Black holes , which have remained a mystery since the day they were discovered , are considered one of the strangest formations in astronomy. In case of crossing the event horizon , which is a certain limit, it is almost impossible to closely examine black holes, which have the gravitational force that even light cannot escape . To circumvent this problem, a scientist at the Georgia Tech School of Physics has designed a robot that can travel around black holes.

The principles of the robot that studies black holes are based on Newton’s Laws and Einstein ‘s General Theory of Relativity . Working at the Geogia Institute of Technology, Dr. Faculty Member Zeb Rocklin claimed that they have built a robot that can move in inclined space without applying pressure to anything.

It Can Move Without Any Propulsion!

The researchers’ mainstay for the robot is that, contrary to popular belief, black holes are not a hole, as one might imagine, but actually have a spherical shape like planets in three-dimensional space. It is claimed that when certain conditions are met, travel on the spherical surface may be possible by reacting to the huge gravitational force of black holes. Adapting the action-reaction law , one of the most fundamental laws of the universe determined by Newton, for black holes, scientists allowed the robot to change shape after it entered orbit. A spindle was connected to the system to ensure that the robot could always move on a sphere. The shaft’s acceleration was also tuned to reset friction and Earth’s gravity.

In these experimental conditions, it was observed that the robot could move freely in an inclined space using the action-reaction law. The researchers state that this method can be easily applied in regions close to the event horizon of black holes, and one of these mysterious phenomena of the universe can be observed from the nearest seat. Such designs, which could move without any external force or propulsion, were called “Impossible Engines”. But in the new design, which uses the curved texture of space, it has indeed been proven that this is possible.
