A robot has been developed to help explore black holes. To do this, he will have to “bypass” the laws of physics.

The aim of the study was to evaluate how an object moves in a curved space. For

For this, scientists used a specialized shape-changing robot. During the tests, he moved in the simplest curved space - a sphere.

The machine was designed to create an environment withminimal interaction or exchange of impulses in curved space. To do this, the design used a set of engines on curvilinear tracks as a driving mass. This system was connected to a rotating shaft so that the engines always moved around the sphere. This shaft was supported by bearings and bushings to minimize friction, and the centering of the shaft was adjusted to Earth's gravity to minimize residual gravity.

This shaft was supported by bearings and bushings to minimize friction, and the centering of the shaft was adjusted to Earth's gravity to minimize residual gravity.

As a result, the robot moved around the sphere, whilehow gravity and friction had little effect on him. The researchers suggest that such robots could also one day help travel around black holes in curved space.
