I Are quark stars a realistic solution to the black hole singularity problem?

    Is this a realistic solution to the black hole singularity problem,
    Going beyond that, neutrino stars?

    No. A quark star is not a black hole or vice versa.

    The only solution would be the one which explains gravity interactions on very small scales.
    Some tentative quantum gravity theories predict that gravity on very small scales is asymptotically safe or even asymptotically free.

    Thanks.
    I thought this interesting, but it doesn't get going until about 20m in.

    How is a talk by Dan Hooper on dark matter relevant for the topic of the OP? I am not going to watch an hour of a popular talk just to figure this out.

    OK thanks.
    An improved version of my question is this?
    Quark star is a hypothetical state state of matter which is more dense then a neutron star, but not a black hole.
    Is it so dense that it would have an event horizon as far as an external observer can see?
