Black Holes

  1. Jul 27, 2004 #1
    Steven Hawking's / MKaku. Who's right about Black Holes?

    Does Prof. Steven Hawking's revised Theory of Black Holes rule out the existence of parallel universes? What about the Two Big Bang Theory by Dr. Raj Baldev, what implications does this theory have for M Theory.

    No. It removes the need for a particular type of parallel universe - one where the stuff falling into a BH ends up. But many other theories also invoke parallel universes. His concession means nothing for the Many Worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics, for example.

    Science fiction writers need not panic, yet. And in the end, it is after all only the opinion of one man which has changed...
