Black holes are already some of the strangest objects in the universe, and scientists sometimes dream up some pretty wild theories about their behaviour. Like maybe they can accumulate dark matter particles and turn into black hole lasers, beaming radiation out into space.

Without an actual discovery, it can be difficult to convince us laypeople that there's really such a thing as "dark matter." It seems to interact with our universe solely through gravity, and no experiment has detected it here on Earth yet. So what if there's an explanation to what's causing the dark matter's using physics that already exists, like Higgs bosons and black holes?
