Scientists simulate a black hole in a water tank

Publicado em 08 fevereiro 2019
Certain phenomena that occur in black holes but cannot be directly observed in astronomic investigations can be studied by means of a laboratory simulation. This is possible due to a peculiar analogy between processes that are characteristic of black holes and hydrodynamic processes. The common denominator is the similarity of wave propagation in both cases. This possibility is explored in a new article published in Physical Review Letters. Physicist Mauricio Richartz, a professor at the [...]
