A lab-grown black hole may prove Stephen Hawking’s most challenging theory

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

The experiment, which was created using a single-coil string of atoms to simulate a black hole’s event horizon, added more evidence to Hawking’s theory that black holes should emit a faint glow of radiation from hypothetical particles that randomly appear into existence near their boundaries. . Moreover, 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 November 8 in the journal Physical Review Research.
