Black holes are like the Hotel California: you can never leave. Anything that enters a black hole might as well have been snuffed out from existence — and that's a problem for quantum mechanics, which says that information can never be destroyed.

To do it, they're using a bizarre phenomenon known as quantum entanglement.
