How are scientists trying to unify the two theories?

Scientists are researching how atoms falling into a black hole emit radiation and its quantum behaviour, resembling Hawking radiation. Their calculations on this radiation, known as “horizon brightened acceleration radiation entropy,” reveal insights into the Einstein principle of equivalence.

This work aims to unify quantum theory and general relativity into a single theory called “quantum gravity,” enhancing our understanding of the universe from tiny particles to immense galaxies.
