This might go down like a lead balloon but a physics professor in the US, Laura Mersini-Houghton, has proven, mathematically, that black holes can never come into being in the first place -but, but, but I've seen them – a big flash of light captured via a space telescope. Does this mean scientists will now have to re-imagine the fabric of space time (quoting the article). This seems to imply they imagined black holes in the first place. See http://phys.org/print330767292.html
According to mainstream black holes form when a massive star collapses under its own gravity to a single point in space – a singularity. Its gravitational pull is so strong nothing can escape from out of a black hole.
In 1974 Stephen Hawking used quantum mechanics to show that black holes emit radiation and it is said that some scientists have actually detected evidence of this radiation in diverse locations in the universe. In recent times, and with more powerful telescopes, scientists think they are looking at black holes in the heart of galaxies – and because of this the population of black holes has escalated to giddy heights. The consensus science is actually overloaded with black holes, so much so they are thought to inhabit every galaxy and they are said to munch up any matter that comes too close.

Mersini-Houghton appears to have sprung a leak in the Big Pop in the sky theory. Some scientists think it all began with a singularity that expanded as a result of the Big Bang. If singularities do not exist how did the pop get into the bang?
