors. You’d see the galaxy, repeated again and again, with each image becoming more grotesque and distorted. That’s how the universe looks near the event horizon of a black hole, one of the most warped places in the cosmos. While physicists had some previous ideas about what such regions looked like, a new calculation has shown exactly what you would see around black holes, opening up potential new ways to test Einstein’s theory of general relativity.”
The more we learn about black holes, the more mysterious they get and always open up new questions for physicists to keep them busy for years to come.
