Cosmic censorship hypothesis  is a major unsolved problem in classical general relativity. According to this hypothesis singularities occurring in generic space-times should not be naked. This means that there should not be singularities to the future of a regular initial surface that are visible to observers at infinity A mathematically precise statement of the hypothesis is that a space-time should be future asymptotically predictable from a partial Cauchy surface ( p. 310).
