Very short gamma-ray bursts linked to evaporation of primordial black holesNovember 4th, 2010 - 6:47 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Nov 4 (ANI): Scientists have found evidence that very short gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) may be associated with the evaporation of primordial black holes, as originally proposed by cosmologist Stephen Hawking.
A team of scientists led by University of California, Los Angeles Professor David B. Cline have studied gamma-ray bursts with durations less than 100 milliseconds, known as very short gamma-ray bursts, orVSGRBs.
These bursts were detected by several different experiments, including the Burst and Transient Source Experiment (BATSE) on the Compton Gamma-ray Observatory, the KONUS experiment, and NASA’s Swift gamma-ray burst mission.
The results were presented at the GRB 2010 meeting in Annapolis, Maryland, on November 1, 2010. (ANI)
