Gravity bends more than just space. It bends time. The early results from Gravity Probe B, one of NASA’s most complicated satellites, confirmed ‘to a precision of better than 1 per cent’ the assertion Einstein made 90 years ago - that a massive object such as the Earth does indeed distort the fabric of space and time. This explains why GPS satellites must correct for time distortion: it passes more quickly in orbit than on the Earth.

New Telescope to Take First-Ever Black Hole Photo - A group of astronomers are meeting this week to plan out an ambitious and unprecedented project — capturing the first-ever image of a black hole. The researchers want to create an Earth-size virtual instrument called the Event Horizon Telescope, a worldwide network of radio telescopes powerful enough to snap a picture of the supermassive black hole at the heart of our Milky Way galaxy.

The Event Horizon of a black hole is a name we give to the region of spacetime beyond which anything that drops into it can never come back out. Not even light itself. This is contrasted by a white hole, which literally pushes you away by spitting material at you. Credit: NASA

Parallel universes - Black Hole connected to a theoretical White Hole. - If the theoretical science is correct, there are an infinite number of universes with same situations and different outcomes, do you believe?

Advances in quantum physics theory indicates there may be a Multiverse, at play. Instead of simply a Universe. This has been posited through mathematical equation and analysis.
