Mathematicians have devised a new way to crinkle up the fabric of space-time—at least in theory.
“We show that space-time cannot be locally flat at a point where two shock waves collide,” says Blake Temple, professor of mathematics at University of California, Davis. “This is a new kind of singularity in general relativity.”
