    Default Observation of White Holes - Small Bangs



    Observation of white hole?

    Interesting article Astronomy Without A Telescope – Small Bang


    There is a new group of γ-ray bursts, which are relatively close to Earth, but surprisingly lack any supernova emission. Authors propose identifying these bursts with white holes.

    GRB 060614 might have been a white hole. A white hole is a theoretical entity – and arguably just an artifact of the mathematics of general relativity. Assuming a black hole is an object from which nothing can escape – then its symmetrical opposite would be a white hole into which nothing can enter – but which can radiate light and from which matter can and does escape.

    Ops, white holes close to Earth? Now we need monitoring γ-ray bursts the same way as we monitoring near-Earth asteroids?

    Too much we don't know, and every time we think we know something, we find out we're wrong. Water on the Moon for example.
