Renowned New Zealand mathematician and astrophysicist Roy Carr challenges established theories about the nature of black holes. It was developed in the 1970s by Stephen Hawking and Nobel Prize winner Roger Penrose.
Scientists Stephen Hawking and Roger Penrose concluded that every black hole has a so-called singularity at its center. This is the point at which gravity reaches infinite strength. Mathematician and astrophysicist Roy Carr’s work not only casts doubt on this theory. Scientists aren’t even sure if a singularity occurs after a star collapses and forms an event horizon (a region of space from which light cannot escape due to gravity). He emphasizes that the singularity assumption is based on faith rather than hard scientific evidence.
