Primordial black holes are a dark matter candidate. Suppose you put a primordial black hole the mass of an asteroid in Earth's core. Will it grow? NO! The black hole will be on the order of a proton ...
I understand that accretion of normal matter into a super-massive black hole leads to x-ray emissions. Is the same effect expected to occur for dark matter accretion into a supermassive black hole? ...
Some people speculate that the mysterious dark matter in the universe could be tiny black holes. But on the other side, could dark matter particles attract each other by gravity and finally form a ...
How much of the mass of a supermassive black hole comes from dark matter? Assuming cold dark matter exists and that it doesn't bank up and get pushed away from black holes like some baryonic matter. ...
A while ago, there was some conspicuous evidence that supermassive black holes didn't seem to be eating dark matter at the expected rate of 70%-30%, in fact, only 10% of the black hole mass increase ...
Among the many Dark Matter candidates, I wondered if there are any along the lines of the title. The inner horizon of a black hole, with its mass inflation, and/or the high spacetime curvature, seems ...
In my understanding, there exists a critical mass for which a star needs to be in order for it to collapse into a black hole. This also applies to a certain critical density of gas in order for stars ...
Since 90 % of matter is what we cannot see, why can't it be black-holes from early on? Is is possible to figure out that there are no black holes in the line of sight of various stars/galaxies we ...
