    Hello, my name is julian and this is my first post.

    I'm not sure if I should even be posting here because I don't know a lot about physics.

    I have been watching a lot of documentaries and using wikipedia to learn and I've come up with some theories that could be completely ridiculous .

    I just watched one about hawking radiation, black holes emit energy and it contradicts what we thought about black holes.

    just had a thought though. what if the gravitational pull at the centre of a black hole is so strong that the atoms break apart. there is so much force from gravity

    that the atoms break apart and turn into energy that is propelled outward into hawking radiation E=MC2

    Greetings Julian and welcome to the forum!

    Regarding your try at an answer, no. That's not it. Nothing can go faster than the speed of light, not even the parts that atoms are broken in to. The fastest that something can travel when an atom breaks into pieces is light which is moving with a speed of 3x108m/s. Everything else has a speed less than that. Light can't escape with that speed. Actually nothing really escapes a black hole even hawking radiation. The only thing that's leaving is energy but energy is not a physical thing. What happens is that particles are created in pairs near the event horizon. One of the pairs has positive energy and the other has negative energy. The negative energy particle is created inside the event horizon while the other is created outside the event horizon and escapes to infinity.

    Read the thread in this sub-forum called Is Negative energy real? for details and references. Any questions then just let me know.
