Stephen Hawking theory to solve the paradox of black holes

This is a theory that could solve a riddle of physical capital modern. Meeting in Stockholm from August 24 to 29, astrophysicists around the world are currently working on black holes and their consequences. Among them, the Briton Stephen Hawking Tuesday presented a new theory can solve the paradox of specific information about the black hole paradox, he himself had demonstrated in 1976.

Everything First, remember that the black hole, which typically forms after the collapse of a star is a celestial body so dense that its gravitational field – extremely powerful – prevents all matter and all light from escaping (d Hence the black), or information about the particles absorbed by the black hole and integrated into it should disappear with the final evaporation of black holes. This is not possible according to the postulates of quantum mechanics imply that the information should always be preserved. Hence the paradox.

Information returned to the horizon

Thus, Stephen Hawking says that if black holes exception to this rule of quantum mechanics, then it is our understanding of physics and even the time that collapse. This is why scientific advances the idea that the information does not disappear with black holes because it is simply not stored in them. Remains to know what happened to the information.

For Stephen Hawking, it could be on the edge of the black hole in its “horizon”. “Information on incoming particles are returned [to the horizon], says the researcher. But in a chaotic and useless form. For all practical purposes, the information is lost.” He explained that the phenomenon means burning an encyclopedia: the information is there, among the ashes, but impossible to use. This theory makes it possible to resolve the information paradox and promises much debate within the Astrophysics circles.
