Eikös näiden mustien aukkojen synnyttäminen maassa pitänyt olla mahdotonta?
IMAGINE being able to peek inside a black hole and even perform experiments there. It may not be as far-fetched as it sounds...
Cosmologists have already worked out exactly how light should change frequency as it approaches an event horizon – from the outside or the inside of a black hole – and sure enough, the team observed exactly these shifts in their experiment.
Ray Rivers at Imperial College London is impressed by the work’s potential to test astrophysical phenomena: “They’ve done some clever stuff to give us a chance of seeing Hawking radiation for the first time.” Leonhardt presented the results at the Cosmology Meets Condensed Matter meeting in London last month.
