How Scientists Are Making ‘Sonic’ Black Holes in a Lab

Hawking radiation, which is particles predicted by Stephen Hawking that are emitted by black holes, are at the center of a huge debate among physicists. Unfortunately, we’ve only recently been able to take a black hole’s picture, let alone study the quantum particles it might be giving off. So for clues on how real black […]
