Black holes should be redefined, says Stephen Hawking in new paper

Black holes dont actually exist in the way we traditionally think of them, renowned physicist Stephen Hawking has proposed in a short but potentially revolutionary paper. Classical theory holds that no energy or information can ever escape a black hole, but the principles of quantum physics suggest it can. In the paper, Information Preservation and Weather Forecasting for Black Holes, Dr. Hawking proposes a solution to this paradox: instead of devouring information and energy permanently, black holes release it back into the universe in a garbled, unrecognizable form. Traditionally, black holes were thought to contain an event horizon, a sharp boundary beyond which even light cannot escape the gravitational pull of the black holes infinitely dense core.
