Post Do black holes ever die ?   Posted on: Wed Nov 22, 2006 10:42 pm
I read several articles explaining that how black holes came to be.. however do they ever "dissapear" or just go away ? or will space in the end only have endless black holes ?

Hello, Shaun,

as far as I personally know or understand it Stephen Hawking concluded from Quantum Physics that theoretically Black Holes should evaporate. It has to do with quantum fluctuations at the event horizon if I remeber correct.

At the event horizon pairs of particles of matter and anti-matter are forming like elsewhere in the universe. The antimatter-particles fall into the Black Hole where they annihilate with matter-particles already being in the Black Hole while the matter particles forming with them are moving away.

Of course I may be remembering wrong. The matter-particles moving away might be the Hawkin-radiation.
