Are black holes still considered theory or are they accepted as real ,the sa
same way pulsars and quasars are.
Pulsars and quasars were discovered observationally. Black holes are
predicted theoretically. The challenge with pulsars and quasars is to
develop theories to explain them. The challenge with black holes is
to find the observational evidence to support the theory. Recent
observations from the Hubble Space Telescope have provided the best
evidence to date for the existence of black holes. I think most
scientists would now agree that black holes exist.
