An open problem in general relativity has been to construct an asymptotically flat solution to a reasonable Einstein-matter system containing a black hole and yet causally geodesically complete to the past, containing no white holes. We construct such a solution in this paper-in fact a family of such solutions, stable in a suitable sense-where matter is described by a self-gravitating scalar field.
