Inside a Black Hole

Indiana University professor Nikodem Poplawski examined the motion of particles entering black holes and suggests something that seems a bit radical:

“Maybe the huge black holes at the centre of the Milky Way and other galaxies are bridges to different universes,” Poplawski says. If that is correct – and it’s a big “if” – there is nothing to rule out our universe itself being inside a black hole.

And yet, given the scope of the universe and the recent theories of how our universe was created that exclude the big bang altogether (paper link here as PDF), it wouldn’t surprise me in the least if our universe was just inside the center of a black hole.
