- Is it possible to confine energy in order to create a black hole?
Main Question or Discussion Point
After binge watching Steins;Gate, it has had me thinking about black holes. In the show it mentioned the idea of microscopic black holes(CERN). That being said, if matter and energy have an "equivalence", and if the Schwarzschild radius depends on mass, then would it be possible to confine a certain amount of energy that would result in a black hole. I am imagining a supernova going off in an indestructible geometry of some sort(confinement). However, I guess one should consider the contents of the energy itself, being photons or other particles who have a short half life. This would cause unstable I am sure... The idea of quantum or microscopic black holes are very interesting to think about.
