A Conversation With James Fox
"James thank you very much for joining us today. From you on the show we could stop with you telling us about how you got into documentary filmmaking and specifically how you got into the erie of few documentaries that would take us back to the early. Nineteen nineties where. I had a father who was paralyzed from the neck down with multiple sclerosis and he was a writer and in. So i've been traveling. He was a fantastic to larry's driven ambitious intelligent witty. Great fun guy. We traveled the world together. I was his legs. Is schommer is secretaries nurse. With a lot of fun. We interviewed. Stephen hawking we interviewed race cartilage legend. Dan gurney traveled to formula one races down in mexico city. I mean we did some really cool stuff and my my father was a brilliant writer. I was always amazed at how could put words together and So good at it. Got such a skill and i had picked up probably in the late eighties very early. Ninety certainly the late eighties early nineties. A video camera from a friend of mine. And i was so a amazed at the technology of steve instant. The did was take back then. But the instant playback it's like you know it was amazing. It was a real novelty back then and and what a great tool it was for documenting things and so i started doing video production. You know probably my very early twenties and Probably i dunno. I want to say when i was around. Twenty three twenty four a very good high school friend of mine. One of my best friends. One of my best mates we We bought a car length. We flew to europe from america. We bought a car in london. And we drove this old fiat. One thirty one doors read two hundred pounds for it. We drove it all the way to added justin not just had a hell of a of adventure together and car did make it out four gold back but he was a good friend of sky rene and he started to tell me back back in the us About ufo's in one of my best friends honestly and i had. He didn't talk to me about highschool but he talked about it later in early twenties tonight. I thought he'd lost mind. I really did talking about roswell. You take your you haven't heard about roswell and i just thought well it's been a good friend and i'm gonna have to write him off. He's lost his mind and I was telling the story to a a mentor apprentice. Video production house in san francisco Ellison horn productions have been like this in this guy. Richard van sickle was was one of the senior people at the production house. The brilliant guy. I really looked up to him. And i just one day told him all. You're not gonna believe really good friend of mine is tell me about your phone and then about how you crashed and aliens were recovered in roswell back in the forties. Got my poor friend. He's lost his mind and Richard turns me and he says no. You heard about that. I said haven't heard. But no i haven't heard fully happened. He said they actually admitted that it happened. And i thought well hang on a minute. richard. Somebody i look up to and i respect and very intelligent. He runs his video production company. And i thought well if richard thinks that happened. Maybe i should take a closer look. And so i did. And i went to a couple of conferences and i Befriended some military guys basically exchanged offered an exchange of of documenting them and making you know Making their interviews available to the public and documenting presentations and things of that nature in in exchange. They kind of brought me into their world. Bit and then I think when i was twenty four maybe twenty five. I said hey. I'm a documentary on your phones. And i was amazed at how not unsupportive. My father was because my father was
Covid Milestones: Eli Lilly CEO on Antiviral Approval & Pfizers FDA Application
"Corona virus cases are hitting new highs in the united states and the cdc is urging the country to keep thanksgiving celebrations small. The recommending americans spend the holiday only with people who've been living in their households for the last fourteen days which means no military personnel. Who plant to come home and no college students back from campus. And this week amid it. All california governor gavin newsom issued a curfew between ten pm and five am for all nonessential work and gatherings in most of the state and the order will remain in place until at least december twenty first perhaps even longer but some good news today as well visor and its partner. Biontech are submitting their obligation to the fda for emergency use authorization of their covid nineteen vaccine. This would be the first covid vaccine that goes through the regulatory process. Here's becky the fda's review process is expected to take a few weeks. Advisory committee meeting on the vaccine is tentatively scheduled for early next month. If it's approved some americans could get their first doses in just about a month's time earlier this week study. Data analysis showed this vaccine to be ninety five percents effective and that's incredibly impressive. Let's bring in meg. Terrell she's got more on this good morning. Good morning becky moving incredibly fast and a really historic milestone this morning the first vaccine to go to the fda for covid nineteen to try to stop this pandemic. So we're going to see this regulatory process. Really play out over the coming weeks. We should here typically the way this works is the company alerts the world when the fda has accepted an application and set a date to decide on the drug. We're in a pandemic of course so those dates are not going to be normal. And the communications might be different to we. Might hear from the fda Either the decision timing that they might be looking at and especially about when they're gonna set that advisory committee meeting to discuss this vaccine. That's when outside advisers get together dig apart all of the data around The vaccine the safety the efficacy the manufacturing and talk about also how this should potentially be approved for the market. And it's possible. We will see an application from dern. They said within weeks So we should see that soon. Too and so the expectation that i heard was that the fda had asked those outside advisors to set aside december eighth ninth and tenth three days to potentially discuss. Both vaccines Now dr john taurus from nbc had the fda commissioners steven hahn said scott gottlieb. Stephen hawking on with him yesterday in a facebook live. He asked him about those dates. Any no he said. The fda was going to be flexible. He wouldn't confirm that they had asked them to set those dates. And so we have been hearing since we reported those dates a lot of people sort of saying. Why is this going to take so long So we will have to wait to see what the empty actually does In terms of scheduling that meeting. They do need time to go through the application themselves very carefully. Prepare the documents the committee and then the committee will discuss it and we do expect the fda decide extremely quickly after that meeting Whether to green light this market and then pfizer in biontech. Say they are ready to go within hours after that That green light to start shipping. This guy's yeah. That was one of the things that really caught my attention this morning. The idea that within hours they'd be ready to start shipping vaccine and getting it out there and that brings up the question of how we do that. How do we distribute this. Where does it go. How do we determine who gets it. I never the states have been working on plans along with the federal government to try and figure out how much each state would get. But how does it work. We do even know. Do we have a real game plan for who gets what. When and how we know part of that. So operation warp speed an eighty just secretary alex as are held. A briefing about those plans are earlier. This week And essentially what would happen after. The fda gives the green light if it does then. The cdc has an advisory committee as well that would meet to make recommendations about. Who should get this vaccine. I if there are two vaccines if there are any differences in them you know which groups should get which dosing of that stuff So that's expected to happen extremely quickly. And then the cdc makes recommendations about how much each state should get Secretaries are based on population. We also know of course that because supply will be so limited that there are going to be prioritized groups. Healthcare workers are expected to be at the top People with underlying health conditions that make them more severe. More vulnerable to severe disease will also be at the top so We'll see how that gets allocated to the states based on what. The group recommends
Stephen Hawking's family donates his ventilator to UK hospital
"The family of Stephen Hawking says moving to help in the corona virus pandemic hawking's family donated the ventilator he used to help treat patients at the royal Papworth hospital in Cambridge that's where hawking who spent most of his life in a wheelchair and spoke using the computer speech synthesizer was treated during his life hawking's daughter Lucy says the family wanted to help treat those suffering from the corona virus and reached out to the hospital to offer help the hospital has doubled its critical care capacity because of cold at nineteen and hawking's ventilator has been added to the extra equipment brought in to treat the most seriously ill
What time is it?
"We're GONNA talk about time. Most states in the United States south time changes spring forward set clocks forward in the spring fall back set clocks EXPEC then you have time zones across the United States and around the world fly far enough and you'll lose a day or gain a day depending upon which way you're going when you perform perform the same activities of over and over the day seemed to fly by or drag depending on the activities for your day with new activities for the day may fly even faster faster. Depends upon who you talk to. There was a time in my life when I worked with people. WOM One and with some clients I would look up at the clock and watch a hand and the clock move from one block bark to another would seem like ours would pass and I look at the clock again only to see that it had just been a minute. Ah Yes perception. But what about time. Slips time warms is time travel possible to Great Luminaries Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking gave us. It's a simple answer. Yes but the conversation on time travel is filled with what is exactly. What did Einstein have to say about time travel? I'm Stein's theory of special relativity says that time slows down or speeds up depending upon. How fast you move relative to something else? Approaching the speed of light person inside a spaceship would age much slower than his twin at home. Also under Einstein's theory of general relativity. Nobody gravity can bend time picture. Four dimensional fabric called space time when anything that has mass sits on that piece of fabric it causes a dimple or bending of space time the bending of space time causes objects to move on a curved path and that curvature of space is what we know as gravity both the general and special relativity theories have been proven with GPS satellite techniques. That has very very accurate timepieces on board the effects of gravity as well as the satellites increased speed from Earth relative to observers on the ground make the unadjusted clocks gained. Thirty eight microseconds today. Who Thirty Eight microseconds does sound like much of a time change to me? Let's let's continue here engineers make calibrations to account for the difference in a sense. This effect called time. dilation means astronauts nonce were time travellers as return to earth very very slightly younger than there are identical twin the remains on the planet. What did Stephen Hawkins' I have to say? About time. Travel Hawking famously held a party for time travellers but did not send out the patients until after the party. No one showed for the festivities but the scientists right that there is still hope the traveling back in time could be possible according to the laws of the universe he pigs is this notion on the premise of something called m theory that suggests the universe may contain seven hidden dimensions in addition into the familiar four dimensions of space time rapid space travel and travel back in time can't be ruled out. According to our present understanding he writes. This is hawking. Science fiction fans need not lose heart. There's hope in theory you have to look hockey's M theory it's a little too long and complex likes for this podcast. There's a lesser known theory about time travel. Though is commonly referred to as the step theory it takes into account that theories expressed grasp both hawking and Einstein. They're multiple dimensions. The step theory states that although there are multiple dimensions they are parallel. Exactly to who are on that some run ahead of ours and some behind and there are umbilical warburton holes or the dimensions overlap further. That many of us unknowingly walked through these openings periodically the Dacia Fu is an example one. Conventional Science Science can't explain that is stepping into a dimension that is slightly ahead of your own. You know the feeling that you've been to displace before or met this person before or even particular activity before but that most of us shake off the feeling as being just a little strange whatever theory you embrace. It's is fairly realistic to state that in the next not too distant future we maybe stepping forward or backward and Thomas easily stepping onto an escalator skeptical. It wasn't that long ago that the concept of traveling in space let alone landing on the moon was stuff of fiction and the greatest scientific minds signs of that era declared the idea ridiculous impossibility. That's sad a little less than fifteen hours ago. I stepped into the future where I sit now.
Electronic Mind Reading
"The one thing that science will never be able to do is find a way to read our minds PT sure about that time, if our thoughts are actually patterns of activity in the brain. It's at least possible that neuroscientists could find a way to detect and decode them zones, really hard, if not impossible. Well in twenty nineteen researchers made important progress towards the skull. They placed a grid of over one hundred recording electrodes into the auditory cortex of the brains of patients that were undergoing brain surgery to treat epilepsy with this electrode, grid, they monitored electrical activity in the auditory cortex, while patients listened to recordings of actors reciting a series of sentences and the numbers from zero to nine join to interpret the data from more than one hundred electrodes all recording. At once sounds hopelessly. Complicated. That's why the neuroscientist used artificial intelligence to interpret the recordings. They trained a deep learning neural network computer program to use the recordings from the patient's brain to reconstruct, the content of the sentences the patients heard then they tested, the trained neural network program by asking it to reconstruct. The reading of the digits, the program was capable of reconstructing intelligible speech from the neural recordings. Let's not exactly the same as reading thoughts, but it's an important step in that direction. Scientists already know that the sensory portions of the cortex are also used for thinking imagining the technology could be useful for people like the late physicist, Stephen hawking who have difficulty communicating to serious speech, handicaps this moment of science comes from Indiana, University. I'm Don glass, and I'm ya'll Cassandra.

Why are we all so excited about the black hole image?
"There was so much excitement. This week around seeing the first picture of a black hole. Why was it deserving of so much excitement? Ferriol? I think part of it is that it's a new frontier, it's something we haven't seen before it's something that we didn't even think we could see and it's been so long in the making both the technological developments and the theoretical understanding to interpret the data. So I'm I'm really happy that everybody's excited to see the image. Shep you said in the press conference and even here on on our program that black holes are essentially unseasonable. So how do you explain what we're seeing that? We are seeing one now. Yeah. See there naked. If there's nothing around them, but black holes attract just everything around them because they're intense gravity, and they're trying to get into a small volume that it's like when you rub your hands together. They get hot all the fiction heats that guest hundreds of billions of degrees. So black holes are surrounded by these three D flashlights of this hot luminous plasma. And then there. Gravity warps the light from that plasma into these distinct shapes. You're really seeing Einstein's geometrical gravity laid bare. You're seeing just how light moves along space time yet, Einstein even though he came up with the theory about warping space that he not well, he wasn't really convinced that black holes might exist. Yeah. Got. He did struggle with that far awhile the theory. I mean, practically breaks down at the center of a black hole, it predicts a singularity an infinite space time curvature and energy density. So he was very unhappy with that. And he thought maybe there there's a reason why nature would not form. These objects talk a little bit Ferriol about the image itself. So we can explain to folks because it's it it's not quite wooded appears to be a lot more stuff going on there. And let's get right into the reddish ring of light. We're is that coming from? That is coming from right from the inner part of the accretion flow and the base of the jets so uh ship was saying as this plasma. That's the black hole gets from the stars around it swirls around and makes its way down to the black hole. It heats up and the emission that. We are seeing at this particular wavelength of light is coming from right outside of the point of no return. So there's the event or orison outside of that is the photon ring and outside of that is the the part that that truncates the disk and where where we think jets form. So the source of the light is right in the vicinity of that point of no return, and it is being lens than to the circular shape. Well, that's the that's the question I'll continue with that. Because if if it's a three dimensional image shouldn't that shouldn't it be surrounded by that glowing red, so we should? Not be seeing into it as we look straight. That's a very good question. And it's something that I with worked out twenty years ago. So part of the reason we are seeing it is because it's Taurus shaped, so it's not really completely spiritual. But even if it were we have to pick a wavelength of light that satisfies two things. One is we wanted it to be emitted right near the horizon. So it lights it up. We didn't want something that comes from farther away. But it's a double edged sword as you're saying if there's too much of that light too much of that guess then it will interfere with our ability to see down to the horizon by picking the one point three millimeter wavelength of flight. We're we have walking that tightrope. There is light that is lighting up the black hole. But it is not so much that it is actually obscuring our view to the black hole and ship. Actually, is it not true that that light that is heading toward. Toward the black hole will be bent around the back of it and come forward towards us. So it's still say's still face black that way. Yeah. It's a it's a good idea to try to hide behind the black hole because the light from me will always be bent around when in one thousand nine hundred when they looked at it affliction of light during a solar eclipse of stars to verify Einstein at first the deflation was one two thousand of a degree. And now we're looking at light that does loop two loops. So it's a completely different ballgame from that perspective. And and your Senate very, well, you have this flashlight this this light that's close to the event horizon. But not in the event, of course, and with that means that the latest Lynn's around this last photon orbit all the light grazes this last photon orbit. If it goes a little bit inside there is lost forever in the event horizon. And with that means is that we see a ring, which is a projection on this three dimensional flashlight. But then for example, if there were another civilization fail screwing the Milky Way. They would also see a ring or in eighty seven. They would see that ring to. So everybody gets to see a ring because of the Lenzing Einstein's gravity. Why? Then is some of the ring whitish seems brighter than red. Oh, it's a phenomenon that it goes from what very was saying the gas is moving around so quickly. It's a near light speeds. So when it defends all the way into this gravitational, well, it's really moving quickly. And when material moves that fast when it emits light the light is boosted energy in the direction, it's moving. So you're seeing some of the gas coming towards us from underneath the black hole. It seems like it orbits clockwise around. What you see that? And so it's bright on one side and on the other. So is it like a candle? It's hotter. As on that side to a glows brighter. Brighter. It's not so much hotter. Right. So so the color map that we've chosen is a good representation of how bright it is. So the the parts that you're seeing in a lighter color are actually the brighter parts, and that is the reason is the swirling plasma. So the half of it roughly the half that's approaching us is the sprite or emission. And the part receding from us is slightly damore. Chef you talked about that. There is still light inside the black hole. What happens to that light in their la-? Well, there's no light coming to us from the within the event horizon. But as very sad, you have gas always falling into the black hole at all levels. And it emits you really not seeing anything too much interior to the last orbit which that ring that UC everything that is in there tends to go through the event horizon. We don't see it anymore. It just disappears from our causal existence. But where does it go? Well, that's that's the interesting you Larry. Right. If anyone tells you they know don't believe them. This Stephen hawking spent his life trying to figure that out. Didn't he? Well, I. Yeah. I wanna see I think for many people in in our collaboration. It was. It was bittersweet. We lost even hawking just a little while before we made this discovery we had a chance to describe it to him a little bit which was great and wish he'd been alive to see it. Our number eight four four seven two four eight two five five we have so many phone calls. I'm going to get to them after I ask a couple more questions at a lot of people been asking of can you explain the difference between the event horizon, and you you touched on a bit the event horizon the black hole and black holes shadow. Sure, I can do that. So Geno, relatively not only predicts this point of nor return, which we call the event horizon. But it also predicts the existence of a few other special distances from a black hole. The first one is when matter starts plunging in we call it the innermost stable circular orbits. I know it's a mouthful, but it's basically the last points that matter can be in actual orbits around the black hole. If it's interior to that is just gonna start plunging in next up closer to the black hole is the photon ring the point where the lights does the Luke two loops and makes a really bright image that we are able to see as a as a circle in the sky and interior to that is is the event or Isan. And that's where basically the everything is moving toward the singularity. There. The space time have switched. Signs, and that's where all hell breaks loose. So if we were falling into the black hole, we would know that we're going through these places, maybe we would put ten -cially notice the innermost stable circular orbit. But after that, we're just falling in, and we wouldn't necessarily know that we've crossed the horizon it's for a distant observer like us that's these things become

Stephen Hawking's thesis and wheelchair up for auction
"CNBC, Stephen hawking was a brilliant and cosmic visionary and a global celebrity and his family has decided to auction off some of the late physicists possessions. Christie's will hold the sale online. And some of the items are expected to fetch hundreds of thousands of dollars. Five copies of Hawking's doctoral thesis on the origins of the universe will be sold. And they are estimated to be worth about two hundred thousand dollars apiece. Hawking was paralyzed with a motor neuron disease. A L S and his high tech wheelchairs are famous. One of those will be sold for charity. His Simpson's appearances are conic and the script from that show could go for thousands.

Stephen Hawking auction raises astronomical sum
"Our permission and agreement. It's hard to do. But that should be the goal period. That said nations should be compassionate. We should have effective immigration laws. When you see a column of people that's made up of women children and young men who wanna get across to avoid danger in Guatemala Honduras. It's hard to consider them invaders. Okay. Now, you talked about the importance of a nation should be able to control its borders. President Trump has sent thousands or will ultimately sent he says fifteen thousand US soldiers to the border to control it what there's been some pushback from from various senior military figures. Would you be among them? I don't think it's the move that. I would recommend. I think it also plays to emotion. I actually think it was designed to go before the midterm elections to meet with the idea of invasion of this caravan. But it's actually should be viewed separate from should we control our border? I think that shouldn't be a debate. That's something that we as a nation should do. But when you send a bunch of troops down to the border, and there are some legal limitations of what they can do you need to make sure that you explain to the American people that this isn't a classic invasion, and our soldiers aren't going to man the ramparts and shoot the invaders. Because that's an accurate. Okay. Except we know that President Trump has said I'll tell you this anybody throwing stones rocks like they did in Mexico where they badly police and soldiers in Mexico, we will consider that a firearm implicit in. That is the idea that they might be shot at well. I think it would be dramatically. Tragic to put soldiers in a position where they particularly shoot immigrants moving forward. Okay. And not as wet this. I mean, this is fascinating. It is an extraordinary issue. But there are senior military figures. General Jim WBZ who oversaw the effort to build the Iraqi army and police I think you'll know these figures he said, the militia was where the military is being used for partisan political purposes it's dangerous because it will political politicized the use of force in ways that democracy should avoid now. He said that actually just about the sending of the troops. And he's right. I think do because. Right. I think that we've used military force for political reasons as far back in history as you can record it that said, it doesn't make it right? Particularly for symbol like this for internal domestic politics. I'm critical of this move. But what I want to make sure we don't do is. We don't then say what we should control our borders. Of course, we should. We need to make sure that's clear sometimes we get around the political rhetoric. Forget it can you imagine the image would come up if immigrants came forward, and we use physical force against them. I mean, what it would do to the United States reputation in the world to the morality of the soldiers put in that position is unconscionable. Okay.

And we said, well, they ought to put that wheelchair in the Smithsonian. He's a British. He was a British citizenship. Put it in some, you know, someplace in Britain. Similar to the Cambridge University would be the place. Yeah. Sure. Apparently proceeds from the sale of the wheelchair will go to to charities is Stephen hawking foundation and the motor neuron disease association. It's also going to be used I guess to pay off.

Unimproved humans will die out or just become unimportant hawking died in March his book brief answers to the big questions is published this week.
Apple gets critical iPhone technology in $600 million Dialog deal
"Some source. Some, you know, wild blogger making claims. Or apple is betting six hundred million dollars at improving apple watch iphone battery life. Apple struck a deal that will push its chip making ambitions Ford. The tech giant agreed to pay six hundred million to dialogue semiconductor. A UK base chipmaker that has been working with apple since the first iphones come out. Congratulations to that team. All three hundred employees are going to become apple employees now. And so they paid three hundred million cash for a portion of the dialogue company, including licensing power management, technology assets, and the company will pay the remaining three hundred million to dialogue in an advanced in advance for products that come out within the next three years. Apple says, dialogue has deep expertise in cheap chip development, and we are thrilled to have this talented group of engineers who've long supported our product now working directly for apple, Johnny, Sarah, j Apple's senior vice president hardware technology said in a statement. Very cool. Congratulations to the dialogue team. Or Google pixel three exile, you gives you a love this. Those of you that are are Google pixel fans. And I know I, we've got a few that listen to the show. A matter of fact, I saw one post someone was ordering well, the pixel XL did arrive with a notch because we knew this was going to happen, but the notch can be hidden. It can be disabled and settings. If you don't wanna see the notch, it a black it out. So they, they added a notch hide option. So goodwill explains, it's it is to bring the best cameras. They're dual front cameras, so. Okay. Why would you hide it? Well, you hide it just because if you don't wanna see it, if you don't wanna look like apple fan boy, I guess. All right, pretty cool. Stephen Hawking's, of course, who is no longer with us. His final paper published tackles a famous paradox in if you want to learn about black holes and how they may have soft hair. Yes, that's the the term. It's a pretty fascinating article. I did actually take time in read it and it just give you a fair warning like the first two paragraphs are like dry. In, but then a little bit further down at actually gets kind of good in explains in layman's terms what they're talking about in then you get near the end any get

"Possibly do the contents impacts of this famous book justice brief history of time was professor hawking's way placing the wonders of the cosmos within reach of everyone with a curious mind it has helped shape and inspire a generation of ecosites on i count myself amongst the number but in any case i'll try and break his famous book down by telling you about my favorite bits of the physics it's explores his very brief history of a brief history of time stephen hawking were extensively on black holes in the mind bending nature singularities to establish ment of black hole thermodynamics before we even had any facial evidence that existed now the mainstay of sedation astronomy from hot gas clouds pulled apart by supermassive black holes too small backhoes stripping matteo from a companion star more recently lie go confirmed that presence from the detection of gravitational waves to spinning black holes collided emerge together i'm sure professor hawking was also excited by the prospect we might soon see a black hole for the first time telescopes all around the world lining up to create the biggest telescope ever the event horizon telescope the path of the line near blackhall is bent by gravity resulting shadow we can observe with this extremely high resolution instruments gravitational light bending the idea that the path of light can be affected by gravity is presented in brief history of time is a direct consequence of general relativity which predicts both pats of light and matter are affected by massive objects.

"Now best even hawking's name is the whole idea that black holes don't just draw stuff in they do give things off there is this hawking radiation isn't the yes so this was stephen hawking's next big contribution really he took this idea of jacob beckon stein's black holes have entropy and he says well if that's true then they must be taking part in other processes in physics entropy in physics we normally associate with disorder we normally associate it with having lots of little particles of matter or chunks of energy that are getting themselves into a complete mess and getting into disorder so he suggested that if black holes possess entropy they must also be able to generate disordered particles of radiation so it was a very strange conclusion to come to so nissen's then we we've got this material which is leaking out of a black hole for one to a better phrase this is slightly paradoxical because everyone thought black holes don't leak anything they're black for reason this soaking up everything including light so what is the stuff that effectively is coming out and won't sort of rate what sort of you're absolutely right that of course the famous thing about a black hole is supposed to be that it's black but nothing can ever come out of a black hole including light this is an example of what we call a quantum correction that although in sort of classical picture physics of black hole would be completely black when you put in quantum mechanics you get a very very small correction to that picture and the kind of rate we're talking about stuff leaking back out of black hole is incredibly slow the way i like to think about this imagine the sun and i want you to imagine that the son gets dimmer and dimmer and dimmer and dinner until it's about as bright as a torch that's a enormous factor if you had a black hole that was as massive as a son it wouldn't be as deep as the torch you'd have to keep going dimmer and dimmer and dimmer from there by the same factor again and that is the kind of level of stuff that's leaking back out the black hole so it's incredibly slow it will take many many times the age of the universe before a black hole actually appreciably shrinks due to leaking this material backout.

"Even took this idea and rabbit as it were and his early work was on apply pen roses ideas to show that inside a black hole so called singularity developed where everything would go infinite and signal for new physics and also at that time got some new ideas about the nature of black holes because he and others showed that any backhoe that exist in universe would be described by vase standard equation initiative ab idea an especially important because this was a time when people are starting to observe evidence for black holes objects quasars objects which out sean an entire galaxy even though they no bigger than a star discovered in nineteen sixty three and it was realized later that they probably involved backhoes sue people did have an insight into the existence of black holes but they had not really any way of grappling with how they behaved all what they're evil lucien was likely to be an took stephen hawking to apply the equations of roger penrose to them work out how we could drop cognitively with what these entities might be that the evidence they actually existed really came up rather gradually after nineteen seventy most people believe backhoes existed but stephen was one of those who really told us what black hose were like and that they were standardized objects and george ellis and stephen hawking wrote the classic textbook on this subject in the early nineteen seventies you said that the central black hole is this concept of a singularity what's that and why was that such a breakthrough for stephen hawking to begin to get to grips with well to explain what's important if you matching something just completely sterile collapses then no unsurprised as it goes to a point but the important result of penrose and hawking's work was that even if something collapsed in irregular way then once it gets past a point of no return it will actually former singularity where things go infinite.

"We that that nobel prize will left with an all the theories that hawking worked on and all that he did this despite his career long disability it's not just the public who are overwhelmed by that image says cosmetologist sean carroll almost all of us who are theoretical physicists you know we're very happy that our life's work is done sitting at a table whether it's in our office or at a coffee shop with pencil and paper scribbling down equations stephen hawking had two and succeeded in doing it all in his mind he would do the radical physics manipulating equations while he was being put to bed at night or while he's being wheeled around in his wheelchair and he managed to make these enormous contributions that any one of us would have been jealous to make without the ability to sit down and scribble on a piece of paper so it's kind of amazing to consider what that really entails and this we on to the ending as stephen hawking's work writer stuart clark suggests we see it as the first chapter in a book still to be written his work reminds me very strongly of the work of a german mathematician who your hannah's kept pla and kept plymouth mathematically described the all bits of the planets but he couldn't explain why the planets moved but he clearly showed there was something natural that was moving those planets i needed explaining and then in the later sixteenth century isaac newton came along with his theory of gravity which showed us exactly why the planets moved and this is where i think hawking's great contribution comes in he's the modern equivalent of your hannah's kept pla in that he's cody fide the problem he's shown us what we now need to go onto explain an invest way his work will enable the next einstein the next newton to bring it all together in a overarching theory stephen.

"The death of stephen hawking on wednesday rightly dominated the news earlier this week and it dominates this edition of science in action from the bbc world service i'm rolling peace and we're looking at the hard science that established talking as one of the leading physicists of our time but we've also time for the origins of human intelligence with new findings from the cradle of humanity and the inventor of the lithium ion battery which palace all our potables is taking on a bigger project modern society runs on the energy stored in a fossil fuel and that dependence is not sustainable it clear we have to wean ourselves from this dependent john good enough ninety five years old working on a battery that carries more energy is safer and lasts longer than anything we have today we start though with the dominant news this week the death of stephen hawking with paper titles like singularities of gravitational collapse and cosmology or way function of the universe and black hole explosions we can all get a sensor hawking was dealing with really profound ideas but the mathematical language of those ideas put some way beyond most of our understanding so we've turned to some experts sean carroll is a cosmetologist whose claims to fame include connecting the producers of the big bang theory the nerdy sitcom with stephen hawking i was friends with the big bang theory producers and they couldn't get through to stephen hawking so i was able to get him through and he appeared on the big bang theory so i can at least put that as a contribution but shorts contribution to this program is to help steer us through stephen hawking's physics which i put to him is inaccessible to most of us i wouldn't quite say it's inaccessible it's deep it's hard i think the simple way to grasp the magnitude of his contributions is to say that stephen hawking taught us more about gravity the force of gravity than any person's since albert einstein his greatest work.

"Okay so so that means a black hole is not entirely black yeah actually from far away if we were looking at a black hole in a very cold background it would look to us like the black hole is actually emitting sorry it was added temperature radiated radiating at a temperature and and that would explain the famous equation of hawking are two major kinds of black holes we think of astrophysics one of them is the end state behind star the sun will not become a black hole but more massive stars can june and then we find black holes in the centers of galaxies superduper high masses and we call them supermassive black holes because we tell it like it is so i was always wondering what questions stephen hawking might have for man is newton stephen hawking is as the greatest physicist of modern times and is newton as the father classical physics i thought this would make an interesting exchange if they could do such a thing so i asked him let's check it out you hold the same endowed chair that isaac newton did i'm just wondering if we had some way to communicate through time with him and tell them about what life is like today there any questions any problems you might wanna hand him to solve is a solar system stable and what happens to a star that cannot support itself against its own gravity thinking of newton sauve those questions he might give us deeper insights into black holes i'd be curious.

"Your favorite food favorite trick now at quays you those results peer reviews anything chang cal then it becomes a relation to relationship so just in case anyone who's been living under a rock stephen hawking has what we call lou gehrig's disease l s so and it's gradually paralyzed over the decades and right now he communicates through twitches in his cheek and these are red electrically and he moves the cursor up and down on that screen which we got a brief glimpse up and he basically bangs out the spelling of words and ultimately sentences and then scientific papers that well yes so janet about his favourite equation this is was this incredibly stunning discovery that hawking made the entire of black hole is that nothing can get out of it that's the whole idea can't reflect light it can emit light what falls in never comes out again when you talk about the area of the black hole what you're really describing is the region after which no information can ever escape nothing so this is the surface region surrounding the black hole yes there's nothing there it's not a surface of any material kind it's simply a boundary that separates what can come out and can never come out again and amazingly hawking realized in some sense which seems intuitive in retrospect but it was very difficult that really genius really after somebody tells me can't emit anything it certainly can't you can't even light or be eliminated in any way but what he realized was that if it absorbs stuff it must be taking entropy out of the other side of the boundary right entropy being a measure of disorder or randomness or in some sense energy and so if it takes entropy there is a law genetics that says always increases your room gets messier not cleaner without intervention so disorder always increases and so if it's taking inch out of this side of the boundary it must actually be producing its own entropy and each time it takes something in it gets a little bigger and has a little more entropy so in what form is this entropy is really the mystery then hawking realize the black hole must be evaporating must actually be radiating at a temperature like a hot object.
