i'm kind of curious as to how they can quantify the radius of a black hole, which is supposedly a singularity. are they talking about the radius of
in any case, and perhaps i'm just not scientifically minded enough to understand the article correctly, but this would cause me to believe that light
is simply a wave without a particle accompaniment. As such, i would be lead to believe that light would need a medium through which to travel, lending
credence to dark matter theories. beyond that, i can only assume that light does in fact escape a black hole, but in doing so loses so much energy
that it would not be bright enough to be visible on earth without extremely sensitive instruments (et al the devices mentioned in the article)
designed just for that purpose.
or, maybe they're just using a broad term for light and including X-Rays as light. i dunno, that's all i could come up with.
