An Amazing Phenomenon: Super-Sized Black Holes
Stephen William Hawking calculated in 1974 that black holes should create and emit particles, known as Bekenstein-Hawking radiation, until they evaporate.
Witnessing a super-sized black hole swallowing a sun-like star in the constellation Draco by NASA`s Swift Satellite is one of these most impressive cosmic spectacles that will help us better understand the nature of black holes from a practical point of view, giving us the opportunity to compare observable energy processes with all our theoretical assumptions.
The results may be useful to further develop today`s standard model of physics beyond Einstein`s general theory of relativity, quantum mechanics and particle physics, as these three theories do not fit each other at many points. Up till now, nobody has been able to find the answers throughout the last decades, despite the investment of billions of dollars around the globe to overcome this great dilemma.
We could summarize that Albert Einstein`s space-time unfortunately cannot contain a kind of ether vacuum energy, because otherwise the speed of light would not be constant for any observer. Light would appear with different speed, depending on the movement of an observer within such ether construction. Einstein`s absolutely straight lines between distances in three-dimensional space and a straight time scale, representing a fourth dimension, react to the presence of masses with curvatures, causing gravity and deviating light rays.
Today`s quantum physicists argue for potential vacuum energy differently. They assume vacuum to consist of so-called quantum foam, representing particles and antiparticles in a sort of indifferent mode below the threshold of actual appearance. Particle physicists probably have even a more serious problem, because due to their actual theories within the standard model of physics, atomic structures and certainly also their aggregation up to super-sized black holes just cannot have a mass at all.
This fact may astonish most people reading articles about a sun and light engulfing super-sized black hole. Particle physicists actually need a completely unknown type of a so-called mass background field and, additionally, postulated but not yet found very special exchange particle to provide atomic structures with a mass feature: Neither the collected millions of suns nor Einstein`s distorted space-time seem to be the true reason for the witnessed voracious super-sized black hole in Draco.
But how do such an unknown mass background field and unknown mass exchange particles behave in case of a usual black hole? And do they change functions in case of a Draco`s super-sized black hole?
There is one just upcoming view that could light and inspire these discussions about completely unsolved issues between specialists of Einstein`s general theory of relativity, quantum physicists, particle physicists and black hole specialists concerning the transition from one theory into the other, especially with respect to expected vacuum energy and an obviously necessary mass background field: The consideration of a rotary construction of Einstein`s space-time grid around and below the point of a generally accepted quantized minima of length and time. These minima for length and time have been introduced by Max Planck and are today undisputed quantities across all disciplines of physics.
Could such a rotary construction hide still unknown forms of energy that could be named quintessence and integrated into current models of quantum mechanics and particle physics up to the phenomena of super-sized black holes?
The answer seems to be yes! Such a rotary construction develops three additional space-time quadrants on top of Einstein`s views of space-time. The rotary structure energizes the space-time grid at and below Planck`s minima for length and time. This way, speed of light will always stay constant, although space-time gets suddenly its vacuum energy features.
This new approach could combine today`s existing stand-alone models of physics for fundamental forces and energies of nature right up to the most spectacular energy processes of Draco`s super-sized black hole that is actually compressed into minimum possible areas of space and time.
