Interaction of 2 black holesWhat would the concequence of 2 black holes moved to a certain distance appart with one being say double or triple the mass of the other. Would the force (or could the force) be strong enough to warp space back so that it 'destroys' the event horision therefore returning the black hole to regular matter or whatnot.
Can you reverse a black hole? |

Is your question: what would happen if two black holes, one twice the mass of the other, encounter each other at a certain initial distance and relative velocity? The short answer is that exact solutions modeling such an event are in general hard to come by, but numerical simulations have been developed into an art form; for an authoritative discussion of simulations of black hole formation see this eprint by Stuart Shapiro and for a discussion of black hole-neutron star binaries see this eprint by Shapiro et al.

very long to evaporate if this suggestion turns out to be correct!So the best short answer to your question is probably: as far as we know, no, but over very long periods (much longer than the current age of the universe), possibly yes. |
