    Megaton BH hits proton

    A million ton black hole has a lifetime of centuries, so is stable for this supposition
    Suppose it hits a proton. It's radius is about an attometer, while the proton's is about a femtometer.
    Does the proton break up in some way? Does it all go down at once? What happens?

    Quantum mechanics meets gravity. New science required.

    But given that the Hawking luminosity of such an object is measured in 100s of terawatts (the equivalent of a several Hiroshima bombs per second), I thinking getting the proton anywhere near the black hole might be a challenge.
