Falling into a black hole is not the end, says Stephen Hawking
Interstellar was right. Falling into a black hole is not the end, Professor Stephen Hawking has claimed.
Although physicists had assumed that all matter must be destroyed by the huge gravitational forces of a black hole, Hawking told delegates in Sweden that it could escape and even pop into another dimension.
The theory solves the 'information paradox' which has puzzled scientists for decades. While quantum mechanics says that nothing can ever be destroyed, general relativity says it must be. However, under Hawking's new theory, anything that is sucked into a black hole is effectively trapped at the event horizon - the sphere surrounding the hole from which it was thought that nothing can escape. And he claims that anything which fell in could re-emerge back into our universe, or a parallel one, through Hawking radiation - protons which manage to escape from the black hole because of quantum fluctuations. "If you feel you are in a black hole, don't give up, there's a way out," Hawking told an audience held at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. In Interstellar, Cooper, played by Matthew McConaughey, plunges into the black hole, Gargantura. As Cooper's ship breaks apart in the force, he evacuates and ends up in a Tesseract - a four dimensional cube. He eventually makes it out of the black hole. Black holes are stars that have collapsed under their own gravity, producing such extreme forces that even light cannot escape.
