Hawking radiation: Sounds like the light idea

SOME sciences are observational. Some are experimental. But there are often times when practitioners of the former wish they could do the latter. So it is with those who study black holes.

Black Holes Exist. So Does Bad Science

The press jumped on a new paper that claims that black holes can’t ever form. In the new paper, the authors claim that if you include Hawking radiation, the emission of particles from a black hole's surface, the extra contribution is enough to stop gravitational ...

If black holes don't exist, what would be at the center of our galaxy?

Black holes have been inspiration for science-fiction stories since before they had actually been given a name. In a recent turn of events, however, it is being reported that a scientist has now discovered that black holes in fact do not actually exi ... [Published Examiner.com - Sep 26 2014]

Quotes

...that further experiments could either reproduce Hawking's black-body radiation or provide important insights into why it cannot be simulated. "In that sense, this is one of the biggest advances in Hawking-radiation studies that there has been since the beginning" he says
...as it stands is not a perfect match, William Unruh, theoretical physicist at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver points out that "it is the closest anyone has come to detecting Hawking radiation."
"Showing that the effect occurs in a Bose-Einstein condensate does not prove it would occur in black holes," Unruh says. "However, it sure increases my confidence that it does. The mathematics and the results are too similar to just be a coincidence."
...the closest anyone has come," William Unruh, one of the researchers that first proposed the acoustic black hole experiment, told New Scientist . "It is of course clear that black holes differ from flowing BECs, and showing that the effect occurs in a BEC does not prove it would occur in black holes. However, it sure increases my confidence that it does. The mathematics and the results are too similar to just be a coincidence."
