firstly hi all this is my first ever thread so please be gentle,,
tonight as i was putting my 8 year old daughter to bed she asked me some questions about the big bang, i do have a question at the end so please be paitient.
it started with her telling me,,,,, dad ,,,if something ends wont that mean a new beginning for something else,,,, !yes i suppose so i replied ,, and she then asked me this ,,,dad ,,if the universe just keeps on going (expanding) will it ever have a definite end,,, ? ,ummm i say... eventually i think so yess,, i replied ,, and dad, she says, can a black hole eat another black hole ..so eventually one bigger one would eat another smaller one ...(im thinking just like natural selection at this point,, but not a multiverse) so eventually one would just get bigger and bigger untill it ate everything ,,, planets, stars, galaxies ,,other black holes ,,the lot, untill nothing else was left ,,,no light, matter ,,nothing, just an extremely large black hole ,,,and then it went BANG ..... and it all started over again,,,, the universe,. ............................?
my question is this ... is that possible,,, ? for black holes to eat each other ...in a big fish eat smaller fish fasion, until nothing remains but the last one ,, and then ,,with a big bang ,it starts all over again? and i dont mean in a fecundity cosmological natural selection way.
she is very very curious about everything to do with the universe,, and we chat alot about all sorts ,, but her theory just blew me away..
any ideas? many thanks for any replies?
