If a clock could survive in a black hole, would time stand still inside the black hole? What would space-time be like? The answer is kind of boring since we do not have physics to describe the inside of black holes, the official answer is “we don’t know”. We can speculate given what happens right … Read more Does time stand still inside a black hole?
Does the speed of light increase as it nears the event horizon due to the influence of a black hole’s gravitational pull? The short answer is no, the speed of light is always the same. To explore the subtle aspects of this question, we will consider it in the context of Albert Einstein’s general theory of … Read more Does light accelerate when approaching the edge of a black hole?
Does the degenerate matter inside a black hole have a temperature, or is it so compact it’s functionally at absolute zero? Also, if event horizon scales with mass, does matter inside the event horizon have a specifiable density? Thanks for a very intriguing question. The basic answer is that no one knows and that it … Read more Does the matter inside a black hole have temperature and density?
