British scientists to simulate conditions around a black hole using light


Recommended Posts

Apologies for the long title, but I didn't want it to be misleading. Scientists in Scotland will attempt to use light to simulate the conditions around a black hole using light, as part of a research scheme to see how energy and matter interact.

Some articles on the matter:

Just thought it would interest people here.

We're not actually going to die, are we?

Ack. Opening links in spoiled tags appears to be rather impossible with Safari on iOS. If you just post the raw URL, the forum will automatically parse it, hyperlink it, and truncate the text so it isn't unwieldy.
