article imageApproaching Event Horizon In The Lab?

By Mark L Harvey     Mar 8, 2008 in Science
Scientists have discovered the means of which to create a Black Hole. In a laboratory at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, one of the greatest mysteries of the universe may soon be solved.
Ulf Leonhardt, a theoretical physicist, studied the properties of Black Holes and the creation of the artificial Black Hole is merely a stepping stone to confirm or dispel the enigma. In the never ending quest to discover all there is to know, scientists toy with fate and experiment with the unknowns to either confirm or deny that which we think we might or might not know.
The theory is that Black Holes have such a strong gravitational pull that even light cannot escape from a theoretical border defined as the event horizon. But what does it matter to us as mere mortals and what will the benefits to mankind be, creating artificial event horizons?
Solving mysteries concerning black holes could yield key clues toward a "theory of everything" that unites how we conceive of all the natural forces.
The research of Black Holes is not as dangerous as one might perceive seeing that the experiments are artificially induced in a controlled environment.
