Obsessed by the improvements of StarTrek and the fourth millennium, while feeling restricted by the limits of today's technology or that boring second law of thermodynamics? Just let your imagination flow - you needn't be Scotty to beam your thoughts in here!

I have read that when stars (like our sun) burn up all their hydrogen, then they start burning up their helium, and then flare up into red giants, and when they are out of all their fuel, they then shrink and whatever matter remains gets compressed so that the resulting black holes have massive amounts of matter, at enormous density and hence exert great gravitational force. (Please forgive me for any glaring factual errors in describing this process).

My point is, if we understand this process reasonably, can we not try to simulate such a process in our labs to get the equivalent of not-so-big black holes? These black holes could be used to exert enormous gravity and probably find use in some new applications, or at least help us in understanding the behaviurs of natural black holes better.

There's only the problem of making a nuclear fusion for the tiny sun you want to make the black hole with
