Black holes don't exist, or at least so says physics professor Laura Mersini-Houghton in a paper submitted to the non-peer reviewed online journal ArXiv: Back-reaction of the Hawking radiation flux on a gravitationally collapsing star II: Fireworks instead of firewalls

I found this interesting.

I have seen several reactions to it, but none of them are definitive. Everyone seems to think that this will need more time and investigation.

No particular surprise here. I have tended to think of black holes as theoretical entities awaiting better empirical evidence.

As for the Milky Way -- there's lots of gravity, but that's not enough to be sure that there's a black hole.

I seem to be the only active moderator this weekend.

I was noticing that this seemed to be taking a long time for promotion. If I were still an admin, I would have promoted it in an instant. I haven't seen any moose activity lately. Phat has been around, but probably sees this as outside his sphere.

Re: Black Holed theory
But we definitely know who is wrong?

I think your sarcasm detector is broken.
