how does a supernova become a black hole. Is it just because it implodes to a point in which the original star is so dense that it rips space-time?? my question is what makes the star implode?
i have read that the cause is that the pressure generated by the star is no longer able to counter the gravatational force exerted on it. Therefore it implodes. If this is true why cant we artifically create this implosion.
