‘Young’ black hole is nearby, NASA says; doorway to a new universe? Feb. 13, 2013 | 2:30 p.m. A supernova remnant may contain the most recent black hole formed in the Milky Way galaxy, according to NASA. (X-ray: NASA/CXC/MIT/L.Lopez et al; Infrared: Palomar; Radio: NSF/NRAO/VLA )

Asteroid 2012 DA14 is bearing down on Earth, rattling nerves and making sci-fi fans’ eyes light up. But the cool science news doesn’t stop there. Researchers believe they may have spotted the youngest black hole in the Milky Way galaxy, and — from scientists’ point of view – it’s not far away.

When it comes to black holes, it can be hard to differentiate the science from the science fiction. Remember Nikodem Poplawski’s 2010 theory — that our universe is within a black hole — which is within another universe altogether. That sounds like Disney’s 1979 film “The Black Hole.”

I am filled with hope and optimism at the thought of this brave new universe! Does Obama have a plan to push our planet into the black hole so that we can all experience the Change we deserve?

I think that all readers drawn to this thread had the exact same idea, but were working on a novel way to express themselves.

You done good!

Sounds racist to me. And smacks of pedophilia.

Ah come on. They do this stuff all the time on TV.

Maybe Hussein will spend $500 million to see if this can work. He’ll send some ambassador through first. Then tell us he did everything he could to save him.

Why not launch a few Islamaturds in there—see if they can find their 70 virgins.

I think we should send Secretary of State Kerry out to establish relations with the Islamic Republic of the Black Hole. Tell him there’s a medal in it.
