If the speed of light is constant, what will it look like when a star collapses and becomes a black hole in which light can escape? From an observer outside the event horizon, will the speed be constant on light before collapse, and then just suddenly stop coming like it`s stopped?
Is it so that the light just keep spinning inside the black hole even in singularity, or can it be said to have no speed? Is it orbiting the singularity? And the last light to escape, will it bend in the black hole vortex, so the light will change direction relative to the outside observer?
