Review of revision 4390219 [Not ready][edit]

"Is called" and "has been called" mean two different things. "Is called" is another way of saying "that's its name," that this radiation is regularly and habitually called "Hawking radiation" right now. "Has been called" means that it is only sometimes called "Hawking radiation" and that name is either one of two or more important names or that the term "Hawking radiation" has fallen out of use. A brief web search for "Hawking Radiation" indicates that the term is indeed still in use.
I do not feel that "gravity is a fundamental aspect of the universe" needs to be sourced in the article because it is common knowledge. Here are three articles that refer to gravity as a fundamental part of the universe: How Stuff Works Cornell University Laboratory West Texas A&M University
The John Preskill bet is in the USA Today source. Hit CTRL-F "Preskill" and it will take you right there. I just this minute found out that there's a Wikipedia article, on this bet. I have added text to address your other issues, including a second source for the statement from Hawking's family. Darkfrog24 (talk) 22:17, 14 March 2018 (UTC)
Confirm Preskill is in the source. I may have typoed it. Sorry. ( Fixed)
Re "fundamental aspects" I'm not sure what to do with it, thanks for sharing your view. I'll leave it to someone else to check (which may or may not be me depending on the timing of my other work today) (Symbol wait.svg Doing...)
Confirm the statement is now supported by two independent sources. ( Fixed)
Couldn't fully grasp the 'is called' idea you just said. If the past tense becomes another idiom, 'was named in his honor' construct could be used. ( Not done Fixed)
Re the Preskill sentence - thanks for adding 'Hawking conceded that they probably cannot.'. (( Fixed)
Re the Preskill sentence - it is supported by only one source. I'd attribute it: add 'According to US News', until or unless it is verifiable somewhere else. ( Not done Fixed)
Paragraph six does have a mention of new york times, This is good thank you. ( Fixed)
I've picked on the 'not done' items and edited the article. --Gryllida (talk) 03:23, 15 March 2018 (UTC)
