Stephen Hawking about “Quantum Black Holes”

Stephen Hawking is currently attending a historic conference in Stockholm – organized by the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics (Nordita) and Laura Mersini-Houghton, a professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. As an astrophysicist I was especially grateful having been able to hear one of the most brilliant scientists of our time speaking about “Quantum Black Holes” – hypothetical tiny black holes, for which quantum mechanical effects play an important role.
