Cosmic Jet

Black holes are by now familiar objects, astonishing as they are. But some scientists speculate that a black hole is a passageway to another universe or another part of this universe. At the other end of the tunnel, material sucked in by the black hole spews out into space as a "white hole," or a cosmic jet of high-energy plasma and excited particles. This astronomical fantasy depicts what a "white hole" might look like. No one has yet detected something which could be identified as a white hole. At least, no one on this planet has detected it.

"White Hole" is acrylic on illustration board, 10" x 7", January 1998.
