What is the ultimate catastrophe of the universe? What happens when gravity seizes control of matter and runs off to infinity? Regions of the universe exist where gravity is so strong that it overwhelms all physical laws and structures. New and far-reaching discoveries show that uncontrolled gravity can twist space and time into destruction at so-called singularities. A singularity is a weird non-place where spacetime is ripped open and matter may enter or leave the physical universe. Singularities lie at the centres of black holes and mark the creation and destruction of the universe. At a singularity, gravitational forces can become infinite. On the edge of infinity, bizarre effects occur —- time is reversed, cause and effect break down, and matter is totally annihilated. Most disturbing of all is a naked singularity —- a singularity unclothed by a black hole and capable of destroying the orderly, predictable operation of the entire cosmos. Here is an entity not subject to any known laws, and representing the threshold to a strange new physical world.… (lisätietoja)
