White Holes

We know there are Black holes. And we think that there might be Worm holes.

Now we think that there might be White holes. Yes While holes!


White holes are basically the opposite to Black holes, however while we can detect Black holes now, we cannot detect White holes, however in the same way Black holes used to be a theory, White holes are currently a theory, and could one day be confirmed. Here is the theory as of now.


The theory goes that White holes have the same function as Black holes, only in the reverse.

Upon the discovery of the Black hole, the theory now goes that through study it could be mathematically possible for White holes to exist. It’s the opposite of a Black hole. Well theoretically.

So if Black holes are ‘Inward’ gravitational pulling, then White holes are ‘Outward’ gravitational pushing.  

In simple terms, Newtons 3rd law of motion states that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction, and we can relate this to White holes based on Black holes.

So really when a Black hole is formed on the collapse of a star, a White hole ‘should’ be formed. Will be ever know or proof this, who knows. Let’s see. !

  1. watch voltron and you might have a idea or picture in your head what a white hole is or maybe watch it a couple times like I did
