According to Hawking Radiation, a black hole if left alone will eventually evaporate. As the black hole loses mass the area of the event horizon shrinks until both are gone.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The Hologram Theory says that as matter falls past the event horizon all the information pertaining to that matter is stored at the even horizon.

So here's my question, what happens to the information stored on the even horizon as the black hole evaporates. I presume that the Hawking Radiation carries it away, but I fail to see how there's a relationship between the radiation and the information stored.

My understanding of all this comes from watching Nova and reading Scientific American so I could be missing something basic. Thanks in advance!
