StumbleUpon has struck again with this curiously interesting article on Black Holes. While I have some quantum physics background (okay, so even ‘some’ may be an exaggeration) I found this article easy to read and written for the lay person. So fret not, clicking on the above link will not turn your brain to musch with strange greek symbols galore.
Instead it opens up with a story and proceeds to go through the history of what we know of black holes. Then your stuck in the modern world of how information actually can leave or ‘evaporate’ from a black hole. I know perhaps my writing skills are not as formidable as the author’s however I encourage you nonetheless to have a read. Good stuff
