Lab-grown black hole may prove Stephen Hawking’s most challenging theory right

Scientists have created a lab-grown analogue of a black hole to test one of Stephen Hawking’s most famous theories – and it’s behaving exactly as he predicted.

The experiment, created by using a single-file chain of atoms to simulate the event horizon of a black hole, added further evidence to Hawking’s theory that black holes should emit a faint glow of radiation from virtual particles that appear randomly near their borders. . In addition, the researchers found that most of the light particles, or photons, should be produced around the edges of the cosmic monsters. The team published their findings Nov. 8 in the journal Physical Review Research.
