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

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

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