I read the page and was pretty dubious myself, although I don't have the balls to say what Stephen did. From this page: Dr. Raj Baldev said in his book that Black Holes suck and destroy the material on one hand, recycles it and then ejects the material so violently in the space that they ultimately form stars and planets therefrom. After about 9 months from the release of the book of Dr. Raj Baldev, Stephen Hawking, one of the noted authorities on Black Hole changed his idea about the Black Hole. Hawking was of the firm opinion that nothing could escape from the Black Hole, not even light and nothing could come out of it. But in July 2004, at 17th International Conference on General Relativity and Gravitation in Dublin, he admitted his mistake that he was wrong for thirty years. Hawking wrong about "nothing could escape black holes"? Has the writer never heard of Hawking radiation? Hawking began writing about black holes evaporating as far back as the 1970s. Was it not the result of Dr. Raj Baldev's new hypothesis on Black Hole? No. Since Hawking did not mention the credit of his changing mind in his new research, the lawyer of the Publisher of the book of Dr. Raj Baldev served upon a legal notice on Stephen Hawking, on which he offered no comments. This issue remained on net for about a year, which the author ignored and decided not to move the court keeping in view his personal respect for Stephen Hawking. Well, why isn't there (if this is the case) a lot of condemnation on the net of Dr. Baldev? I hope that it is not out of sensitivity to his and his supporters' feelings. Also, I can't help but wonder if Dr. Baldev isn't trying to justify the Hindu theories that examine ages of the universe far, far greater than mere billions of years. > How does anyone get information? Does the acquisition of information > always take some form of "work"? It would indeed seem to me that if System A obtains information (from outside System A), then work must be performed. That is, I lack the imagination or the knowledge to see how in the simplest case I can think of, a traveling photon that crosses the boundary of System A and leaves a record can do no work.
