I am currently working on a proposal for a study and I would like to run it by like minded people, mostly to gauge opinion and to develop the proposal
Currently cutting edge black hole research is based on the detection of gravity waves caused when black holes are formed and when two or more black
holes collide and merge.
I propose that there is another area to look closely at within this field of study.
According to Stephen Hawking a black hole would eventually evaporate entirely due to hawking radiation.
If that is correct, then there must be plenty of black holes that are in an advanced state of evaporation within the known universe.
I propose we look at ways of detecting these decaying remnants, as I believe studying them should be far more fruitful than studying the effects an
actual black hole has on its surrounds.
If you take Hawking radiation to it's ultimate conclusion then it must be a process that takes a black hole of millions of solar mass's and reduces
it right down to the Planck scale.
Does anyone else have any information on this?
Thanks for your help.
All the best,
