Stephen Hawking gave a presentation at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden, Tuesday, and dropped some new research and theories that may change the way we think about black holes, and their place in the Universe.
I'm just gonna be square with you guys: this is more than a bit above my level of comprehension. I'm not well versed in quantum mechanics, I have no idea what String Theory is, and I can only solve the most basic physics problems. But black holes are damn cool, so we should all watch the video of the presentation even though it contains references to terms like the information loss paradox and Hawking radiation. Basically, he challenges conventional black hole wisdom, claiming they might not be as dark and deadly as we previously thought.
