Wild Theory Suggests Heavy Metals Came From Parasitic Black Holes

If you were to rank the wildest things in the universe, there are a few obvious contenders. Gamma rays, fast radio bursts and quasars, for example. But no list would be complete without black holes and the black hole's less-dense cousins, the neutron star. These hyper-compressed things can do some mind-boggling warping to the shape of space itself. So, what happens if one were to eat the o
