Could Black Holes Give Birth to ‘Planck Stars’?

Black holes are vexing objects. Not only do they defy our everyday understanding about how the Universe should work, they confound even the most complex mathematical models. Science writers describe them as “gravitational behemoths” that warp spacetime so much that even light cannot escape the surrounding boundary, known as the “event horizon.” But what lies inside? Well, that doesn’t matter, we argue, everyday physics does not apply once you cross the event horizon.

The horribly unsatisfactory explanation has been battered in recent months when a serious physics confrontation entered the public arena. What goes on inside a black hole’s event horizon has actually caused a theoretical conflagration and now, two theoretical physicists have proposed a new idea that may marry quantum mechanics with gravity, extinguishing the tricky “firewall” and finding a solution to the “information paradox.”

Enter the “Planck Star.” It’s weird….
