One day we might fall into a black hole. Here’s what we can expect, according to physicist Janna Levin.
Black holes should be thought of as "empty places" rather than "dense objects." While they are indeed formed from incredibly dense objects (collapsed stars), the black hole itself is nothing. Black holes could have played a crucial role in the emergence of life. Ironically, the Solar System is in orbit around a supermassive black hole located in the center of our Milky Way galaxy. And one day, we might fall into a black hole. If you were out in space exploring and you didn't realize you were coming upon a black hole, you would not notice that anything terrible was about to happen. Eventually, however, you would succumb to a terrifying fate.

The very word "quantum" makes people's imaginations run wild. But chances are you've fallen for at least one of these myths.
There are many big questions to be curious about, and one of the most fascinating is this: What makes…
So-called “higher symmetries” are illuminating everything from particle decays to the behavior of complex quantum systems.
“Why are you unhappy? Because 99.9 percent of everything you think, and of everything you do, is for yourself — and there isn’t one.”
The first step towards an ontological comprehension of physics consists in the rediscovery of what we term the corporeal domain, which is basically the perceptible, beginning with the visual.
