Is Hawking Radiation inherently unimportant?

  1. Jun 12, 2012 #1
    I know their is a theoretical answere to this or else the theory would have no traction...

    If a black hole emits a partical at a high speed, wouldn't logic say that the black holes immense gravity simply pull it back in? Also, what kind/size particle is theorized to eject?

    You completely misunderstand Hawking Radiation. I suggest you read up on it and THEN if you have questions, please ask.

    The link that Chronos provided is a more recent study, but will likely just confuse you if you don't read first read about the radiation as Hawking presented it.
