Stephen Hawking Claims Black Holes Are Gateway To Another Universe

Stephen Hawking Claims Black Holes Are Gateway To Another Universe

According to a new theory from astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, humans can escape from the irresistible pull of a black hole by traversing the event horizon into another universe entirely. "The existence of alternative histories with black holes suggests this might be possible,” Hawking said at a Stockholm event.

"The hole would need to be large and if it was rotating it might have a passage to another universe. But you couldn’t come back to our universe. So although I’m keen on space flight, I’m not going to try that." Humans might also appear as a ghost image or an extraterrestrial hologram hovering on the edge of the super-dense abyss, Hawking said. The theoretical information might be preserved like a frame grab of their passage into another dimension or parallel universe.

"If you feel you are in a black hole, don’t give up," Hawking said. "There’s a way out."
