Some physicists have believed in a "firewall" around the perimeter of a black hole that would otherwise be sucked into its powerful gravitational pull.
The Ohio State University has a calculated explanation of what would happen if an electron black hole, with a mass as big as the sun.
"The probability of the electron hitting Samir Mathur, a professor of physics at Ohio State, said: "A photon from the radiation and burning up is negligible; The study appears in the Journal of High Energy Physics.
The new study builds on previous work from 2004 by Mathur that theorized that black holes are basically giant, brassy balls of yarn – "fuzzballs" that gather more and more folders That theory, Mathur said, resolved the famous black hole "information paradox" outlined by Steven Hawking in 1
The firewall argument emerged in 2012, when four physicists from the University of California, Santa Barbara argued that it would be a fuzzball
Black holes are places in space.
"Black holes are places in space with such immense gravitational pull that it can not even
After months by mathematical machinations, Mathur and his team arrived at their by-the-numbers explanation to support their theory. It's built on string theory, the scientific notion that the universe is composed of subatomic string-like tubes of energy. [Einstein's theory of relativity.]
Mathur has always counted himself among those who are skeptical.
"The question is 'Where does the black hole grab you?' The firewall argument, "he." He says, "he. He thinks that as a person approaches the horizon, the fuzzball surface grows to be ready, it has a chance to reach the hottest part of the radiation, and this is a crucial finding in this new physics paper." said.
"The firewall argument had seemed like a quick way to prove that something is falling through." the horizon burns up. But now that can not be any such quick argument; [This article is not available in German only.] [Mathur said]

NASA's Fermi Traces Source of Cosmic Neutrino to Monster Black Hole
Greenbelt MD (SPX) Jul 13, 2018
For the first time ever, scientists using NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope have found the source of a high-energy neutrino from outside our galaxy. This neutrino traveled 3.7 billion years at almost the speed of light before being detected on Earth. This is farther than any other neutrino whose origin cancels can identify.
High-energy neutrinos are hard-to-catch particles that scientists think are created by the most powerful events in the cosmos, such as galaxy mergers and material falli … read more
