  1. I recently had cause to look up the definition of supernova, and can only conclude that it is just plain wrong. I can understand early astronomers thinking that stars explode (there was literally nothing else to think) but once the existence of black holes was established, surely a rethink was required. Take a step back, from what you think you know about cosmology, and have another look, considering this: The greater universe is littered with vast bright objects emitting eternal light and vast dark objects absorbing it - anyone with any imagination, at all, ought to wonder, "is this some sort of cycle?" Stars are about implosion, not explosion, and have the perfect mechanism for releasing the heat energy generated. black holes, on the other hand, which must continue to generate heat right up to the moment of reaching maximum density, have no such mechanism and must, therefore, be considered explosive. Consider what a black hole is (all of the matter from a star's universe, all planets and debris reabsorbed, minus most of its light) and what it does (sits in space for billions of years harvesting light from every star it can see) and think what will happen when it has finally absorbed exactly, down to the last photon, the same amount of light that it emitted as a star. Einstein hasn't helped here, by his assertion that - the equal and opposite reaction to a ten billion year implosion is a wormhole to Narnia; but surely, on regaining all its light, it comes up hard against the point of critical mass, and begins the two stage (emission/absorption) implosion phase of the cycle (yet again) with a 'Big Bang'? It's a solar system, not a series of random solar incidents. Merry Christmas, Steve de Jonge
