Have you ever felt concerned about being eaten by a black hole, what about a mini black hole? From the dawn of time, the cosmos has been swarming with mini black holes. Each of them has been dashing through the universe like bullets.
What’s extraordinary is some weigh almost equal to the Earth’s moon, while others weigh as much as an asteroid. There are others that are so small they seem like the period in a sentence. Many consider these are all tall tales, but the fact of the matter is they hit the earth every 1,000 years.
The Destiny of Some Mini Black Holes
Some researchers consider that mini black holes that are smaller than asteroids are meant to be vaporized. The key reason for this is because of Hawking radiation, which Stephen Hawking inferred in 1974 as the result of the laws of nature. This leads us to think about the remaining mini black holes and what they mean for our planet.
Would We Know It’s Happening?
Since the small size of mini black holes and the point that they’re striking Earth once every millennium, they’re extremely hard to detect. That being said, there’s no reason to worry or human destruction. Though, if a black hole with an asteroid base size were to hit, then that would cause turbulences with satellites and GPS tracking devices. Both instances, however, wouldn’t cause too much of a problem.
Do We Have Anything to Worry About?
Researchers don’t believe a catastrophic event is going to happen within our lifetime. They’re forecasting it will be much longer than the age of the Cosmos before a black hole will pass between the Earth and the Sun. Those events will cause chaos and death, but they’re also ridiculously improbable. The only thing researchers are worried about is what these mini black holes mean scientifically.
Investigation carries on on the mini black holes, as well as how they’re hitting Earth and what kind of influence they’ll have on the planet if any. Researchers are also looking at what black holes with a greater mass, like the size of a golf ball, will do if they hit the earth.
