If gravitons exist, how can black holes emit them? It cannot be like Hawking radiation, which increases as the black hole gets smaller. The gravitational field grows larger as black holes grow larger. Also, would not the energy of the graviton decrease to zero (and its wavelength increase to infinity) as a graviton rose from the event horizon? I don't see how gravitons and black holes are consistent concepts.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
