Black Hole Space Warp
Black holes are objects so massive and compact that nothing can escape from them, including light. They distort the spacetime around them, somewhat like a heavy ball on a stretchy rubber sheet, as this conceptual illustration shows

Artwork conceptualising the idea of quantum foam - a description of subatomic spacetime turbulence at distances on the order of the Planck length. On these scales, the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle dictates that particles and antiparticles can com...

This is a conceptual representation of the Big Bang that theoretically created space and time 13.7 billion years ago. The image is inaccurate in that the Big Bang was an 'explosion' of space, not in space, so it would not have been possible to regard...

This is a conceptual representation of the baby universes idea: where our Universe is linked to an infinite number of others via bridges called wormholes, and each of these other universes is itself linked to others.

This is a conceptual representation of the eternal inflation theory – infinite bubble universes emerging constantly in inflationary space. Each separate universe will have its own physical laws, which may not be anything like those in our universe,...

Binary Black Hole Merger
Illustration of two black holes orbiting each other in a combined accretion disc. Eventually the black holes will merge, an event that will produce gravitational waves. Gravitational waves are a prediction of Einstein's theory of...
Keywords: black hole, binary, gravitational waves
Illustration of two black holes orbiting each other, emitting gravitational waves. Gravitational waves are a prediction of Einstein's theory of general relativity. Gravity is the distortion of spacetime by mass, and changes in this distortion travel ...

This is a conceptual illustration of a wormhole. These are hypothetical tunnels through spacetime that permit you to travel from A to B faster than light would go if light took the long route. They might also be used for time travel. If they actually...
