Is that the times original headline? If so it's completely ridiculous.
Although if a ny times reporter or its editorial staff were willing to take a trip to a harmless black hole, I'd chip in a few bucks for the ride.
always wondered what happens when a singularity gets "full"
Odd that this coincides with the apparent retrieval of information from Sandy Berger's pants. A new universal constant?
|"If you jump into a black hole, your mass energy will be returned to our universe, but in a mangled form, which contains the information about what you were like, but in an unrecognizable state."
Hawking lends theortical support to the theory I've been working on about Michael Moore. It's been obvious for some time that Michael Moore is an over-sized mass that consumes everything around him. But the problem was explaining how such a thing could radiate bogus information.
I'm glad Hawking did this, because I'm not very good at math.
Also the BLack Hole could be that empty space where a normal human heart would be; but in their case its become VERY darkened by evil.
When you look out into space, and you see a black hole, you are looking up the exit pipe, so to speak, of an item that is departing from your frame of reference, at a speed exceeding that of light.
In a similar vein, what is called a collapsing star, is a star born anew in another time zone. While we watch it collapse, some guy in the other time zone is watching it appear and can't wait to name it for himself.
Intergalactic intellectual property trial lawyers are foaming at the bit and can't wait to profit from these disputes.
information about what happens inside some volume of space is somehow encoded on the surface of its boundary
Well now that's interesting, because all of what you see, what appears to be the volume of your space, is also the surface.
Everything that we see, is the surface of the volume of our space, what we call our universe.
There may or may not be a beach ball perimeter to it, but that is not the surface; it is only part of the surface.
A black hole is a hole in the surface.
So, in layman's terms black holes are not transportation tubes, they are garbage disposals?
Afew months ago there was news that Hawking had been hospitalized with some injuries and he would not state how they were caused. There was speculation that he was being physically abused by the woman he lives with. Apparently he hasn't lost it though.
So...will my car start tommorrow morning?
Will the raisins in my Raisin Bran be plump and juicy?
Or...is my entire life now ruined by this news?
