I know things, particles, can move faster than the speed of light, but that x-rays in particular can`t....if black holes are thought to be dettected by the presence of emmitted x-ray radiation, how does the radiation escape the intese pull of the singularity? I thought nothng could escape the event horizon...am I wrong? And, where do blackholes get the energy for the x-ray radiatioin from? The universe around itself? Or the matter that it was formed with? The matter that it takes into itself, I know the only way to take madd AWAY from a black hole is to shoot a beam of negative antimatter at it, if such a thing exists. If this is the only way energy, or mass, I use the two twerms loosly, can be drawn from a black hole, where does the x-ray radiation come from?
