That is kind of an odd figure. The Schwarzchild radius for 10 grams is  
approximately 1.5*10^-29 meters. So does this mean that every  
collapsing star creates a new universe on the way to becoming a black  
hole? Or does it have to be a very small amount of matter like   
literally 10 grams or close to it?
