Hawking radiation is blackbody radiation that is predicted to be released by black holes, due to quantum effects near the event horizon. It is named after the physicist Stephen Hawking, who provided a theoretical argument for its existence in 1974. Hawking's work helped explain the results of Jacob Bekenstein, who had predicted that black holes should have a finite entropy.
