It’s the most energetic light source in the Universe against a massive gravitational monster. Could this cosmic showdown reverse the flow of time?
Pitting a black hole against a gamma-ray could spell some serious danger for our Universe.
Extremely dense and with a lot of gravity, most black holes are the remnants of massive stars. Compressed to a point called a singularity. At this infinitely small point in the center, conceptions of space and time break down.
Gamma-ray bursts are the strongest and brightest explosions in the Universe. In one second, gamma-ray bursts emit as much energy as the Sun will emit during its entire 10-billion year lifespan.
What if these two powerful phenomena collided?

What If is a mini-documentary web series that takes you on an epic journey through hypothetical worlds and possibilities. Join us on an imaginary adventure through time, space and chance while we (hopefully) boil down complex subjects in a fun and entertaining way.
