"Four decades ago, Stephen Hawking posed a paradox about black holes and quantum theory that still challenges the imaginations of theoretical physicists today. One of the most promising approaches to resolving the "information paradox" (the notion that nothing, not even information itself, survives beyond a black hole's point-of-no-return event horizon) is string theory, a part of modern physics that has wiggled its way into the popular consciousness." -
Tonight at 7 p.m. ET, The Perimeter Institute will be hosting a special lecture by physicist Amanda Peet. During the live event, Peet, who is an associate professor at the University of Toronto, will describe how string theory is allowing us to study extreme black hole physics in new and fruitful ways.
