Black Holes

At about 4pm, the phone rang -- it was the BBC! Apparently, an editor there had read in New Scientist that Stephen Hawking had solved the "Black Hole Information Paradox." So -- despite the fact that he won't be presenting the results until the GR17 meeting in Dublin next week -- I'm off to the BBC to tell them all I know about Hawking and the Black Hole Information Paradox.

More on my encounter with big media later...
