How can a singularity even exist considering the Special Theory of Relativity? If nothing can go faster than light, how can the mass of a collapsing star blink out into a black hole. As it approched the speed of light it's frame of reference for time would slow down, and it would take and infinite amount of time (to an outside observer) for a singularity to form.
