Recently I read a news post about Stephen Hawking’s new theory on black holes – that they might actually keep matter on the event horizon, instead of sucking it all the way in.  I really think this is NOT the case, since quasars seem to prove that matter that is getting “sucked” in is also getting pushed out, in some form (see first image), and NOT getting “stuck” on the event horizon.

In light of this, I had been thinking of my own ideas regarding black holes (from whatever limited knowledge I have on it from watching dozens of videos on it over many years). How about this (and perhaps this is already common knowledge among experts in most part):  Matter gets pulled towards the black hole, and the atomic structure starts to break apart as it falls towards the center (whatever the “center” is).  My guess is that these atoms are spinning at such great centrifugal force that the atoms become ripped apart at the quantum level (perhaps even shredded along some surface of some kind of internal spherical mass).  I think this continues exponentially, such that the closer this quantum “soup” spins inwards to the center, the more explosive the power;  thus, at some point, the exponential power of this spinning “soup” (perhaps also due to friction of colliding particles?) is greater than the gravitational force pulling in, and then some form of energy shoots outwards.

Quasar Type Black Hole

Of course, not all black holes are shooting out jets like this.  The ones that don’t might look like this – assuming there’s nothing getting “sucked” into it:

The black hole above is an artist’s rendition (not a true photo).  This is what black holes may look like when nothing is getting sucked in – other than light of course.  Light does, however, get pulled in, and bent around the edges as well.  That said, sucking in light is not enough energy to produce a quasar.  That said, the emitted energy just might be so thin/faint it cannot be seen.  There’s also the idea of the “Hawking Radiation” (named after Stephen Hawking of course – the one who proposed it), in which black holes give off radiation, which will eventually cause them to die out.  My only trouble with this idea is that as a black hole gets smaller, the density also would decrease, most likely causing a slow expansion into a perfect sphere of some sort of matter.  At some point during this process, light no longer gets pulled into it, and it ceases to be a black hole, just a perfect sphere of “something” floating in space. Because there’s no energy from inward falling matter, the end result might be a cold dead perfect floating ball of matter in space – a “black dwarf”.  This may in fact be another way to form black dwarfs, aside from cooling white dwarfs.

In any case, it seems that matter getting sucked in makes a visible quasar (first picture above). This continues until all available surrounding matter is sucked in (some being shot outwards during the course), at which some point the second black hole picture above is the result. Where it goes from here no one really knows, but I don’t think there’s any radiation (there’s no more inward swirling “soup”). Personally, I think gravity just keeps a black mass together floating by, until something else gets sucked into it.
