### Physicists Create a Holographic Wormhole Using a Quantum Computer

The unprecedented experiment explores the possibility that space-time somehow emerges from quantum information.

### Gravitational Waves Should Permanently Distort Space-Time

The “gravitational memory effect” predicts that a passing gravitational wave should forever alter the structure of space-time. Physicists have linked the phenomenon to fundamental cosmic symmetries and a potential solution to the black hole information paradox.

### This Physicist Discovered an Escape From Hawking’s Black Hole Paradox

The five-decade-old paradox — long thought key to linking quantum theory with Einstein’s theory of gravity — is falling to a new generation of thinkers. Netta Engelhardt is leading the way.

### In Violation of Einstein, Black Holes Might Have ‘Hair’

A new study shows that extreme black holes could break the famous “no-hair” theorem, and in a way that we could detect.

### The Year in Physics

Featuring paradoxical black holes, room-temperature superconductors and a new escape from the prison of time.

### The Most Famous Paradox in Physics Nears Its End

In a landmark series of calculations, physicists have proved that black holes can shed information.

### Spotting Quantum Black Holes in the Lab

Can we test speculations about how quantum physics affects black holes and the Big Bang?

### Wormholes Reveal a Way to Manipulate Black Hole Information in the Lab

A proposal for building wormhole-connected black holes offers a way to probe the paradoxes of quantum information.

### Hologram Within a Hologram Hints at Fate of Black Holes

Calculations involving a higher dimension are guiding physicists toward a misstep in Stephen Hawking’s legendary black hole analysis.
