Could Naked Singularities Exist?

To support SciShow Space and learn more about Brilliant, go to https://brilliant.org/scishowspace/.
A naked singularity is something that should be a black hole, but it’s neither black nor a hole. If they exist, they’ll rewrite physics as we know it.

We want to learn more about you and your opinions! If you have time, please take a moment to fill out this survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SciShowSurvey2017
Thank you!
