Once they form they are left with
John Michell (1784) and Pierre-Simon Laplace (1796) propose the existence of “dark stars”…that lock in light (in Newtonian mechanics)
Albert Einstein publishes his first paper on GR (1915)
Karl Schwarzschild finds black holes as a solution to Einstein’s equations (1916)
Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar suggests that a massive star can collapse into something denser (1930)
Robert Oppenheimer and Hartland Snyder predict that massive stars can collapse into black holes (1939)
Roy Kerr finds the solution for rotating black holes (1963)
Stephen Hawking considers quantum effects: quantum black holes are different from classical black holes (1974)

And haze, and vista, and the far horizonS, fading away..

TEST: Gravity Probe B
how do they form?!
Supernovae Type II and Hypernovae!
What is left?
a=0.75-0.90 (Gammie et al 2004)
NOTE: spin up
Any black hole emits Hawking black body radiation with
The characteristic time for quantum effectsis
For MBH= 1 MSUN ….
The energy reached by the Large Hadron Collider MAY produce micro black holes ( )…if this were to occur, would it be dangerous?Why?
