Today, as I guess, there are good indications that black-holes are a reality.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

But let us go back in time and pretend we are physicists in 1916 or a few years later.

Schwarzschild lectures us about its static and spherical solution to the Einstein's equation.

The consequence is striking: any communication is cut off between the universe and the interior of the Schwarzschild sphere.

How could you digest such a striking consequence?

Would you not reject the Einstein's equations?

Would there be good or compelling reasons to trust the Einstein's equations?

Would there be no alternaive but to accept the Einstein's equations and its consequence?

I hope the reasons of the physicist in that time have not been lost!

It could help me to digest GR!

Thanks,

Michel
