If I had a "rocketship" that could travel into the speed of light (which is according to Einstein's theory only possible with an object consisting of restmass zero.) and i tried to travel trough the black hole, there would be a couple of problems that would appear. 1: When i approach the "Event horizon" which is the "point of no return" (Must have a speed fast as light to escape) time would slow down and eventually stop as i "enter" the singularity. (the time dilation only appears to the observer on the outside) 2:Maybe I wont notice any slowdown of time at all,but i will be as said by S.Hawking "spagettified" and crushed into a spaceless point under an enormous heat. And the only physical proofs of my existence would be radiation and heat..."Now that doesen't sound good!" Im sure there is more problems and paradoxes connected to timetraveling than i know about so please mail.
