    What happens to the Singularity when a Black Evaporates out of existence?

    "Singularity" just means "the place where the math model breaks down and we don't know WHAT is going on", so it it not a "thing" that can be discussed in that way.

    This is one of the major open questions in quantum gravity. Actually it's two questions: (1) does a singularity even form in the first place, or do quantum corrections make something else happen instead? (2) if a singularity does form, does it disappear when a black hole evaporates, or leave a "remnant", or something else?
