At the HowTheLightGetsIn festival in May, cosmologist Laura Mersini-Houghton released her groundbreaking research into black holes to the public for the first time. In the talk, Mersini Houghton presented groundbreaking new research that shows black holes may not exist.
She claims that due to forces inside a collapsing star, that had been overlooked until now, event horizons and singularities do not form.
The current picture of black holes is that there is both a singularity and an event horizon – this new research shows that neither exist, and that rather than complete gravitational collapse, the star will bounce back, releasing the energy in the form of shock waves If new experiments can find the evidence to support her work, then we will have proof that there is no conflict between quantum mechanics and general relativity, and the black hole information paradox will be solved.
The talk is also avaiable to watch on iai tv – http://iai.tv/video/out-of-darkness. Follow up paper will be coming in a couple of months.
