Stephen Hawking: ‘There is no heaven; it’s a fairy story’
In an exclusive interview with the Guardian, the cosmologist shares his thoughts on death, M-theory, human purpose and our chance existence
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.

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.
Stephen Hawking asks big questions about the universe
Professor Stephen Hawking asks some Big Questions about our universe — How did the universe begin? How did life begin? Are we alone? — and discusses how we might go about answering them.
Stephen Hawking’s scientific investigations have shed light on the origins of the cosmos, the nature of time and the ultimate fate of universe. His bestselling books for a general audience have given an appreciation of physics to millions
