Do I have a question for all you astronomy buffs out there. I am just a normal high schooler that has taken an interest in astronomy and cosmology. Over the years, I have done my research, and I have found an eerie similarity between Stephen Hawking's theory of the beginning of the universe and other theories related to the end of the universe. Stephen Hawking believes that the Big Bang came from an infinitely small and infinitely massive black hole. I partly disagree with this because if it is infinitely small, than it is non existent. However, I do not want to ignore his theory of a black hole creating the Big Bang. If you look at the "Big Chill" theory for the end of the universe, it states that all matter will eventually break down and "dissolve" and literally nothing will be left in the universe. However, before we enter this "Dark Era", we enter a "Black Hole Era", a time of the universe where black holes reign supreme, feeding on nothing but themselves. I also read an article stating that, supposedly, if a black hole is deprived of all "fuel" sources, it literally explodes. So my question to you is, what if the universe can recycle itself just like stars do, but by using black holes at the end of its life that are so far apart, they can not interact with each other and explode to create "universal nebulas"? If this is true, we might even have current evidence of this. There is a theory that some parts of the universe are expanding faster than other parts. I would truly appreciate your input on this, and possibly physicist recommendations that I can e-mail and not have to wait five years for a reply. Thank You.
