The theory of Stephen Hawking developed in 1974 on black holes back in the news. An experiment carried out by an Israeli physicist gave him new sustainability.
Jeff Steinhauer, the Israeli physicist who brought again to the fore one of the oldest theories about black holes, decided to mobilize all the technological resources to artificially reproduce this mysterious element that today still ignores almost everything.
The process involved the creation of an acoustic black hole that may have proved that black holes lose mass, the so-called Hawking radiation.
To approach as much as possible than you think to be the real structure of a black hole, Steinhauer cooled sound waves at the lowest possible temperature and then heated them with lasers.
After this process was found that small particles escaping sound, which indicates that the substance can escape to the powerful attraction of a black hole.
The Israeli physicist said in an interview with Business Insider that “the reason why people are interested in black holes and the Hawking radiation is not to learn more about black holes but to test the new laws of physics.” Steinhauer regards this experience was a “good step to try to understand what these new laws of physics.”
