Soulsurfer (methinks) in a previous thread made the very good point that whilst in a simulation and in imagination stuff falls endlessly into the blackhole - in reality nothing/very little is heading directly at the incredibly small object and much will thus end up in a very small and fast, and destructive orbit.
Fract - Is the LHC actually producing tiny blackholes? I thought that was a theoretical possibility when the energies involved were notched up much more than at present.
It is also worth remembering that the heat of the background means that any black hole worthy of the name is a net absorber of radiation and is actually growing in size and getting colder rather than evaporating and getting hotter (ie their blackbody equiv temperature is lower than cmbr).
Nope, give a experiment with a macro object tunneling and I will stand corrected though.
I know Imatfaal, the theory doesn't really stop at the microscopic plane. But for all practical purposes it seems to do just that, although there are some trying to show that it goes in all 'scales'.What's interesting to me is why and where.
