For years we have speculated about what black hole looks like and by 2019 might have an answer. Or not. Some scientists, like physicist George Chaplin think that there aren’t actually any black holes. Instead he thinks there are dark energy stars. However, the majority of astrophysicists do not agree with Chaplin. A lot of scientists are looking forward to 2019 when they could receive an answer to this hotly debated issue.
- One of the largest black holes under investigation for years has been the one located at the centre of the Milky Way.
- The dark energy around stars near black holes may be due to gas created by a vacuum-like effect.
- Experts and enthusiasts alike in the field of astrophysics have not been highly supportive of Chapline’s claims.
“Chapline and Laughlin argue that they can describe the collapsed stars that most scientists take to be black holes as regions where spacetime has undergone a phase transition.”
