Is there a theoretical upper bound for the density of matter? Given a proton (already almost as dense as a black hole, according to Wikipedia), can you theoretically compress it into any non-zero volume? Has any work been done that shows that matter can or cannot achieve certain levels of density?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thank you,
