Can’t find any detailed sources on this yet apart from a very brief snippet in the Irish Times. Prof. Hawking gave his speech in Dublin yesterday removing the paradox that he was responsible for creating. It now seems as though black holes are no longer a theoretical pinpoint of infinite density in space but rather a window exposing all that has been consumed by them. Quantum fluctuations on the ‘surface’ of the black hole are said to give brief glimpses of all that exists within. What this can tell us about the past, present and future will take some time to discover but it’s damn exciting anyway!
