Don't Give Up, If You Get Stuck in a Black Hole

According to an 8/25 Newsmax article titled “Stephen Hawking: Black Holes May Have Exits After All,” the famed physicist now believes that black holes may not be the no-exit-ever spaces they’re thought to be. In his latest mind-bending theory, Hawking postulates that unfortunate space travelers could escape from black holes after all, but they won’t be able to go home to their own universe. That’s a bummer. On the other hand, Hawking reassuringly concluded: “If you feel you are in a black hole, don’t give up. There’s a way out.” He presented his views in a lecture on Monday at Stockholm University.

What's great about Hawking is that he doesn't become wedded to a hypothesis. He is willing to change his hypothesis when new data presents itself. Of course, this is what science aims to do. But far too often, people are unwilling to change their minds, despite new, conflicting evidence.

ReplyDeleteMises's ideas are more important and relevant.

ReplyDeleteThe field of physics is already terribly flawed because of how politics influences it. We don’t need Hawking to make it even worse. How many people are awed by his fantasy talk because they think they need to feel guilty because he is disabled?

ReplyDelete[aka Stargazer] Who needs a black hole, we already live in an alternate universe.

ReplyDeleteAll alleged ‘black hole solutions’ to Einstein’s field equations pertain to a universe that contains only one mass, namely, the mass of the black hole itself, by mathematical construction. There are no known solutions to the field equations for two or more black holes and there is no existence theorem by which it can even be asserted that the field equations contain latent solutions for two or more black holes.

Black holes highlight a situation, common today in astrophysics, where the object under investigation cannot be seen directly. This situation is pure heaven for the crowd of mathematical theorists who have hijacked physics from the natural philosophers and experimentalists.

...the electric force, which can reasonably be regarded as 10^39 (i.e. one thousand million million million million million million) times as strong as the gravitational force, is what changes everything. It is the electric force that “holds in” the bodies that revolve at otherwise unaccountable rates (as we have noted with respect to “Dark Matter” in a previous article), and, indeed, that accounts for the synchrotron radiation detected by astronomers. Because of this electric force, operating in somewhat similar way to Faraday’s homopolar motor, the fudge of neither Dark Matter nor Black Holes is necessary to account for the cosmic cohesion that we see, and both concepts can be consigned to the dustbin of human history...

I will drop him a line in a hundred quadrillion years.
