No need to cower in terror while waiting for some Gama rays on it's way to fry you
Oh p*sh. Spoilsport. I was getting all exited about being fried and was even considering going large. Not even just a teensy weensy bit of terror, pretty please?
Tell me however. I am getting more and more perplexed by what seems to be a bit of a conundrum. A black hole sooks everything in and is so strong even light cannot escape. Yet it belches? How so?
What about Hawking radiation?
Hawking radiation is black body radiation that is predicted to be emitted by black holes,due to quantum effects near the event horizon. It is named after the physicist Stephen Hawking, who provided a theoretical argument for its existence in 1974, and sometimes also after Jacob Bekenstein, who predicted that black holes should have a finite, non-zero temperature and entropy.[
bold by me.
