Quantum bounce could make black holes explode
If space-time is granular, it could reverse gravitational collapse and turn it into expansion.
Black holes might end their lives by transforming into their exact opposite — ‘white holes’ that explosively pour all the material they ever swallowed into space, say two physicists. The suggestion, based on a speculative quantum theory of gravity, could solve a long-standing conundrum about whether black holes destroy information.
