Well, basically Hawking said that there’s no event Horizon. Information can and does escape – nothing is lost. Traditional Black Holes don’t exist. They were some mathematical fun for a few decades but reality doesn’t match up to the math.
Hawking has yet to pass Peer Review – it’s just on ARXIV which you or I could post to tongue emoticon
Means there’s been far more science fiction (based on math) about them than science fact.
Science fact is getting better at it.
