Einstein Was Right: Black Holes Have Event Horizon Just As Predicted By General Theory Of Relativity

Analysis of Pan-STARRS data strengthened the idea that black holes are bounded by an event horizon. How did the new research strengthen Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity?

Event Horizon Telescope May Help Solve Black Hole Information Paradox

Einstein's theory of relativity predicts that all information that crosses the event horizon will be lost, but quantum mechanics states information can never be lost. How can the Event Horizon Telescope help solve the black hole information paradox?

Physicists Demonstrate What Occurs When Black Holes Collide In Simple Equation

A supermassive black hole will have no trouble sucking in objects in space, including a much smaller black hole. Theoretical physicists have come up with a simpler equation to demonstrate the moment the two black holes’ event horizons meet.
