Stephen Hawking took the floor today at the Hawking Radiation conference to explain his latest idea about how quantum-mechanical information can escape being lost in a black hole. The presentation was made today during the Hawking Radiation conference being held at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.
Hawking is in town for a weeklong conference on the information loss paradox, which was organized by UNC Physicist Laura Mersini-Houghton. She assembled 32 of the world’s leading physicists on the campus of KTH Royal Institute of Technology. The Hawking Radiation conference is co-sponsored by Nordita, UNC and the Julian Schwinger Foundation. Nordita is co-hosted by KTH and Stockholm University.
