Imitation Black Hole Seen On Earth


WASHINGTON (ISNS) — Astrophysics deals mostly with things that are so distant — thousands or billions of light years away — that we can't ever hope to see them up close. But clever scientists can do the next best thing to making a light-year journey; they can recreate some of the celestial occurrences in a lab. In effect, they can bring parts of the sky down here to earth.

That's what physicists in Italy have done. Using nothing more than lasers, a sample of pure glass, and sensitive detectors they have created a miniature environment that mimics the conditions of a black hole.
