Paradox no more?: Black hole information loss

Physicist may have finally cracked the black hole information loss paradox that has befuddled physicists for the past 40 years, according to an article accepted for publication by Physical Review D, which concludes that that an outside observer can never lose objects down a black hole.Case Western Reserve University physicists Tanmay Vachaspati, Dejan Stojkovic and Lawrence M. Krauss came to this conclusion after spending a year working on complex formulas to calculate the formation of new black holes.

It’s complicated and very complex,” noted the researchers, regarding both the general problem and their particular approach to try to solve it.

The question that the physicists set out to solve is: “what happens once something collapses into a black hole?”
