My 9 year old son just asked about how long the unverse will exist and aren't black holes cool.
It set me to thinking, if we think of the event horizon as a place where time stops, and of the universe having finite entropy which eventually becomes zero over a very long time, what happens to the event horizon?, does the frozen/stopped time simply vanish into the ether or what?
Might be a daft question, but maybe someone has an explanation?
Brian Cox has the most marvellous and accessible explanations of entropy and time in his Wonders of the Universe series. Great for all ages. It's repeated on BBC occasionally or you might get it on iPlayer if you have it. The whole series is super.
Thanks very much, thats a great suggestion, I'll have a look in the iPlayer for the series.
