Physicist Proposes Alternative to Black Holes

Quote

A physicist has incorporated a quantum mechanical idea with general relativity to arrive at a new alternative to black hole singularities.

What do you get when you cross two hypothetical alternatives to black holes? A self-consistent semiclassical relativistic star, according to Raúl Carballo-Rubio (International School for Advanced Studies, Trieste, Italy) whose recently published results in the February 6th Physical Review Letters describe a new mathematical model for the fate of massive stars.

Somehow I never liked the idea of a singularity. Then again, what do I know.

Reality does not care what we like or don't like. It is what it is.

Yes, and no one knows what it is. :) We can describe some of its behavior, but not what is behaving.
