  1. Full Title:Escaping Gravity's Clutches: Information Could Escape from Black Holes After All, Study Suggests

    Science News

    New research by scientists at the University of York gives a fresh perspective on the physics of black holes. Black holes are objects in space that are so massive and compact they were described by Einstein as "bending" space. Conventional thinking asserts that black holes swallow everything that gets too close and that nothing can escape, but the study by Prof. Samuel Braunstein and Dr. Manas Patra suggests that information could escape from black holes after all.

    I remember reading a research paper somewhere, which said that black holes evaporates overtime and may well totally disappear.
