## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi,

I'm new on here and this is my first post, so forgive me if I don't master the threads instantly :) - right, now that's out of way:

I want to open a discussion on the singularity in Black Holes, namely in regards to the well known issue of Special Realitivity breaking down at the singularity and attempts to address the problem of infinity. An infinitely dense and energetic singularity would violate quantum principles (see article linked below the following paragraph).

Recent Quantum research and theory in the fields of Quantum Loop Gravity (QLG) and Quantum Loop Cosmology (QLC) are beginning to study the Quantum aspects of Black Holes. This research really is quite recent, so data and modelling is still to mature fully. However, the following article gives a great overview of these fields and references much of the recent research in these fields on this topic (references all point to credible, peer reviewed journals):

http://www.scholarpedia.org/article/Astrophysical_and_cosmological_signatures_of_Loop_Quantum_Gravity#Black_holes_in_loop_quantum_gravity

See section 3 of the above for Black Holes specifically.

In essence, quantum effects and forces could prevent a singularity in Black Holes, and instead, could 'bounce' matter/energy in an opposite effect in the form of White Holes. White holes are predicted in Relativity. Simple overview of White Holes in the article link below, although I recommend the article above for more detailed scientific observation and many reference papers to examine the current research.

My aim is to not have this thread becoming a debate between standard and quantum models of Black Holes. Quite contrary, it would be great to use this to gain more insight into current research on Quantum Theory in Black Holes and Relativistic effects such as Hawking Evaporation (discussed in the research highlighted in the above article), as well as trying to marry Quantum Mechanics with Relativity.

Please feel free to contribute with any more insight, It's a fascinating time for both classical and quantum physics :)

Thanks,

Stu
