Stephen Hawking says there are no black holes

At least, not as we’ve defined them. In a new paper, Hawking says that one of the defining features of black holes — the complete inability of even light to escape — may not hold true.
"The absence of event horizons mean that there are no black holes — in the sense of regimes from which light can’t escape to infinity," writes Hawking, in a new paper. In other words, the notion that black holes have an event horizon, which prevents anything from escaping ever, is wrong.
