who? who moved the black hole? there is not an answer to that who. in fact, if you take einstein's equation -- charlie: there is no idea what a blackhole is? neil: it is a region of space where matter has collapsed to such density that the gravity -- if matter collapses and gets denser, the surface gravity gets higher. it would be harder to escape. at some point, this collection of blob of matter has condensed so significantly that for you to escape, you would have to travel faster than the speed of light. that means light cannot escape. if light cannot escape, you are not getting out of this place. it is not only dark, but it is a whole -- hole. three-dimensional. blackhole. charlie: how long have we known about it? neil: dan stein -- einstein -- nine charlie: he was interested in them? neil: no. i asked stephen hawking over dinner went in at isaac newton make certain discoveries with his own mathematics that he invented? his response was, einstein did not come up with black holes. you cannot think up everything.

known about it? neil: einstein could have predicted with his own equations, but he didn't interestingly enough. charlie: he was interested in them? neil: no. i asked stephen hawking over dinner, why didn't isaac you make certain discoveries with his own mathematics that he invented? his response was, einstein did not come up with black holes. you can't think of everything. [laughter] charlie: what else did you talk about at dinner? neil: the conversation was slow, of course. charlie: i have talked to him as well. and you have to submit questions. neil: that is if you are scheduling an interview. this was just banter. i'm going to tell you how it was. the conversation is going. you might even send something his way, but then you keep your own conversation with others. later on, that answer comes out. you rejoin the conversation. that's how that unfolds. charlie: what dazzles you about him? the triumph of his life? or the quality of his mind? neil: i would say all of the above. i am delighted that the public on a glimpse in "the theory of everything." i got to see a prescreening on that.
