Researchers have created a molecular black hole in the lab

Physicists at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory in California have been able to create a “Molecular Black Hole” in the lab using X-Rays. The team has concentrated the full intensity of a powerful X-Ray laser in a single iodine molecule. The effect of this experiment was the formation of a microscopic black hole that devours everything around it. The instrument used to achieve the result was Coherent X-ray Imaging instrument. The...
