        Discovering Hawking Radiation | Hawking

        One of Stephen Hawking's most astounding discoveries, later deemed "Hawking Radiation," uprooted the modern understanding of black holes and astrophysics. Hawking believed that black holes, just like any other hot celestial body, radiate particles into space-a theory that implies the possibility that a black hole may eventually disappear. The findings were first met with outrage, but have since revolutionized the way scientists understand physics, unifying three theories of relativity, quantum theory, and thermodynamics into a comprehensive understanding of the universe thought impossible before Stephen Hawking's realization.
