Latest Black hole information paradox Stories
This month, Oxford’s wheelchair-bound conqueror of the cosmos turns 71. In honor of a life dedicated to the advance of science – both in the theoretical realm as well as in public discourse – redOrbit sifted through some 30 years of books, magazine articles, interviews and speeches to bring you the choicest selection of Stephen Hawking quotes on topics as diverse as God, aliens, philosophy and the nature of space and time.
A team of UBC physicists and engineers have designed an experiment featuring a trough of flowing water to help bolster a 35-year-old theory proposed by eminent physicist Stephen Hawking.
Physicists at Penn State have provided a mechanism by which information can be recovered from black holes, those regions of space where gravity is so strong that, according to Einstein's theory of general relativity, not even light can escape. The team's findings pave the way toward ending a decades-long debate sparked by renowned physicist Steven Hawking. The team's work will be published in the 20 May 2008 issue of the journal Physical Review Letters.
Scientists have established that quantum information cannot be â€˜hiddenâ€™ in conventional ways, or in Braunsteinâ€™s words, "quantum information can run but it canâ€™t hide." This result gives a surprising new twist to one of the great mysteries about black holes.
