Black Holes, Gamma Ray Bursts, and the Milky Way Particles and anti-particles form outside of the event horizon and one of them goes into the black hole, they go in with negative mass o negative mass takes away, every so slightly, from the mass of the black hole o form within the event horizon then “tunnel their way out” Blackholes that come from collapsed stars gather mass faster than it evaporates Blackholes have a maximum rotation rate o wouldn’t have an event horizon o “naked singularity” o If it rotates you get an “ergosphere” energy can be extracted at maximum rotation rate it is half the schwarzchild of a non- rotating black sphere o event horizon is always spherical worm holes – would close shut once you go through it Gamma ray bursts o discovered by the Vela satellites o are associated with distant galaxies o some associated with supernovae those that are caused by core collapses shoots off gamma rays at the poles possibly by supernovae that form black holes immediately
