The uncertainty of science: Stephen Hawking, one of the world’s top experts on black holes, has written a paper stating there are no black holes.

At least, there is no such thing as an event horizon, meaning that black holes are not what scientists have believed.

    we need a time machine so that we can visit these areas in the cosmos, like black holes and star factory’s and other civilizations. The universe is so full of mystery.

    Super condensed matter is in itself, just That. As far as Time , we measure it with days or clocks expressing hours on our planet in relation to orbital position and rotational effect .

    Part of the problem is that we have confused science fiction with science (i.e. physics), and mixed in a pinch of the supernatural/supersition.

    I,too,enjoyed watching Yoda lift the Millenian Falcon out of the swamp, but I still don’t believe in ghosts, the yeti, UFO’s or magic healing crystals.

    Science (and the universe) sure does like to present us with mysteries. We have the mystery of the big bang (or however the universe began), the mystery of the big crunch (or however the universe ends), and now we have the mysterious black hole (which keeps being mysterious no matter how much we figure it out).

    That time machine idea of Joe’s is looking pretty good right now, but then again, we have the mystery of the time machine (is it possible, and how else do we explain some sub-atomic behaviors). *Sigh*

    Life sure was simpler when it was “turtles all the way down.”
