Impenetrability of the Schwarzschild Sphere in a Lorentz Non-Invariant Theory of Gravity
Recently a bimetric theory of gravity has been developed by Rosen1,2, with the aim of removing some of the singularities that are present in the usual general relativity theory. In particular, solving the field equations of the bimetric theory in the case of a static and spherically symmetric source, Rosen finds an interesting generalization of the Schwarzschild space-time, in which the interior of the Schwarzschild sphere r=2m is unphysical and impenetrable for particles and light-rays1,2.
