Ask Ethan: How Do Hawking Radiation And Relativistic Jets Escape From A Black Hole?

The most important feature of a black hole is that it has an event horizon: a region of space where the gravitational field is so strong that nothing, not even light, can escape from it. How, then, do we explain the matter and radiation that we both see and predict should come from them? That’s …
