Black holes could be inadvertently making gold, astrophysicists say
“The creation of metals such as gold, silver, thorium, and uranium require energetic conditions, such as a supernova explosion, or a collision between neutron stars. However, a new paper shows that these elements could form in the swirling chaos that rings an active newborn black hole as it swallows down dust and gas from the space around it.
USAGOLD note: The anti-gold contingent within financial media will no doubt seize upon this finding as just one more reason to short gold. [smile]
