Black Holes and Our Cooling Universe
ample evidence that the Universe is cooling down. And there are theories why
this is occurring (notably an expanding Universe). In this article we discuss,
in a qualitative way, the role that black holes might play.
in the previous article “On Photons
and Gravity”, there are theoretical reasons why the photons captured by
black holes gradually deplete the net photon flux throughout the Universe. And
the Universe’s temperature is a function of this flux. Hence black holes may
play a role in Universal cooling. And as the number and gravitational strength
of these phenomena increase, so does the rate of cooling.
