Seems Stephen Hawking is revising his theories about black holes. I saw a report about it on the news yesterday (6/15/04) and just found this link:
"The space bodies have mystified scientists for decades now, and in 1976, Hawking had caused ripples by his theory of "Hawking Radiation," which
suggested that in black holes, the rules of quantum physics work differently and that they radiate energy.
According to the report, Hawking has now said that once black holes form, they effectively start to "evaporate" away, losing mass in the process,
due to which they eventually break open and release the information that fell inside it."
He'll be presenting a paper next week in Dublin, Ireland on his findings - according to the above article.
