Canadian astronomers from the University of Waterloo have discovered echoes of gravity waves, lying in the basis of Hawking radiation.
When studying the merger of neutron stars called GW170817 astronomers revealed that around young black holes are formed a quantum circle of virtual particles, according to the Chronicle.info with reference to FaceNews.ua.
They believe that as a result of this event in the space formed black hole.
As you know, Hawking radiation is a stream of virtual particles near the event horizon of a black hole.
The gravitational field of a black hole transforms the virtual particles in the pair particle-antiparticle.
A particle with “negative energy” beyond the event horizon, allowing the other particle to leave the gravitational field.
According to the law of conservation of energy black hole must lose mass and evaporate.
