Stephen Hawking's Theory on Black Holes has been proven to be Correct

The detection of gravitational waves caused by the merger of two black holes confirmed one of Hawking's most famous theorems.

Researchers detected ripples in space-time caused by the merging of two black holes, proving one of Stephen Hawking's famous ideas. The theorem was first proposed long time back, claiming that a black hole possibly will not shrink in size over time. Einstein's theory of relativity, which established gravitational waves and black holes, laid the foundation for the theorem. The black hole area theory has always fascinated physicists since it is based on the same thermodynamic premise that entropy cannot decrease over time. It continues to rise at a steady rate, and new evidence supports this view even more.

The data came from gravitational waves that were created when two black holes merged into one. They divided the gravitational wave data collected by the Advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) into two groups: before the merger and after the merger. They calculated the surface areas of the black holes in each group using both data.

According to the estimates, the merged black hole's whole surface area was higher than the totality of the two smaller black holes. This finding backs up the law of the zone, which states that the size of black holes does not change over time. In the history of the cosmos, black holes have always been the ultimate evil. Almost every galaxy contains a dark mass of objects that do not allow light to flow through them. Their own Milky Way galaxy has a supermassive black hole, which necessitates further research, which was pioneered by scientist Stephen Hawking.

Hawking radiation is what it's called. Researchers substituted sound waves for the light waves that black holes eat in space in an analogue black hole built of rubidium gas because rubidium atoms zoom faster than the speed of sound, hence no sound wave that reaches the event horizon can ever escape.
