Stephen Hawking, the 70 year old greatest living physicist of the universe, has identified his biggest mistake. Only Hawking can get away with saying that, strictly speaking, there are no black holes in our universe.
Scientists at the University of York say they've dispelled the so-called firewall paradox which suggests that anything falling into a black hole would be burned up as it crossed the event horizon.
Astronomers have for the first time observed the event horizon of a black hole - the region where its pull is so strong that nothing, not even light, can escape.
Scientists are working on a pioneering scheme to view the massive black hole at the center of our galaxy.
