Hawking's new paper - no BH, no EH

  1. Jan 24, 2014 #1
    2013 AUG Paper - Hawking

    "...gravitational collapse produces apparent horizons but no event horizons behind which information is lost."

    "The absence of event horizons mean that there are no black holes - in the sense of regimes
    from which light can't escape to ininity."

    Its not a good idea to pay attention to only two sentences of a paper!
    It should be figured out that why Hawking wrote those sentences.

    It would also help if you provided a link to the paper so that we could read it as well.
