    What type of atom is a singularity primarily composed of? Hydrogen? So the fusion reactions in black holes lead to infinitely dense hydrogen atoms?

    Theoretically, no atoms can survive the process by which BHs are created, nor even sub-atomic particles. The centers of black holes are made of very exotic forms of matter.

    The singularity of a black hole is a prediction of general relativity. Quantum theory says it can't be so. No one really knows what goes on inside a black hole.
