Black holes ‘not eternal prisons’ Stephen Hawking suggests

Renowned physicist Stephen Hawking continues to make waves at 73. Now he has proposed that information can, in fact, exit a black hole.

In fact, Hawking believes that escape from a black hole, “to possibly come out in another universe.”

Hawking believes that such a trip is possible if the black hole is rotating. Of course, he also believes that one couldn’t come back to one’s own universe. Which is why he isn’t keen to try the trip himself.

“If you feel you are in a black hole, don’t give up,” the famously witty scientist concluded. “There is a way out.”
