We have heard the term "white hole" as some kind of opposite
entity to a black hole. Is this part of accepted theory
or is it simply speculation? Could you describe what it is?
Theoretically, if 2 black holes were to collide, a runaway effect
could develop, that results in a rapid and enormous release of energy.
Followed by the complete evaporation of the now single black hole to a
zero mass. Eventually, stopping its spin. In its final stages, it would
appear to be a white hole in which energy is pouring out.
This is a paraphrase from a book I have, so sorry if it is cryptic and
also for the typing/spelling errors...
