Black Hole Starships?

Posted by Ryan Anderson

Do you ever get tired of science fiction stories using black holes to solve every imaginable problem? (I’m looking at you, new Star Trek.) Well, if so, you should not go take a look at my inaugural article for Universe Today, in which I report on a couple of physicists who calculated that a future civilization might be able to create black holes and then use them as powerplants to launch interstellar voyages.

While you’re not looking at things that I wrote, you should also not go and vote for my MSL: Mars Action Hero article which compares MSL to James Bond. Voting is open until the 23rd and you could vote every day if you were going to go read the article and if you liked it. Just sayin’.
