Description

I describe an extension of the Schwarzschild metric that describes matter collapsing into a black hole and then bouncing out of a white hole. The metric is locally, but not globally, isomorphic to the Kruskal extension, and has a compact internal region where a violation of the Einstein equations mimics quantum effects. The metric may describe an actual black hole explosion.
