Antimatter Comes from Black Holes

Antimatter Comes from Black Holes
Black hole

Russian and American scientists claim that black holes with comparatively small weight can be sources of antimatter.
      Researchers suggest that if primary black holes (which appeared during first stage of the Universes life), weighing not much and surrounded with ionized matter, exist in our Galaxy, then they are able to turn protons into positrons (electron antiparticles), working as powerful sources of antimatter.
      Existing theories say that black holes appear when massive starts collapse. Gravity of black holes surroundings is so high that even light is unable to leave a hole. Researchers think that in our Universe exist so-called primary black holes, which appeared from irregularities of primary matter. Black holes attract protons stronger than electrons, and finally become positively charged. When weight of such a black hole is comparatively small, then unstable vacuum near the hole generates electron-positron pairs. Electrons are captured by the electric field, and positrons become released, thus making a black hole an antimatter factory.
