Black Holes: Maybe There Is a Way Out After All

Black holes, those fearsome galactic traps from which not even light can escape, may not be quite so terminally destructive after all, according to cosmologist Stephen Hawking.
The author of “A Brief History of Time” now believes some “information” sucked into black holes escapes over time, contradicting some of his most famous work on the phenomenon.
Hawking will present his latest findings at a scientific conference in Ireland next week, New Scientist magazine said, after asking at the last minute to speak.
