How tiny black holes left fingerprints on the moon

Science
Speaker 1: Billions of years ago, somewhere in the darkness and chaos, a few minuscule, unstable and hyper dense pockets of flaming matter may have collapsed. And if they did scientists believe they would've dotted the early universe with clusters of black holes, even smaller than Adams do not let the size of these black holes fall you for the record, a black hole, half the size of a golf ball would still have a mass equivalent to earths, even microscopic black holes [00:00:30] with masses, comparable to asteroids, would've sucked in and destroyed everything along their paths. Eventually after billions of years, these many black holes, would've it apart. And maybe even pass through our corner of the universe. Sciences, believe if all of this did happen, these tiny black holes could still be roaming in and around the galaxies. Right? This second, these mini black holes are the newest lead on dark matter. Speaker 1: One of the greatest mysteries of the universe, but what [00:01:00] is dark matter to put it simply dark matter is invisible matter. A theoretical physicist from the Canadian Institute of astrophysics describes dark matter as being transparent matter, dark matter slows the expansion of the universe down accounting for 27% of the cosmos dark energy up the universe's expansion accounting for 68%. This means that less than 5% of the universe is visible [00:01:30] standard energy and matter. We are used to here on earth, although dark matter, invisible, it still leaves fingerprints. If an atomic size black hole really did hit the moon as sciences proposed, we would notice the collisions effects. These collisions were produced small craters, a few meters wide with different shapes and properties than the usual asteroid impact. An assistant physics professor from Illinois state university says that the collision from one of these tiny black holes would be like drilling [00:02:00] a hole, filling it with dynamite, and then says it off the classic asteroid collision we see in movies and TV normally produces a large crater with the asteroid, barely penetrating the surface. Speaker 1: If a micro black hole was to quiet with a moon, it would create a small crater and continue borrowing through to the other side of the moon, leaving behind deposits of dark matter. But the moon moon couldn't have been the only planet in danger of getting blindsided by one of these tiny black holes, right? [00:02:30] Scientists suggests this possibility with the moon because it's very well studied. Earth could have been impacted by one of these small black holes, many years prior to our existence, but because of our atmosphere, earth would be protected from the of the impact and erosion of the Earth's surface would erase the trace of a possible collision. Simply put, we are safe, thanks to our atmosphere unless climate change has a different planet in store for us and the planet. Scientists Speaker 2: Also believe matter near [00:03:00] points of impact will be altered. The way matter is transformed by the detonation of an atomic bomb. The only way we will know if any of this is true or not, is if we go to the moon, which has not been done since the seventies, or send a probe to collect and analyze samples on the surface, do you think tiny bow, like holes could have burrowed through the moon once in time and left behind dark matter for us to find, let us know your thoughts below in the comments.
