Now that would be some kind of invention, holographic Skyping...

Hi Julie,

I think the technology is actually there now to do it, if it was all pulled together. But it wouldn't be commercially viable for quite a few years yet. I imagine it is the face of the future though.

Aren't the computer games out now where you wear a glove with sensors and interact with images on a screen?

I think so and there's also the Displair, invented in Russia...

This is not really Black Hole related, but I just found this article, and it may explain Dark Energy. This is completely new information to me.

Supernova Remnant W49B


The highly distorted supernova remnant shown in this image may contain the most recent black hole formed in the Milky Way galaxy. The image combines X-rays from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory in blue and green, radio data from the NSF's Very Large Array in pink, and infrared data from Caltech's Palomar Observatory in yellow.

Black Holes Can Grow Surprisingly Fast, New 'Supermassive' Simulation Suggests


Giant black holes are famous for their appetites, but these matter-munching monsters are even greedier than scientists once thought, a new study suggests.

There are so many black holes in the Universe that it is impossible to count them.

Update:


‘Young’ black hole is nearby, NASA says; doorway to a new universe?


Asteroid 2012 DA14 is bearing down on Earth, rattling nerves and making sci-fi fans’ eyes light up. But the cool science news doesn’t stop there. Researchers believe they may have spotted the youngest black hole in the Milky Way galaxy, and — from scientists’ point of view – it’s not far away.

When it comes to black holes, it can be hard to differentiate the science from the science fiction. Remember Nikodem Poplawski’s 2010 theory — that our universe is within a black hole — which is within another universe altogether. That sounds like Disney’s 1979 film “The Black Hole.”

That was really interesting. The infinite density of mass aproaching the speed of light seems to be a black hole normal density. That is really an extreme rotation!

Johnny I think you should respect a man that does know this stuff Tullio and worked in the field and is now retired

“Our Galaxy’s black hole may be cooking its dinner right in front of Herschel’s eyes.”




Supermassive black hole feasts on hot gas for dinner


It’s not everyday that you get to see what’s on a black hole’s dinner menu. The European Space Agency’s Herschel space observatory has spotted hot molecular gas that may be circling or falling towards the supermassive black hole located at the center of our Milky Way galaxy.
