According to Stephen Hawking, if two particles directly on the event horizon collide and one of the particles is bounced away, it can escape. Source:

Anyway, I'm wondering how these two particles can be created out of nothing?

One more question: It is theorized that if enough energy escapes, the mass of the black hole will become small enough that the black hole will not be able to completely curve the space around it and it will explode with a power greater than millions of atomic bombs. How can a black hole explode?
