Ha! Right Gerald, You've just picked-up on a science cover-up. The initial 'sexy/scary' claim of black holes defined them as having infinite mass/density and so infinite 'gravity' and so an 'event horizon' that nothing could escape and so they were 'singularities' in space/time. So far, none of those attributes have been observed in the visible universe but the mainstream scientists are loth to lose a 'sexy/scary' fund-raiser. So they've been busy 'redefining' putative black holes until now they claim their existence from almost _any_ indications of high mass/density, like galactic cores, neutron stars, quasars etc. However there's an obstreporous bunch of younger physicists who've dared to say "Black Holes don't exist" - and, for several reasons (of basic physics), I fully agree with them. Cheers Ray D BTW - long time ago, after reading that 'Brief History' - I wrote to Hawking asking a couple of pointed questions about his use of the word 'infinite' (and therefore of the 'singularity' concept), but his secretary wrote back claiming he was too ill to answer. He never did. Listen to 'Strange Days... Indeed' - The PodCast At: http://www.virtuallystrange.net/ufo/sdi/program/ These contents above are copyright of the author and UFO UpDates - Toronto.
