A high-octane debate has broken out among the world’s physicists after a scientist’s statement that she has mathematical proof that black holes do not exist.
Under current theories for black holes, it is considered that the stars larger than the sun collapsed under their own gravity and formed black holes as they died. Nothing can escape from the invisible membrane known as the event horizon around a black hole… Not even light itself.
However, scientist Laura Mersini-Houghton at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the College of Arts and Sciences has proven, mathematically, that black holes can never come into being as it is impossible for stars to collapse and form a singularity.
But if this is true, the theory of the formation of universe that began as a singularity, followed by the Big Bang, could also be a questionable event.
