Thumbnail photo represents "Exiting the white hole into a new Universe, which appears as an infinitely blueshifted, infinitely bright, point at the center of the black disk. We see the entire history of the new Universe in the point. The noise texture continues to show how gas accreting on to the black hole in our original Universe would appear lensed and redshifted."

In January 2017, NASA announced a 188 million dollar... mission explore the most exotic objects in the universe. This mission launches in 2020, and one of its priorities is to investigate black holes, as these peculiar entities still hold a great deal of intrigue for astrophysicists. The first question everyone asks regarding Black Holes is "what happens inside them?" Do not google this question. I repeat, do not ever type the words "Are Black Holes hairy" into a search engine.The idea that nothing can escape a black hole is based on the fact that it is impossible to resist their gravity once you're inside one. The leading theory regarding our universe's formation is the Big Bang. How this event took place and why it kicked off we don't know, but one theory says it could have been caused by a gigantic black hole.
