Like part of a cosmic Russian doll, our universe may be nested inside a black hole that is itself part of a larger universe.
In  turn, all the black holes found so far in our universe—from the  microscopic to the supermassive—may be doorways into alternate  realities.
According to a mind-bending new theory, a  black hole is actually a tunnel between universes—a type of wormhole.  The matter the black hole attracts doesn’t collapse into a single point,  as has been predicted, but rather gushes out a “white hole” at the  other end of the black one, the theory goes.

In a recent paper published in the journal Physics Letters B, Indiana University physicist Nikodem Poplawski presents new mathematical models of the spiraling motion of matter  falling into a black hole. His equations suggest such wormholes are  viable alternatives to the “space-time singularities” that Albert  Einstein predicted to be at the centers of black holes.
