    If you're waiting to exact revenge on your ancestors you time might just be coming! Scientists over at CERN have succeeded in creating a black hole here on Earth! 


    Well, kinda. What they have managed to do is mimic the curvature of space time that exists around a black hole. This "black hole" which works for light of microwave frequencies mimics the the nature of black holes to trap light. 


    A black hole is essentially a mass which is so large and condensed, and with such a large gravit...

    Hmm . .is it from the LHC? 'coz a read a paper on the same which predicted that black holes created out of collisions of protons last less than a millionth of a second and are less than useless in terms of destructive capabilities . .
