This month All About Space gets to the bottom of what happens when black holes turn white. It turns out that these mysterious, high-gravity objects have a penchant for exploding, becoming their exact opposites and, rather than ‘sucking’ everything in, they blow everything out. I am, of course, talking about the white hole, and it seems that they can reveal quite a bit about the nature of the fabric of space and time. Turn to page 16 for Colin Stuart’s full report on this incredible new breakthrough in research.
Elsewhere in the issue, All About Space’s Staff Writer Lee Cavendish digs deeper into the recent discovery of organics in the plumes shooting out from the surface of icy moon Enceladus, which orbits ringed giant Saturn. What does this mean for our hunt for life in our Solar System? What could this life be like? Do scientists think that we’ve finally struck gold?
If you’ve ever wondered where we’re at in our developments to travel faster than light, then look no further than this issue; we speak to the researchers who have considered everything from warp drives to wormholes in our efforts to beat the cosmic speed limit.
Lastly, we're starting to move into observing season, so there's plenty for you to get stuck into with our ultimate guide to the planets, nakedeye targets and deep-sky challenges.
Enjoy the issue!
