Textbook Problem

Suppose black holes radiate their mass away and the lifetime of a black hole created by a supernova is about 1067 years. How does this lifetime compare with the accepted age of the universe? Is it surprising that we do not observe the predicted characteristic radiation?

To determine

The comparison of lifetime of supernova with the accepted age of the universe. Also, determine whether it is surprising or not that the predicted characteristics radiation cannot be observed.

Explanation

The age of the objects with in the universe cannot be of different age than age of the universe. The scientist determines the age of the oldest star and thus put a limit on the age of universe and earth. Since the age of earth is considered to be 13.8 billion years does not limits the age of any other component of the Universe as in simple terms age of any celestial component will be ranging from 0 years to the age of the oldest star which can be of anything...
