2007 Satellite could open door to extra dimension

An exotic theory, which attempts to unify the laws of physics by proposing the existence of an extra fourth spatial dimension, could be tested using a satellite to be launched in 2007.

Such theories are notoriously difficult to test. But a new study suggests that such hidden dimensions could give rise to thousands of mini-black holes within our own solar system – and the theory could be tested within Pluto’s orbit in just a few years.

Black holes of various masses are thought to have sprung into existence within 1 second of the big bang, as elementary particles clumped together at extreme energies. But Einstein's theory of general relativity predicts the smallest of these "primordial" black holes should have already evaporated, through a quantum process called Hawking radiation.

But according to some alternative theories that attempt to unify gravity with quantum mechanics, such as string theory, small black holes could still exist. That is because these theories propose extra spatial dimensions, which alter the way gravity behaves on small scales. The theory of general relativity holds that there are three spatial dimensions plus time.

"That [extra spatial dimension] changes the rate at which black holes radiate, so you can slow down the evaporation quite substantially," says Charles Keeton, a physicist at Rutgers University in New Jersey, US.

thats too long to wait! its alot of theories but what if it works! we could be shaking hands with et in 3 years.

what do you think

It's a theorie that definately deserves testing, and I'm glad to see it
is being tested.

Though I'm curious, why do you think this would lead to the contact
between ourselves and an extra-terrestrial species in less than a
decade?

im sure the scientists will find a way to use the satellite to communicate or send messages, should any contact be made.

Ok, I just want to make sure I'm understanding what your saying.

You think that another civilisation may use extra-dimensional
space as a communications network?

That is actually very plausable.

yup. we are on the same page. hopefully the theory works!

You don't know just how right you are with that last sentence
