Even as i start writing, i was thinking if i should categorize this under Weird Science ’cause this ain’t weird; It is mindblowing !

Ok before i give the actual jolt, here is a smooth intro to the whole thing ! It has not been a long time since i saw Spiderman 2, where the guy ends up creating a Fusion reactor, in mid-air ( Yeah sure ! Tell me about it !). But the beauty is that this reaction gets uncontrollable ( no surprises there ) and starts sucking in metal objects due to the increase in gravitational force as it gains mass. Well alright makes sense. But wait a minute, are you saying that you created a Black Hole right here on earth ? WTF ?!?!

Ahem, i think it is impossible. Or so i thought until i read a news article today, that states : Lab fireball ‘may be black hole’. Got very curious and started reading about it. It is actually quite interesting but way out of my league in terms of understanding the whole theory.

Here is the abstract and the actual paper which talks about this in detail). So someday, in the future, when i know enough about what i am dealing with, i will, hopefully, come here and read about it. And here is an excerpt of the article.

A fireball created in a US particle accelerator has the characteristics of a black hole, a physicist has said. It was generated at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) in New York, US, which smashes beams of gold nuclei together at near light speeds. Horatiu Nastase says his calculations show that the core of the fireball has a striking similarity to a black hole.The Brown researcher thinks the particles are disappearing into the fireball’s core and reappearing as thermal radiation, just as matter is thought to fall into a black hole and come out as “Hawking” radiation.

Awesome. Can’t say how cool this is !
