MINI BLACK HOLES PASS THROUGH THE EARTH EVERY DAY

Like cosmic ghosts, miniature black holes smaller than an atom may be passing through the Earth on a daily basis, a new study suggests. The new theory rebutts doomsday scenarios in which powerful atom- smashing machines such as the Large Hadron Collider could spawn black holes that swallow the planet. Instead, the authors of this study think that miniscule black holes would behave very differently from their larger brethren found in deep space called astrophysical or stellar-mass black holes. A mini black hole would have the mass of a thousand automobiles. At that size the black hole wouldn't swallow much matter and would mostly trap atoms and some larger molecules into circular orbits- in much the same way that protons in atoms capture and bind electrons. The study therefore call mini black holes with orbiting material Gravitational Equivalents of an Atom or GEA'S. GEA'S would not cause any damage to you. Stellar-mass black holes are thought to form when massive dying stars collapse, leaving stellar corpses that are so dense not even light can escape their gravitational pull. Scientists think multiple stellar-mass black holes can merge to form supermassive black holes, which are found in the centers of large galaxies, including our own Milky Way. Meanwhile, the theory predicts that an abundance of mini black holes were created shortly after the beginning of the universe, as very dense matter was expanding and cooling. It has been calculated that it would take much longer than the age of the universe for a mini black hole to swallow all the atoms that make up the Earth.
