Helium Experiments Open Door to Black Hole Insights

Scientists have created a giant vortex within superfluid helium, termed the "quantum tornado," which mimics the gravitational forces of black holes. This experiment, a collaboration among the University of Nottingham, King’s College London, and Newcastle University, has allowed for an unprecedented exploration of black hole dynamics by observing how tiny waves interact with the vortex in superfluid helium. The success of this experiment offers a novel method to study the complex phenomena surrounding black holes, enhancing our understanding of the universe through the lens of quantum physics and general relativity.
