Can someone give me a Pop science explanation of what do strings and Branes have got to do with black hole entropy.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The no of degrees of freedom or the no of microstates of the black hole corresponding to a given macrostate is given by exp(S),where S is entropy of black hole which is related to area of event horizon.

So how do you count microstates of black hole using these extended objects?
