The Shell Collapsar established in GR

A consistent description is possible for gravitationally collapsed bodies in General Relativity, in which collapse stops before the object reaches its gravitational radius. Non-singular solutions exist with the density reaching a maximum close to the surface and then decreasing towards … Continue reading

LIGO’s new Gravitational Pulse – puzzling for Black-Hole interpretations

The four instances of the inspiral-merger pattern of a gravitation pulse from coalescing binary objects are over-interpreted and raise statistical questions. The final ring-down is too weak to distinguish exotic ‘Black Hole’ mergers from neutron star mergers. Why no identifications of the expected closer smaller merging events? The extraordinary claim to ‘primordial’ Black Holes is based on uncertain indications of spins. Continue reading
