Very cool article. It'll probably be buried under a whole bunch of redundant PSN articles, but I'm glad I read this one.

unless he's just meaning that if photons can't escape a black hole then sound won't either

my guess is the portals ustilise and exploit paired particles and a type of wormhole thing

the gun links 2 particles when it hits first for one portal 2nd for the other and uses whatever connects them and opens it up :)

anyone got a better idea
