Q is for Quasars

The Letter QQuasar stands for Quasi Stellar Radio Source. It’s an extremely powerful energy source that arises from matter interacting with the gravitational fields of supermassive black holes at the center of galaxies located at tremendous distances from our Milky Way galaxy.

While looking into quasars, I came across an interesting, if completely scientifically-incorrect, theory about quasars and black holes.

Doug Yurchey postulated that a quasar is the other end of a black hole. Light, energy, and matter are pulled into a black hole and ejected at the other end of the “tunnel” through a quasar into a micro-universe.

Naturally, that does not happen and could not happen. But imagine if it could. Imagine if black holes were the way to travel to other universes.

My Idea:

After the true nature of black holes and quasars are discovered, an exploration team is sent through a black hole. They have to deal with the physical realities of black hole travel, the rough exit from the quasar, as well as the knowledge that this is a one-way trip. And they can’t anticipate what they find on the other side.

What story would you write about black holes and quasars?
