Research shows black holes of light are impossible – challenging Einstein’s theory of relativity

New research suggests that extreme objects known as “kugelblitze” – black holes formed solely from light – are impossible in our universe, posing a challenge Einstein’s general theory of relativityThe discovery imposes significant constraints on cosmological models and shows how quantum mechanics and general relativity can be used to solve complex scientific questions.

Black holes —massive objects with such strong gravity that not even light can escape their grasp—are among the most intriguing and bizarre objects in the universe. They are typically created by the collapse of massive stars at the end of their life cycles, when the pressure of thermonuclear reactions in their cores exceeds the power of gravity.
