Latest Hawking radiation Stories
If most physicists claimed that the popular notion of black holes as event horizons from which light cannot escape is wrong, they would be almost immediately dismissed (and possibly even scoffed at). However, when Stephen Hawking makes such an assertion, the scientific community stands up and takes notice.
In an article published in the PNAS scientific journal, researchers from Aalto University and the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland showed experimentally that vacuum has properties not previously observed.
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.
Speakers include Nobel laureate and winner of new $3 million physics prize
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.
A team of Italian scientists has fired a laser beam into a hunk of glass to create what they believe is an optical analogue of the Hawking radiation that many physicists expect is emitted by black holes.
Despite their popularity in the science fiction genre, there is much to be learned about black holes, the mysterious regions in space once thought to be absent of light.
TUCSON, Ariz., Aug. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- The basis of Christianity is the teachings of Jesus Christ. This is an undisputed fact. While they have been passed through time in many forms and incarnations, the settings and text have remained unchanged. "The Man and a Boy" (published by iUniverse) by Dr.
Renowned cosmologist Stephen Hawking will retire from his prominent Cambridge University position at the end of the academic year in September, but plans to continue his study of space and time, the university said Friday.
Here's what didn't happen on Sept. 10th: The world did not end. Switching on the world's largest and most powerful particle accelerator near Geneva, Switzerland, did not trigger the creation of a microscopic black hole.
Black Hole -- Black holes are objects so dense that not even light can escape their gravity. They are believed to form from the gravitational collapse of astronomical objects containing two or more solar masses. Astronomical observations suggest that the center of most galaxies, including our own Milky Way, contain supermassive black holes containing millions to billions of solar masses. Black holes are predictions of Einstein's theory of general relativity. In particular, they occur...
