I've never seen one before, no one has, but I'm guessing it's a white hole.

surely, if its supposed to be a true diametric opposite of a black hole....it shouldn't be a hole at all? :wink:

The problem with defining Black Holes as singularities of infinitely dense matter is that most scientists regard infinities as bullsh1t and bad maths/physics. The S stars around our own galaxy (moving millions of miles per hour) do point at an incredible strong gravitational well that cannot be directly observed. I dunno.

Er, current science theory suggests that the centre of a black hole is not infinitely small (see: Schwarzschild radius or Planck length, depending on your definition of "centre") and nor is it infinitely massive, therefore it cannot be of infinite density.
