If for some very extraordinary circumstance of life ,you manage to fall into the jaws of a black hole in space, Stephen Hawking says there is no need to panic and that there is a way out of it. Science fiction seems to be turning into reality very fast.

Did you know that most black holes form from the remnants of a large star that dies in a supernova explosion? Basically the light from such a star is unable to escape its immense gravitational pull. This is why, the star’s own light becomes trapped in orbit, and the dark star becomes known as a black holeBlack holes pull matter and even energy into themselves.

Currently, science maintains that the gravity of a black hole is so strong that nothing-not even light can escape once inside. Of course we know that in the past mainstream science has got quite a few things wrong, so it isn’t surprising.

There might be a way out of a black hole, according to Professor Hawking

There are about 100 million of them in our galaxy alone, including one-supermassive black hole that is located in the center o fur galaxy and is billions of times larger than the sun. But hey, not everything is lost, and black holes might not be so terrifying after all according to Professor Hawking, the world’s most famous astrophysicist, who has “cooked up” a new theory about black holes.

According to Hawking, “If you feel you are in a black hole, don’t give up. There’s a way out.”

When Professor Hawking theorizes, the rest of the scientific world pays great attention, because most of what we know about these cosmic devourers is thanks to him, in-fact, many concepts were named in his honor.

In a lecture at Stockholm’s KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Professor Hawking argued that disappearing into a black hole does not mean permanent disappearance. Basically, Professor Hawking theorizes that information that seems to disappear into black holes may still have a life.

For decades, the question of what happens to the information when particles pass through a black hole has intrigued scientists. The theory is that information can not be destroyed permanently, but … where does it go? In what state does it exists? Professor Hawking now believes that, this information never actually enters the black hole.

Professor Hawking said in his lecture:”I propose that the information is stored not in the interior of the black hole, as one might expect, but on its boundary: the event horizon.”

As shown in the film Interstellar, the event horizon is the boundary that delineates the point of no return. Once past that point, the black hole catches you in an eternal embrace.

According to Professor Hawking’s new idea, the 3D information of the particles is translated into a 2D hologram and “hangs” in the event horizon.

“The idea is the super translations are a hologram of the in going particles,” he said. “Thus they contain all the information that would otherwise be lost.”

According to Sabine Hossenfelder of the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics in Stockholm: “He is saying that the information is there twice already from the very beginning, so it’s never destroyed in the black hole to begin with,” she says. “At least that’s what I understood.”

“The message of this lecture is that black holes ain’t as black as they are painted. They are not the eternal prisons they were once thought,” he said. “Things can get out of a black hole both on the outside and possibly come out in another universe,” concluded Hawking.
