Do black holes qualify as still being any kind of star?
Black holes leak Hawking radiation, so, in a sense, they can be said to shine.
Good to know . . . and thanks to both Smalde and talideon for the replies. I'd forgotten that I'd asked that question.
Well... only in a way. Many stars when they "die" convert into black holes, while some others don't. So you can say that black holes are made out of stars, but than so do we.
Kaj la Death Star? Ĉu tio ankaŭ brilas? (Iu bezonas demandi la gravajn demandojn!)
