You always bring the best science porn to us amateurs, Ethan. Good job.

I agree with Rodrigo Matos that there may be answers in black hole theory and possible experiments/observations that may be used to verify high energy states of light and matter.

I submit that a black hole may actually be somewhat hollow (incoming matter converted to light and trapped in a tight orbit above the core but below the event horizon) and CRB may be a particle creation from escaping light at poles rather than a mass acceleration process. Then, cosmic rays become a matter of creating particles at speed, rather than accelerating the mass up to that speed. Studying this may lead to why matter emerges more than antimatter. If nothing else, it gives another gradient dimension to the shaping forces beneath the EH.

Thought problem: What would you get if CERN was traveling at the speed of light?

Can gravity waves give us enough information about density gradients in collisions or do we see the collision end as indeterminant beyond the late stage orbit decay?
