What Happens If You Destroy A Black Hole?

The video explores the concept of destroying a black hole and the potential consequences of doing so. It discusses various methods, such as nuking the black hole or throwing antimatter at it, but concludes that these methods only increase the mass of the black hole rather than destroying it. The video then explores the possibility of destroying the event horizon of a black hole by overcharging or overspinning it, but acknowledges that this could lead to a ’naked singularity’ and the breakdown of physics as we know it. The video ultimately concludes that the safest method to destroy a black hole is to wait for it to naturally evaporate through Hawking radiation.
