Black Holes Exist. So Does Bad Science

The press jumped on a new paper that claims that black holes can’t ever form. In the new paper, the authors claim that if you include Hawking radiation, the emission of particles from a black hole's surface, the extra contribution is enough to stop gravitational ...

Black holes cannot actually exist, according to mathematical proof

Black holes are so entwined in the established scientific narrative these days that it's easy to forget that their existence is still completely theoretical.

Alan Lightman on Richard Feynman's Amazing Mind, or how "Hawking Radiation" could well be "Feynman Radiation"

Quotes

"Physicists have been trying to merge these two theories – Einstein's theory of gravity and quantum mechanics – for decades, but this scenario brings these two theories together, into harmony" said Mersini-Houghton. "And that's a big deal."
"They are not going to solve any of mankind's problems, right here on earth, you probably already knew that. But for astronomers, they are very interesting...if we can figure out what they are and how far away they are" says Lorimer
horizon ( arxiv.org/abs/1302.0375 ). "It was a very clear, conclusive"
