    White holes are the opposite of black holes...or maybe they are the same:



    If anything survives getting sucked into a black hole it might be ejected at a distant white hole end and into another universe...

    White holes are basically theoretical anti-black holes- meaning, they are a time reversal of the black hole and eject any matter that has crossed into the event horizon.

    The reason we really don't know a lot about them is that they are purely theoretical- they only arise as a solution to one of Einstein's equations, and can only exist under ideal conditions.
