Information paradox simplified

Juan Maldacena
Juan Maldacena is an Argentinean mathematician. He claimed to have a rigorous mathematical explanation of what happened to information in black holes. According to him, the information was not lost.

Hawking believes that information is. lost in black holes.
But, it seems that Hawking has conceded defeat by saying that information can escape from a black hole and therefore is not lost.
 
 
Part 1 – The Hawking Paradox – BBC Horizon
Hawking shot to fame in the world of physics when he provided a mathematical proof for the Big Bang theory. This theory showed that the entire universe exploded from a singularity, an infinitely small point with infinite density and infinite gravity. Hawking was able to come to his proof using mathematical techniques that had been developed by Roger Penrose. These techniques were however developed to deal not with the beginning of the Universe but with black holes.
