From “Escaping Gravity’s Clutches: Information Could Escape from Black Holes After All, Study Suggests” (ScienceDaily, Aug. 11, 2011), we learn:

Conventional thinking asserts that black holes swallow everything that gets too close and that nothing can escape, but a new study suggests that information could escape from black holes after all.

Okay, but

Dr. Patra adds: “We cannot claim to have proven that escape from a black hole is truly possible, but that is the most straight-forward interpretation of our results. Indeed, our results suggest that quantum information theory will play a key role in a future theory combining quantum mechanics and gravity.”

If they’re into information theory, they are on the right track.
