Atoms & Black Holes

  1. Feb 1, 2005 #1
    I've got a question ... if atoms cannot be compacted, beyond a certain minute level, how can they exist inside a black hole, and particularly at the 'singularity' point? Wouldn't the fact that atoms cannot be compacted below a certain level falsify the hypothesis of a singularity at the centre of a black hole?

    You might be able to tell, from this question, that I'm a popular science buff, and a historian of science, and not a physicist ... I hope this is not a silly question ... but I'd really like you to explain it ...
