The Black Hole – Can the ‘Irresistible Force’ Overcome the ‘Immovable Object?’

Keywords: Neutron Star, Black Hole, Gravity, Density, Crothers

Following some earlier work by Antoci and Abrams, Crothers has spent at least the past decade arguing the mathematical impossibility of the black hole.  Following a brief review of the mathematical argument, a physical one is presented, based on analysis of the ‘irresistible force’ of increasing gravity allegedly collapsing a neutron star with an even greater ‘immovable object’ of increasing density into a black hole.  This physical argument supports Crothers’, et al., contention that a black hole is both a mathematical as well as physical impossibility.
