Do almost-black-holes also emit hawking radiation?

We know that black holes cannot form in a finite time for an outside observer. And collapsed stars will become frozen almost-black-holes. Will these objects also emit Hawking radiation, and if no, ...

How is it possible to enter a black hole, given time dilation?

This is a bit of a complex question - example scenario: X and Y (who happen to be immune from radiation and gravitation spaghettification, don't draw this into the equation) are some distance from a ...

Why this intuitive idea on unit length and unit time in general relativity fails so miserably

Let’s imagine a massive object and an observer. In time $t_0$ the observer pushes an automated test lab having clocks and rulers towards the massive object. Let’s says, it gives $1 \,u_l/u_t$ push to ...

How can matter falling into a black hole make it grow?

None of the answers to this question or this question answer my question. Once an object falls past the event horizon, it can no longer act as a source of gravity. Also, if one tiny object falls into ...

Can a photon cross the event horizon from the perspective of an outside observer?

There is an argument that matter can't ever cross the event horizon, that as it comes closer to the event horizon, outside observers see its time slow down and come to a crawl just outside of the ...
