Black Hole vs. Anti-Black Hole

  1. Jun 26, 2010 #1
    What would happen?

    I mean, would they annihilate?

    There is no such thing as an anti-Black Hole in conventional physics. Could you be talking about something else?

    No, When I say anti-black hole, I'm referring to a black hole collapsed from anti-matter.

    They would merge into a single black hole. A black hole has no memory of what kind of material it formed out of.

    I guess that this is because all the energy in such a small space makes the particles kind of random (e=mc stuff) and destroys the information or what?

    The real answer is that there is no way to get any information about what went into a hole, other than how much was there, and if it carried angular momentum.

    Could there be a nugget of information inside the horizon? Sure, why not, but much like the tootsie roll at the center of a tootsie pop, until you figure out how to bite open a black hole, it's gone.

    One, ta-hoooo, tha-reee... *crunch*
