So, hear we go. This topic has been chased around more than a hockey puck in a NHL game.

“There are no black holes" only apparent horizons.This new Hawking paper, which has not yet passed peer review, was based on a Skype talk he gave for a meeting at the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics in Santa Barbara, California, in August 2013. Nature explains that Hawking's new work “is an attempt to solve what is known as the black-hole firewall paradox, which has been vexing physicists for almost two years, after it was discovered by theoretical physicist Joseph Polchinski of the Kavli Institute.”

d**n! First of all Pluto isn't a planet and now we have no black holes. I'll go on believing in both.

Thanks for sharing the paper. It is amazing that as a scientist you sometimes have to completely redefine your life's work. It would be a radical change for a black hole to not contain a singularity and instead just be concentrated matter.
