Even Light Cannot Escape A Black Hole


Hawking discovered that black holes release particles at a steady rate (Hawking radiation).

His theory argues that space is filled with particles and antiparticles. They’re in a constant process of bonding, separating, and then annihilating one another.

The complex interaction of these pairs with black holes—particularly when partners are separated by the event horizon—causes black holes to lose mass, shrink, and eventually disappear.
