Black holes are emitting energy from an earlier universe that existed before ours, according to a Nobel Prize winner.
Reinhard Genzel and Andrea Ghez, who shared the Nobel Prize with Sir Roger, provided the most convincing evidence of a supermassive black hole in the centre of the Milky Way, suggesting that such an event may be taking place there.
It is possible that the period of time required for a black hole to completely evaporate might exceed the age of the universe as we know it, making it impossible to detect.
“I assert that Hawking radiation has been observed. There was no beginning with the Big Bang. According to The Telegraph, Sir Roger stated that there was something present before the Big Bang and that something will be part of our future.

“Our universe keeps expanding, and all of its mass decays away. According to my illogical theory, that distant future will eventually turn into the Big Bang of another aeon.
“Thus, our Big Bang started with something that was in the distant past of an earlier aeon, and there would have been analogous black holes draining away, via Hawking evaporation, and they would have produced these dots in the sky, which I call Hawking Points.
“We have spotted them. These spots, which are slightly warmed regions, have a diameter that is about eight times that of the Moon. At least six of these points have solid supporting evidence.
The concept has drawn a lot of criticism, and it hasn’t yet been shown whether this black hole radiation actually exists.
Additionally, all particles would have to lose mass as the universe ages if an infinitely huge universe in one existence had to shrink to an endlessly small cosmos in the next, a theory that has also been received with scepticism.
Standard cosmology holds that the universe underwent a brief expansion, or “inflation,” following the Big Bang, which would have eliminated anomalies in the universe’s structure.
Sir Roger replied that until their existence in actuality was proven, black holes were also regarded as existing only in mathematics.
According to the BBC, he claimed that “many were highly dubious at the time, it took a long time before black holes were recognised… I think their relevance is only partially appreciated.”
