What happens to information about objects that fall into black holes has vexed scientists for decades but the famed physicist believes he has the answer.
On Tuesday, famed physicist Stephen Hawking presented new theories on black holes to a crowd of esteemed scientists and members of the media at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.
Hawking focused on something called the information paradox, which continues to puzzle scientists who study black holes. In a nutshell, the parradox involves the fact that information about the star that formed a black hole seems to be lost inside it, presumably disappearing when the black hole inevitably disappears. These things cannot be lost, according to the way we think the universe works, and physicists generally believe that they aren’t really lost. But where does the information go when the black hole that’s absorbed it goes kaput?
Where does information about a star that formed a black hole go to? Theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking says it goes to the event horizon on the boundary of a black hole. Photo: Getty Images

Britain’s Queen Elizabeth might have to move out of Buckingham Palace for an extended period under plans being considered to allow builders to carry out millions of pounds of repairs to the crumbling building.
The 300-year-old palace needs about 150 million pounds ($240 million) worth of work to fix the roofs and replace old wiring, ancient decorating and dated plumbing, a royal source said on Wednesday.
Although no decision is imminent as funding has yet to be agreed, the royals who use the palace as a London base, including the queen and some of her children, might have to move out as well if that is the most cost-effective solution.
“It is one of a number of potential options as we take forward the essential maintenance of the palace,” the royal source said.
If she does have to move out, the queen has several official residences to choose from, including Windsor Castle west of London, Sandringham House in Norfolk, Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh and Balmoral Castle further north in Scotland.
Buckingham Palace has 775 rooms including 52 royal and guest bedrooms and 188 bedrooms for staff. It was bought by King George III for his wife Queen Charlotte and has served as the official London residence of Britain’s monarchs since 1837.

“By 2050, the collective size of the economies we currently deem ’emerging’ will have increased five-fold and will be larger than the developed world.” –HSBC Global Research
Times, they are a-changing. An economic report by HSBC has predicted a seismic shift in the structure of the global economy, with the economic centre of gravity shifting from the north Atlantic to central Asia – particularly China and India. If the predictions are true (and it must be said that economists are not known for agreeing with each other) the world will look very, very different indeed.
Through a complex but fascinating analysis of economic systems and infrastructure and serious number crunching, HSBC’s analysts’ economics prowess has projected the wealth of countries (GDP and per capita income) in 2050. You can read the full report:The World in 2050; Quantifying the Shift in the Global Economyhere.
Read on to discover which countries will be the world’s richest – in 2050:
In 2050, China is expected to be the world’s richest, and probably the most powerful, economy, with a GDP of $24.62 trillion and a per capita income of $17,759. China’s income per capita will still only be roughly a third of that in the US so there is room for considerably more growth. On the minus side, it will no longer be the most populous place on earth – (spoiler alert) that honour will go to India.

The BBC has apologised and launched an internal inquiry after a tweet sent from the account of one of its producers said Queen Elizabeth II had died, during a test of coverage for a royal death.
The first of a series of tweets was sent from the account of broadcast reporter Ahmen Khawaja around 9:30am (local time), and said: “BREAKING: Queen Elizabeth is being treated at King Edward 7th Hospital in London. Statement due shortly”.
Ms Khawaja then added: “Queen Elizabrth (sic) has died,” according to a screen shot published by British media.
The tweets sparked a storm on social networks and the rumours about the Queen’s health were picked up by numerous international media outlets.

The tweets were swiftly deleted and we apologise for any offence.
