When material touches surface black hole, it becomes near-perfect copy of itself: Study
In a paper posted online to the arXiv preprint server, a physics professor of Ohio State University took proved mathematically that black holes are not necessarily arbiters of doom.
Samir Mathur claims the firewall theory has loophole and black holes create holograms rather than being ruthless killers. He mentioned that world could be captured by a black hole and people wouldn't even notice.
Samir Mathur, professor of physics at The Ohio State University, said they are actually tangled-up balls of cosmic string and are absolutory normal.
According to him, if Earth was sucked into a black hole, humans would not even notice as it would become a hologram copy and continue to exist.
However, when a group of researchers recently tried to build on Mathur's theory, they concluded that the surface of the fuzzball was actually a firewall.
According to the firewall theory, the surface of the fuzzball is deadly. However, Mathur and his team have come to a completely different conclusion, which states that black holes not as killers, but rather as benign copy machines of a sort.
The team mentioned that when material touches the surface of a black hole, it becomes a hologram, a near-perfect copy of itself that continues to exist just as before.
There is a hypothesis in physics called complementarity, which requires that any such hologram created by a black hole be a perfect copy of the original. The theory was first proposed by Stanford University physicist Leonard Susskind in 1993.
Mathur's research team has developed a modified model of complementarity, in which they assume an imperfect hologram forms.
