A year later the trio published a paper that suggested that information-preserving massless particles known as "soft hair" could surround black holes.

Physics from Cambridge University and Harvard University under the joint leadership and authorship with Stephen Hawking several decades worked on the study, which was unusual properties, which are endowed with objects when passing through a black hole.

The paper named BlackHole Entropy and Soft Hair handles with the end result for data when it falls into a blackhole, an issue that hypothetical physicists allude to as 'the information paradox. The researchers dedicated the publication to Stephen Hawking, writing: "We are deeply saddened to lose our much-loved friend and collaborator Stephen Hawking whose contributions to black hole physics remained vitally stimulating to the very end". Some theoretical physicists believe they do, while others do not.

The eminent physicist Stephen Hawking, who past away a year ago, was one of the world's foremost authorities on black holes. The English scientist was interred in Cambridge. Now, the modern genius' final scientific paper has been completed and posted online by his colleagues for the world to revel in.

The physicists show that a black hole's entropy may be recorded by photons that surround the black hole's event horizon, the point at which light can not escape the intense gravitational pull. That is the question posed in Professor Stephen Hawking's last academic work, called 'Black Hole Entropy and Soft Hair.' Dan Damon spoke to Sasha Haco, one of the co-authors of the paper.

Changes in a black hole's temperature and entropy, or disorder, can preserve some of an object's information upon black hole consumption. So it turned out that black holes aren't entirely "black" - they emit "Hawking radiation", consisting of photons, neutrinos, and to a lesser extent all sorts of massive particles. They are not only hot objects, but they too lost the temperature in the space. "It's telling you that soft hair really is doing the right stuff", Perry went on to say. However, Perry said that the study does not completely answer the puzzle.

"It was very hard for Stephen to communicate and I was put on a loudspeaker to explain where we had got to".

Perry said, 'We still don't have the technology to verify Stephen Hawking's big ideas. When Perry explained the theory to Hawking, "he simply produced an enormous smile". I told him we'd got somewhere. "He knew the final result", he said.
