I have a question on Black holes....that I hope someone could answer. It has been experimentally proven that vacuum fluctuations are real. And also the law of conservation of energy can be violated for a short duration of time(?) until the particle and the antiparticle annihilate themselves. So if a pair of a particle and an antiparticle "appear" very very close to the even horizon, and orient themselves in such a way that one is inside and the other is outside. And lets say the particle is outside and is now drifting away from the even horizon. The AP is inside, and so there is no way it will escape. Here..we would be violating the law of conservation of energy...wouldn't we??? In other words...the total energy of the universe would change???

Hawking radiation is the name of the phenomina you describe here. While I don't think there is any loss of energy, I will leave it to others more in the know to give a more complete answer.

I think its more of a gain of energy in this case... As I mentioned in my original post... the particle and antiparticle appear out of nowhere... or..maybe I'm wrong... I'm not too sure.

Hum,
there is no violation of the law of energy conservation.
