Breakthrough Starshot, the Stephen Hawking and Mark Zuckerberg-backed plan to send spacecraft to our nearest stellar neighbors, has a new target, and it wants us all to have the chance to glimpse it up close.
Everything you didn’t know about black holes is wrong.
Stephen Hawking's AI company is letting its new supercomputer read huge collections of messages.
The science-themed update allows players to complete new quests as they interact with Stephen Hawking.
A laboratory experiment might have just confirmed Stephen Hawking's theory on black holes.
Is a black hole a true black hole if it devours sound waves instead of light waves? Will Stephen Hawking care as long as it proves once-and-for-all his theory on black hole radiation? Can sonic black holes be used to get rid of bad music? According to...
Hawking radiation was proposed 40 years ago, but scientists still haven't confirmed it exists.
In the 1970s, Stephen Hawking made an audacious prediction that black holes aren’t totally black; they evaporate over time, emitting tiny amounts of radiation in the process. Now Israeli physicists have reported the strongest evidence to date that Hawking was right in a new paper in Nature Physics. Read more...
Efforts to study black holes in the lab with versions that trap sound instead of light may have revealed a key prediction made by Stephen Hawking
Jeff Steinhauer, a physicist at Technion University in Israel, has created an acoustic black hole and observed particles slipping out of its grasp, providing the strongest evidence to date of one of Stephen Hawking’s most famous predictions. In 1974, Stephen Hawking predicted that black holes might not be the bottomless pits we imagine them to be. Show More Summary

Technically Incorrect: The famed physicist says we're going to have to start sharing our money more.
Stephen Hawking, the celebrated physicist, argues that money was a key factor in the outcome of the EU referendum in The Guardian. The 74-year-old, who argued for Britain’s continued membership of the EU in the run-up to the vote, insists...Show More Summary
This past March, Robin Li Yanhong, the founder and chief executive of China's Google, the online search giant Baidu, announced that he is looking to the nation's military to support the China Brain Project to make the mainland the world...
One of the smartest people on the planet tries to explain the unexplainable.
(Berkeley Mews) It could be cool if the Earth was a Poké Stop. But there's too much risk. It could attract potentially hostile and dangerous alien civilizations to Earth. As Stephen Hawking warned us last year, that's something that we don't need.
Several prominent scientists, including Stephen Hawking, have cautioned against humanity broadcasting our presence to intelligent life on other planets. Other civilizations might try to find Earth-like planets using the same techniques we do, including looking for the dip in light...
An open letter a "manifesto" of sorts, framed and singed by many of the great scientists and minds of our century --from Stephen Hawking to Frank Drake, Lord Martin Rees, to Caltech's Kip Thorne shown above-- was published this past...
