Interesting question. Perhaps take a look at absolute zero: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Absolute_zero

So when the fusion processes stop and gravity continues to compact the atoms, don't they begin to fuse past iron from heat/pressure (a byproduct of gravity), much like supernovae can fuse atoms beyond iron? If so, then the soon-to-be black hole would stabilize (at least for awhile) before it becomes an actual singularity.

comment Do airlocks in space decompress violently as they do in movies?
As for "then why do airlocks do this in movies?" I wasn't asking what the purpose was, I was looking for confirmation that it is unrealistic.

comment Do airlocks in space decompress violently as they do in movies?
Not at all what I said. I asked why air rushes out in airlocks in movies. I never asked about a scenario regarding how you could make air rush out of an airlock at crazy velocities or any such nonsense to suggest I was asking about a hypocritical situation.

@Wouter Gas expands in space because molecules bounce against each other, right? How would that be different than a solid? Is it just because gas isn't tightly held together (so it can move more freely)?

comment Are shadows underwater “wet”?
Not that I can do anything, but can we stop closing questions for obviously untrue reasons? What the user is asking here is pretty obvious: can shadows underwater be considered 'wet'? In any case, the question is fairly clear.
