Is a black hole a superconductor?
« on: 21/09/2014 16:53:38 »
Is this theoretically possible? If the magnetic field and the electric field could change orientation then an internally flowing magnetic flux could be a possible preventer of further collapse. It being much stronger than gravity. How would an external electric flux affect the environment around the event horizon?

To accurately describe my opinion on the black hole subject we have to start at the beginning, at the birth of a black hole during the death of a massive star.  A black hole is born when the core of a star "collapses" into a baby black hole, then the rest of the star gets eaten/consumed by the new black hole.

Imagine seeing that in person  :o

The key word here is "collapse" how does a dense core of a star just collapse into a tiny fraction of it's original size in a micro second, what is going on here? It's like trying to compress a solid with overwhelming gravity and that's exactly what happens.

what's happening is gravity becomes so strong that it overcomes electric repulsion between atoms pushing the nuclei of each atom together passed the electron cloud causing a state of mega compression which is in essence a black hole. What you end up with is a sort of super atom bound together by tremendous gravity.  It gets bizarre properties when this happens, it technically turns into a 5th state of matter called a BEC.

So I guess a BEC is a superconductor sort of. because any electrons in the core of a Black hole would be in the same state and share the same wave form. Try looking up Rydberg electron in google and see what you can find
