Relativity and Cosmology


Gravitational Limits

Authors: Willi Penker

The theory of black holes states that without the energy set free by nuclear fusion, the gravity of a big star will always be stronger than all other forces, causing it to collapse and ending in a singularity. During such a collapse, however, gravity itself should free enough binding energy to ultimately prevent the star from collapsing to a state where its escape velocity reaches the speed of light.
